medical errors 2019

In the end, we will have to judge the performance of AI on measurable metrics: randomized trials for starters. Since GBD 2015, 24 new VA studies and 169 new country-years of VR data at the national level have been added. THE FINANCIAL AND HUMAN COST OF MEDICAL ERROR ©2019 Betsy Lehman Center for Patient Safety l i PREFACE AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This report, and the two research studies upon which it is based, aims to fill information gaps about the incidence and key risks to patient safety in Massachusetts, But nevertheless, there will be harm to some. @Narad: nowadays, AI seem to refer more and more to technologies based on neural networks. That is not what it is saying. This poor man has obvious issues but Polly just eggs him on and exploits him. For one thing, there are only 2.7 million total deaths per year in the US, which would mean that these estimates, if accurate, would translate into 9% to 15% of all deaths being due to medical errors. The only guy in my program who actually got a degree (out of about two dozen) was doing radiotherapeutic targeting, now that I think back. Schadenfreude. When last I discussed this issue three years ago, specifically a rather poor study out of The Johns Hopkins that estimated that 250,000 to 400,000 deaths per year are due to medical errors, I pointed out how these figures are vastly inflated and don’t even make any sense on the surface. The attempt to quantify how many deaths are attributable to medical error began in earnest in 2000 with the Institute of Medicine’s To Err Is Human, which estimated that the death rate due to medical error was 44,000 to 96,000, roughly one to two times the death rate from automobiles. But I suppose to you any medical specialist is only interested in making the most profit of his patients and not in curing them. ** according to some. Older patients, of course, have more medical comorbidities and tend to be more medically fragile, with less room for things to go wrong. Medical errors don't always involve flashing neon mistakes. It’s almost like checklists and infection prevention protocols and all the other stuff have actually had a positive impact on patient outcomes. Your right, in a perfect world there would be no medical errors, but we need to look at the figures. National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, Steven P. Novella, MD – Founder and Executive Editor, David H. Gorski, MD, PhD – Managing Editor, Association of Adverse Effects of Medical Treatment With Mortality in the United States: A Secondary Analysis of the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study, surgical oncologist at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, American College of Surgeons Committee on Cancer Liaison Physician. Not exactly what it was asked to do. https://t.co/XtkP2CX2gY, — David Gorski, MD, PhD (@gorskon) February 1, 2019. They’re devoid of meaning. Finally, the authors analyzed the cause-of-death chains for all deaths from 1980 to 2014 to determine how frequently AEMT was (1) anywhere within a death certificate’s cause-of-death chain (ie, not underlying cause) and (2) which other contributing causes were most frequently found in the causal chain when AEMT was certified as the underlying cause. Well, now here is GW Pharmaceuticals’ recommendation for those taking epidiolex that show elevated liver enzymes: The majority of ALT elevations occurred when coadministered with valproate and, to a lesser extent, with clobazam (see Drug interaction overview) Briefly, data were obtained from deidentified death records from the National Center for Health Statistics; records included information on sex, age, state of residence at time of death, and underlying cause of death. Remember, too, that this is a study of all AEMTs, but the authors did try to estimate what proportion of these AEMTs were due to medical error, or, as they put it, “misadventure.” Take a look at this graph, Figure 3 from the paper: First of all, notice how, not unexpectedly, AEMTs increase with patient age. AND that’s leaving out some. Let’s unpack this a minute. Indeed, I was co-director of a statewide QI effort for breast cancer patients for three years. As for biological vs mechanical, my guess (and it’s only a guess) would be that you have more chance of having a human error in mechanical simply because you have more people doing more “things” to you. If my dad would have died, would that be death by medical error? DON”T. Preventing medical errors must be a high priority for any healthcare provider. (Too much IOM and Hopkins on the brain, I guess.) The way the FDA is structured, anything deemed of medicinal value is locked up behind (sometimes insurmountable) prescription walls and not allowed to be consumed no matter how safe it is. — Mark Hoofnagle (@MarkHoofnagle) February 1, 2019. Michael PDF download: MLN Connects for Thursday, December 6, 2018 – CMS. Medical developpements often mean, people who would have died from some condition in the past, might be saved by medicine that has been developped. Error rates are significantly higher in the U.S. than in other developed countries such as Canada, Australia, … Each death was categorized as resulting from a single underlying cause. