Will you fully trust the hospitals?

A nurse accidentally administered a wrong medicine to one of her patients and it causes immediate death of that patient. That particular patient was admitted because of diahhrea only. With this kind of incidents would you now fully trust your patients to a hospital?

What's your alternative if you choose not to trust our hospitals? These incidents are isolated cases, not common occurences. It was clearly the fault of the nurse not of the entire hospital but naturally the hospital will also be held responsible in this situation.

I agree with ladygram, When your sick, where would you go, other than the hospitals, I had a case where my husband was diagnosed as severe gas pain and was prescribed medicines for that, the pain worsened that i needed to bring him back, to find out later that it was a kidney trouble, good thing it did not erupt, The best thing to do is have second opinion especially when in severe cases.

Nope I dont truly trust the hospital....I think patients should also be aware of their medication by asking the dcotor about the it. And in a way monitoring the activities of the nurses or other hospital staff taking care of you. Its for our good you'll never know if you'l bump into a a careless nurse. And if something bad happens...for all they care...
