More dangerous than an Armed Hillbilly.

Damn it, I think I am going to have to subscribe to any rag. Again a newspaper fell in my hands and found something interesting. According the an article in the Wall Street Journal, doctors and hospitals are killing people at an alarming rate.

Errors made by doctors, nurses and other medical caregivers cause 44,000 to 98,000 deaths a year. Hospital infections, many considered preventable, take another 100,000 lives. And mistakes involving medications injure 1.3 million patients annually in the U.S., according to the Food and Drug Administration.

Holy crap! I knew it was bad, but this is just Halloween/Freddy Kruger/ Jason Vorhees/ Mother In Law Staying For The Summer scary.  Next doctor that tries to tell me how dangerous is for me to have guns, I might have to ask him about how these little statistics here.

At the end of the day, the stethoscope turned out to be more dangerous than a gun.

  1. I’d have to dig up who it was, but a gun blogger crunched the numbers and found that doctors were more likely to kill you than CCW holders. It wasn’t a small lead, either… more like 10-15 *times* more likely.