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice. Likewise, if you train artificial intelligence on medical records, you pick up all the biases that are in the records: if the records on which AI is trained do not mention medical errors for whatever biases there may be, this bias will ultimately be picked up by the neural network. I don’t mean to pick on Allen, either. The biggest problem with AI will likely be “overfitting”. I didn’t find any, but I did see several “patient fell out of bed”, which seems common in elderly patients who are disoriented. Well, they would because they want to scare the public away from doctors into their greedy, grasping hands. It doesn’t mean that doctors will allow patients to smoke joints in the psych ward. I’m just saying that there are things worth investigating with the endocannabinoid system. O.K. Medical records often contain incorrect information that can lead to inappropriate medical treatment. And I’d be very upset if someone put amoxicillin in my cake. @F68.10 What I am trying to say is that cannabis as a drug would have known side effects. For that to be true, one-third to one-half of all hospital deaths would have to be due to medical errors. (Too much IOM and Hopkins on the brain, I guess.) @Shelly: my experience is that healthcare workers often fail to discriminate whether their actions have adverse consequences. Every hospital began implementing QI initiatives. After MJD picked up the medications at the pharmacy, and reviewed the list, an antibiotic was absent. There happens to be interesting research on the cannabinoid system. Second, it used rigorous methodology to identify deaths that were primarily due to AEMTs. The claim that medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the US has always rested on very shaky evidence; yet it’s become common wisdom that is cited as though everyone accepts it. DEPLIN® is a prescription medical food for use only under the supervision of a physician. — Mark Hoofnagle (@MarkHoofnagle) February 1, 2019. Damn, that lie just won’t die, and even good reporters fall for it. Also listed as “medical food”, by the way. Oh Tommy, that’s IMAX grade projection right there. And it’s not even an amusing or slightly interesting antivaxer. But if the patient is less fortunate, a medication error can lead to significant harm, even death. More realistically, if these figures- either woo-meisters; or more SB ones- were true, wouldn’t most people have experience with a family member or friend being a victim? Of course not, one death from medical error is too many. https://spectrum.ieee.org/biomedical/devices/making-medical-ai-trustworthy-and-transparent. But if estimates of 250,000 to 400,000 deaths due to medical error are way too high, what is the real number?

My main thought is “wow. So because Orac is a cancer-specialist and researcher, is opinion isn’t valid? JustaTech, were you aware that pregnant women are no longer advised to take ‘folic acid’? I don’t think a cancer-specialist makes much profit from one specific treatment. By John Palmer. All women of reproductive age should get 400 micrograms (mcg) of folic acid each day, in addition to consuming food with folate from a varied diet. The FDA seems to think such ‘fortification’ is a good idea; So be it. Footnotes explained that this category included medical errors in that figure. We should do better. A study published last month suggests that it’s almost certainly a lot lower and has been modestly decreasing since 1990. On quack websites, the number is even higher. Such groupings are dependent on which ICD code was assigned as the underlying cause. The first one because the diagnosis was wrong. Certainly not a “holistic” MD: he cannot substantiate a claim of being able to keep track. How did we get here? It rather begs the question that, if Big Medicine puts out false and distorted figures to make them selves look good, where does Thomas get the figures to disagree with this. . Recent studies of medical errors have estimated errors may account for as many as 251,000 deaths annually in the United States (U.S)., making medical errors the third leading cause of death. They are tiny ( lusciously filled with pastry crème) efficient harbingers of destruction** After years of scholarly effort I have finally absolutely and undeniably proved that evolution is false! Major events causing death are