Doctor's Orders: Inside Advice For Safe Care, Part 2

This is the second of a three-post series looking at some expert recommendations for patients on safely navigating America's healthcare realities. While some medical mistakes will always occur, these tips can help patients take more control over their care.

So without further ado, here are two more anti-medical malpractice tips.

3. Despite much of the orientation that exists in Ohio hospitals and clinics, patients need to be aware that the answer to a tricky care question is not necessarily "more laboratory tests." Experts believe that aggressive laboratory tests do very little to prevent misdiagnosis errors-but at the same time, they can cause unnecessary harm (like exposure too much radiation).

4. Patients should listen to their feelings. Medical appointments are opportunities for patients to get as much information as they need from doctors and other professionals-if something feels wrong or emotionally uncomfortable, patients might want to think about why that is.

Check back later for our final post in this series.
