Who knew going to the doctor or the hospital could be so dangerous? Sure there are a lot of sick people there so you could catch some weird disease but that’s not the big problem. It’s MEDICAL ERRORS. I was shocked when I heard the statistic that medical errors are the third biggest killer in the U.S. behind cancer and heart disease. Here to discuss this is my guest, Leslie Michelson who has been working hard to create a “culture of safety” in medicine and he needs all of us to help. He is the founder and chairman of Private Health Management, former CEO of the Prostate Cancer Foundation – and he is author of The Patients Playbook.
Since all of us will be a patient in the hospital at some point – this is essential for you to hear.
Also on the podcast, you’ll learn about The 40% Rule. It’s what Navy Seals use to be mentally tough – and you can use it as well.
How organized are you? If you could use a little help, I’ve got just the person. Sue Crum spends her life helping people get more organized though her coaching and consulting as well as speaking. She is also author of the book Clear Your Clutter and discusses simple strategies to help you get more organized – and she has some freebies to give you as well.
Finally, if you send text messages, you need to understand what adding punctuation does to change the meaning of what you are saying. It’s interesting – and it only applies to text messages. If you are a texter, this can keep you out of trouble.