actually rare, and they are a very big deal – police involved, coroners court, TV coverage big. meggie folk like you always fall back on asking for evidence. And I’m going to firmly stand by my statement. It is often someone else’s job to report errors. So what we can say from these data are that (1) AEMTs are not uncommon; (2) the vast majority of AEMTs that occur in patients who die aren’t the primary cause of death; (3) only a relatively small fraction of AEMTs are due to misadventure or medical error; and (4) population-adjusted AEMT rates have been slowly decreasing. Plausible underlying causes of death were assigned to each ill-defined or implausible cause of death according to proportions derived in 1 of 3 ways: (1) published literature or expert opinion, (2) regression models, and (3) initial proportions observed among targets. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2737440/. Then we’ll all be sorry. Yet, as Mark Hoofnagle points out in the Twitter thread above, the estimates for “death by medicine” keep increasing. ahahahahahaha. Cucumber sandwiches? You do know that neural tube defects due to lack of folate happen in the very first weeks of pregnancy, long before almost all women know they are pregnant? Q. Serious, cautious and nuanced accounting is more needed than throwing numbers. Disclosure: I get all my folate from unfiltered craft IPA beer. Each death was categorized as resulting from a single underlying cause. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ultimately fell in line with the DEA’s interpretation, scheduled Epidiolex (an approved CBD drug), and recently issued a public statement warning that it is unlawful “to introduce food containing added CBD … into interstate commerce.”. Many of these studies also used administrative databases, which are primarily designed for insurance billing and thus not very good for other purposes. Also not surprisingly, it got basically no press coverage. “At that time, it was under-recognized that diagnostic errors, medical mistakes and the absence of safety nets could result in someone’s death, and because of that, medical errors were unintentionally excluded from national health statistics,” says Makary. Of course, grieving people may view any death as preventable and blame medical staff or hospitals BUT most don’t. He posts more fake memes than a Russian Troll. But take it from me, health services devote enormous amounts of their time, money and resources to reduce the chance of incidents occurring. Alas, there are situations were people are overusing medical services. Of course they will put out false misleading studies. In case it wasn’t clear to everyone else from your stupid YouTube link, you are a horrible person. Programmers do strange things. For instance, über-quack Gary Null teamed with Carolyn Dean, Martin Feldman, Debora Rasio, and Dorothy Smith to write a paper “Death by Medicine,” which estimated that the total number of iatrogenic deaths is nearly 800,000 a year, which would be the number one cause of death, if true and nearly one-third of all deaths in the US. Interestingly the study shows that the rate of adverse events for emergency admissions is double that for non emergency admissions. Even I can understand that and I don’t have any medical education. And fourth, CBD would be treated like bonbons. Folic acid fortification SAVES LIVES so you can just go stuff it. The study is not bulletproof, of course. Go be inane someplace else. Your research might be enhanced by viewing the organism’s eponymous you tube channel which feature 911 Truth, the Jimmy Dore Show and Dr Sherry Tenpenny. I just perused Thomas’ Facebook page. Let’s look at the author’s primary results. If you’re interested in biological emergencies you should check out all the work that has gone into the “Sepsis Kills” campaigns, the pulling together of research, statistics and pharmacology is a wonderful example of EBM working at its best. . What a difference.”. Medical errors are estimated to cause 250,000 deaths per year in the US. Second, it used rigorous methodology to identify deaths that were primarily due to AEMTs. As for this article, just breaking down the number of deaths in the US & looking at causes – the “medical error” number just smelled bad right from the beginning. What distinguished Allen, though, is that he went back and corrected his article. Indeed, I was co-director of a statewide QI effort for breast cancer patients for three years. It doesn’t mean that doctors will allow patients to smoke joints in the psych ward. See GPR55 receptor. Of course, not. Move to Colorado or Oregon or Washington and enjoy your weed, just stop putting a health halo on it. In case it wasn’t clear to everyone else from your stupid YouTube link, you are a horrible person. Annoyingly, I see this number popping