As per the most detailed study ever being taken out in the UK in regard to deaths taking place in the NHS, it was revealed that common mistakes have allegedly taken the lives of 13% patients. The research was being carried out by a group of researchers from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
The study, being led by Helen Hogan, said that the basic errors were the main cause of deaths taking place across the NHS in the country. About 12,000 patients have lost lives allegedly just because of the basic errors being committed by doctors and nurses.
Hogan said, “We found medical staff was not doing the basics well enough – monitoring blood pressure and kidney function, for example. They were also not assessing patients holistically early enough”.
In order to reach at the above given conclusion, the study researchers assessed 1,000 deaths that took place in 10 different NHS trusts in 2009. After assessing the reports, Hogan said that it is a time when doctors should learn from their mistakes. They should make each and every effort, by which they can save the lives of their patients rather than putting them at risk.
The study, which has been published in the BMJ Quality and Safety, suggests that the authorities concerned should assess the hospital after regular visits.
