A good time to go to the hospital

There’s never a good time to have to go to the hospital but there are worse times to go – like on a weekend. A review of hospital data shows evidence that patients admitted to hospital at weekends have higher mortality than those admitted on weekdays. How much greater? Up to 17% greater chance of dying… And this wasn’t a piddly little study of one dinky hospital but rather a meta-analysis covering over 55 million patient admissions. One study conclusion was that there is a poorer quality of care in hospital on the weekend. Afternoon surgery brings any day of the week brings a whopping 21% increased risk of death compared with surgery at other times of day and weekend surgery in general brings a 22% increased risk of death compared with surgery on weekdays. Moral of this story: Avoid hospitals! You can die there.

Hospitals are a place to die in - stay away from them  if at all possible!