up in the most unexpected places, mentioned matter-of-factly, as though it were truth that everyone accepts: Medical errors are NOT the third leading cause of death in the US. ahahahahahahahaha. In 1999-2000, “To Err is Human” estimated that 44,000 to 98,000 deaths per year were due to medical error. Because those with Heart disease were the most likely to go to the emergency room when they noticed breathing problems. It could only have been designed. But unless you are an elderly Dutchman with dementia, there’s no evidence that folic acid has any negative effects. Let’s unpack this a minute. Who could keep track? It’s also in line with my assertions that one major issue with previous studies is that the unspoken underlying assumption behind them is that that if a patient had an AEMT during his hospital course it was the AEMT that killed him. Sources of data included VR and VA data; cancer registries; surveillance data for maternal mortality, injuries, and child death; census and survey data for maternal mortality and injuries; and police records for interpersonal violence and transport injuries. For example, adverse drug events from prescribed opioids leading to death would likely be assigned to the GBD study’s cause of “opioid abuse” (ICD-10 code, F11) or “accidental poisoning” (ICD-10 code, T40) based on the mechanism of death, whereas they are included with medical harm in many other studies based on the association with a prescription. As the authors put it: In the secondary analysis, in which AEMT was listed as the underlying cause of death, 8.9% were due to adverse drug events, 63.6% to surgical and perioperative adverse events, 8.5% to misadventure, 14% to adverse events associated with medical management, 4.5% to adverse events associated with medical or surgical devices, and 0.5% to other AEMT (eTable 6 in the Supplement). Also remember that the term includes unforeseen complications, so if I give penicillin to someone who has never had it, and they have an allergic reaction to it, that is an adverse event, even if I did everything absolutely correctly. As part of that Twitter exchange, Mark pointed me to a recent publication that suggests how. We can do better. As the authors put it: In the secondary analysis, in which AEMT was listed as the underlying cause of death, 8.9% were due to adverse drug events, 63.6% to surgical and perioperative adverse events, 8.5% to misadventure, 14% to adverse events associated with medical management, 4.5% to adverse events associated with medical or surgical devices, and 0.5% to other AEMT (eTable 6 in the Supplement). You are wasting your own time, and likely you are a waste of carbon. @Aarno: You’re completely misreading me. This is about bones and looks like a side effect, like osteoporosis. In addition, it is probable that a significant number of deaths involving AEMT are not captured because of incomplete reporting. “Adverse effects of medical treatment (AEMT) were classified into six categories: (1) adverse drug events, (2) surgical and perioperative adverse events, (3) misadventure (events likely to represent medical error, such as accidental laceration or incorrect dosage), (4) adverse events associated with medical management, (5) adverse events associated with medical or surgical devices, and (6) other.” He is a surgical oncologist at Johns Hopkins and author of Unaccountable, a book about transparency in healthcare. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. First, they found 123,603 deaths (95% UI, 100,856-163,814 deaths) in which AEMT was determined to be the underlying cause of death. As many as 80 percent of medical bills contain at least one error. Pretty pathetic. That's why it's so insidious. Mortality associated with AEMT as either an underlying or contributing cause appeared in 2.8% of all deaths. Respectable physicians speak of the four humours. Why? How’s about you lay out the parts of organic chemistry that don’t rely on petroleum products, Gilbertimmeh? There was some risk involved, which they took. And the big orange bars in the plot are surgical and perioperative AEs. I was more thinking that people are more likely to have an unexpected reaction to antibiotics or snake antivenom than they are to sutures and X-rays. It is estimated that from 5 to 50% of all medical errors in primary care are administrative errors. Previously, research on admitted patients suggested that errors are due to … In addition, it is probable that a significant number of deaths involving AEMT are not captured because of incomplete reporting. There’s obviously a lack of accounting precision in that claim: iatrogenic harm occurs statistically at a given rate for every medical act. Most people do not experience harm from doctors because they do not overuse their services, nor do they seek to blame doctors for