Letting patient wander and die in hospital medical malpractice?

Appleton, Wisconsin residents may have been among those following the story of a 57-year-old woman who checked into a San Francisco hospital for a bladder infection and then vanished. The woman's body was found after 18 days in a little-used stairwell at the hospital, which left her family and friends angrily wondering if negligence tantamount to medical malpractice was to blame in her death.

The worst month, day and hour to have surgery

People in Wisconsin contemplating going in for a surgery might be interested to hear that there are certain months, days, and times when their risk of encountering medical errors may be higher. Traditionally, people used to plan surgeries around lunar cycles, and while that is not necessarily how surgeries are planned nowadays, the calendar may still play a part in the worst times to have surgeries.
