Medical errors causes more than 250,000 deaths annually

Each year, many Connecticut patients suffer from medical mistakes. Medical errors are prevalent in hospitals and doctors' offices across the U.S. and lead to many deaths. A study has revealed that the problem is even more pervasive than was previously thought.

Surgery for early prostate cancer not needed, study says

Connecticut men who have been diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer may be interested to learn that a long-term study concluded that prostate cancer surgery does not offer any significant benefits for those who have localized tumors. In fact, those who had prostate cancer surgery were more likely to suffer complications without the benefit of living longer than those who did not have the surgery.

Medication errors rising in the United States

Americans call poison control services once every 21 seconds because of medication errors. That was one of the findings of a study conducted by two groups at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Ohio. Researchers looked at calls related to medication errors, some of which took place in Connecticut, over a period of 13 years that resulted in significant medical outcomes.

Facts about ovarian cancer

Connecticut women who have a family history of ovarian cancer may be concerned that they are likely to get it as well, but heredity is only a factor in 10 percent of cases. There are a number of other significant risk factors that include diabetes, obesity and smoking. Despite a flurry of lawsuits, however, there is not a proven link between ovarian cancer and talcum powder.