everything. We’re not there yet. Seriously? You do not need medical errors for iatrogenic harm to occur: it’s a price to pay to care for those who will benefit from medical care. We can do better. The attempt to quantify how many deaths are attributable to medical error began in earnest in 2000 with the Institute of Medicine’s To Err Is Human, which estimated that the death rate due to medical error was 44,000 to 96,000, roughly one to two times the death rate from automobiles. They’re large and chocolate and something else and very popular. Patient 1 will benefit while patient 2 may suffer. Medical errors pose a serious threat to patient safety and are estimated to account for more than 250,000 deaths in the U.S. each year. If this is your desire it may be advantageous to seek the advice of an attorney to determine the most effective markings (alert bracelets, tattoos, etc) to prevent others from applying aid in case of your incapacitation. It will be diagnosis assisted by AI. That said the system spends enormous amounts of time and money and human effort identifing and investigating the causes of adverse patient outcomes. A little more than 4,000 surgical errors occur each year. Thiamine is available as a prescription and as a supplement with insanely high DV amounts to treat or prevent Wernicke’s Encephalopathy, particulary in alchoholics. My goodness, that certainly touched a nerve. Even when no medical errors are responsible for the choices made. He falls, hits his head so hard he’s allegedly diagnosed with traumatic brain injury but it’s the vaxxeens man! Also not surprisingly, it got basically no press coverage. Renate, he doesn’t care about the answer to his question, unless the answer is “Buy his book on AI.”. For instance, the GBD approach uses ICD-coded death certificates, which have shown varying degrees of reliability in identifying medical harm. More than 1 in 10 patients are harmed in the course of their medical care, and half of those injuries are preventable. First, they found 123,603 deaths (95% UI, 100,856-163,814 deaths) in which AEMT was determined to be the underlying cause of death. Six new surveillance country-years, 106 new census or survey country-years, and 528 new cancer-registry country-years were also added. It’s always a risk analysis. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski. Meanwhile, ambulance-chasing lawyers use this fictitious figure to advertise: Seriously, do they even stop to think how implausible such a figure is? Saying you want to take folic acid out of food is the same as saying you want more babies born without most of their brains. The nurse apologised for erroneously providing a list of medications free of an antibiotic. Second of all, notice that for all age ranges save one, how small a fraction of the total AEMTs were deemed to have been due to misadventure representing probable medical error. I have a link below which gives a simple and clear explanation for what an adverse event is in healthcare. Most countries with medical establishments have non-profit socialized medicine. I think that (4) ” adverse events associated with medical management” is most likely to be things like patients falling out of bed and injuring themselves (a serious problem). But I do wish they would take a closer look at the harms of folic acid added to food when there is a non-toxic, safe at any dose, prescription medication (Deplin – (6s)-5-methyltetrahydofolic acid) folate that could be added instead. Unfortunately, in the three years since its publication, the Makary study has taken on a life of its own, and it’s basically become commonly accepted knowledge that medical errors are the third leading cause of death, even though this estimate is based on highly flawed studies and these numbers are five- to ten-fold greater than the number of people who die in auto collisions every year. Antivaxers aren’t what they used to be these days. I suspect some anal mining has been going on. There was a driverless car that, when there were a bug, stopped in the middle of the road. And what is an adverse event associated with medical management if not a medical error, i.e. I wonder if biological-based emergency admissions are more likely to have adverse events associated with them than mechanical-based emergencies? Sources of data included VR and VA data; cancer registries; surveillance data for maternal mortality, injuries, and child death; census and survey data for maternal mortality and injuries; and police records for interpersonal violence and transport injuries. You can guarantee that during any discussion about human factors in Medicine the statistic that medical errors are the third most common cause of patient death will be thrown up. Yes, false. I’m just saying that there is the bioavailable form out there without all the baggage