Audio PSA: Tips to Prevent Medical Errors
Narrator: Here’s another health tip from
AHRQ, the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
If you’re scheduled
for a hospital stay, here are some ways to reduce your risk of medical errors.
Speak up if you have questions or concerns. Don’t assume that your care team has
all the information they need about you. When you’re leaving the hospital, get a
plan for what you should do at home including what medicines to take and when
you need a follow-up visit with your regular clinician.
