At one time or another, we all need medical care. Whether it’s for a sudden illness, a chronic condition or a serious illness or injury, we’ll need a doctor’s help. Of course, we expect the care we receive to help us, not harm us. But unfortunately, that is not always the case. Doctors, nurses, and other medical staff sometimes make mistakes, and sometimes accidents occur, all of which can harm patients. Do you know what steps you can take to reduce your risk?