of serum folic acid build up. Finally some common sense in that “debate”. We won’t do better by spreading myths that medical errors are the third leading cause of death. I would assume that the aforementioned CBD will also be acceptable as a ‘mood stabilizer’ since that is what people used it for before it was designated anti-seizure. the members of the European Parliament voted on a resolution that calls on the Commission on use of cannabis for medicinal purposes and the states member of the European Union to “address the regulatory, financial and cultural barriers” that stunted scientific research on the cannabis and its medical uses. For example, although incorrect dosage of a drug is mentioned in category (3), giving a drug that is inappropriate for the patient, so that the patient suffers an adverse drug event, e.g. No study is. Such groupings are dependent on which ICD code was assigned as the underlying cause. So there’s no chance to change the diet or take supplements? Did I claim smoking pot cures rheumatoid arthritis? Below is a link to the official Australian figures for adverse events occurring in Aust hospitals. But some of us spend a little time to expose damaging altie beliefs as well. Pick one or the other. Mark was referring to the use of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Global Trigger Tool, which is arguably way too sensitive. 2. The authors used a method known as cause-of-death ensemble modeling (CODEm), a standard analytic tool used in GBD cause-specific mortality analyses. Um, no. So good luck with it…, look in the mirror and say that to yourself 500 times and call me in the morning. Somewhat analogously, nosocomial infections (ICD-10 code, Y95) are often coassigned with a pathogen or type of infection when responsible for a death, and, because Y95 does not end up as the single underlying cause on such death certificates, they are not classified in the GBD study as AEMT. Each show includes a section on “health and healing” where the woo-meister recites studies showing how foods and supplements cure various ills- well really, the studies say no such things- more along the lines that people who eat more fruits and vegetables may have less cancer- but he distorts them to fit his own schtick, selling supplements and powdered fruits and vegetables. Just “looking at the cause”? Are you saying that if something that treats some condition that just happens to be in food should be restricted? Errors are said to … Does that mean there’s no problem? Medical errors is one of them. Patients need to review them on a regular basis and correct any errors that creep in. How would we go about estimating it? Mark was referring to the use of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Global Trigger Tool, which is arguably way too sensitive. Or dead. With my very limited knowledge of medicine, I’m not sure if AI will have very much effect. Not surprisingly, its estimates are many-fold lower than the Hopkins study. For instance, über-quack Gary Null teamed with Carolyn Dean, Martin Feldman, Debora Rasio, and Dorothy Smith to write a paper “Death by Medicine,” which estimated that the total number of iatrogenic deaths is nearly 800,000 a year, which would be the number one cause of death, if true and nearly one-third of all deaths in the US. (I happen to think that it is, even if it might have somewhat underestimated AEMTs.) “Inhibiting bone resorbtion” is a remedy for osteoporosis. And the more they use them, the more they end up complaining. Give me algorithms and subfields. Medicine should be medicine, not food. For 5,180 deaths in the most recent year, that means 108,780 deaths had an AEMT as a contributing or primary cause that year, which is in line with the IOM estimates. @Aarno: Did I claim that cannabis cures everything? Mistakes will be made. complications and not someone doing something that they shouldn’t. Somewhat analogously, nosocomial infections (ICD-10 code, Y95) are often coassigned with a pathogen or type of infection when responsible for a death, and, because Y95 does not end up as the single underlying cause on such death certificates, they are not classified in the GBD study as AEMT. For example, and I forget where I saw it, there was an AI trained to spot serious Pneumonia. If it’s medicine, why would it make sense that “CBD would be treated like bonbons”? Contributors and sources: MM is the developer of the operating room checklist, the precursor to the WHO surgery checklist. Why is it that when something is shown to be ‘medicinal’ diagnostic errors contribute to approximately 10% of patient deaths. It will be diagnosis assisted by AI. It’s even worse than that, though. In Kuwait, there is a paucity literature detailing the causes, forms, and risks of medical errors in their state-funded healthcare facilities.
