(NaturalNews) According to the HealthGrades 2011 Healthcare Consumerism and Hospital Quality in America Report, in the United States, the rate of hospital-related medical harm is estimated to be over 40,000 people - every day. In fact, in the United States alone, over 2 million people (each year) are victimized by hospital-derived infections and over 100,000 people die as a result.

Bottom line - to ensure a safe hospital stay - you must know your rights and responsibilities.

General anesthesia has life-threatening consequences. According to Dr. Barry Friedberg, a board certified anesthesiologist, "a lot of people wake up from surgery not quite the same person they were before they went under because of the over use of anesthetic drugs." On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, find out what you must know before getting anesthesia, how to speed up recovery time plus much more.

Most doctors fail to warn patients about common hospital dangers

According to the Health Grades report, analyzing about 40 million Medicare patient records - from 2007 to 2009 - revealed that 1 in 9 patients developed hospital-acquired infections. Sadly, most of these infections are completely avoidable by simply having the doctors (and nurses) wash their hands. Of course, if hospitals truly understood how to boost the immune system, we could have every patient consume sufficient quantities of immune protective substances like, vitamin C and D.

Let's not forget the danger of hospital food. This highly-processed - often microwaved to death - junk food is completely devoid of nutrients. If you're looking to improve the quality of your hospital stay - ask for a 'vegetarian' meal. Naturally, if you want to continue taking nutritional supplements (a good idea) - be sure to get a note from your primary care physician, to avoid any unnecessary arguments.

On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and naturopath Elaine Wilkes talk about patient rights and what you need to know - before a hospital stay - to ensure a safe return home.

The most powerful person inside a hospital

Although this may seem unimportant to the casual reader - the answer is you, not the doctor. Remember, even if you 'signed a form' at admission - this does not surrender your right to say 'no', any time you feel like it. If you are unable to speak for yourself - due to incapacitation - the next most powerful person is the spouse or child of the patient. To ensure a safe outcome in hospitals, I highly recommend the book, Hospitals and Health: Your Orthomolecular Guide to a Shorter, Safer Hospital Stay - written by Abram Hoffer, MD, Ph.D, Andrew W. Saul, Ph.D., and Steve Hickey, Ph.D.

The unavoidable truth is that most people - at some point in their lives - will spend time in a hospital. But, those same people need to realize the inherent dangers before it's too late. Don't get me wrong - many hospitalizations are necessary for life-threatening emergencies or complex surgical procedures. But, at the same time, it's a statistical fact that hospitals are one of the most dangerous places on Earth.

Fortunately, with the right knowledge, you can minimizing your risk of injury; speed up recovery time and reduce your need for toxic medications. Our next program will arm you with lifesaving information.

This week's guest: Elaine Wilkes, Ph.D., N.C., M.A - a self-proclaimed "learning addict"


Get practical, lifesaving advice on how to stay healthy in (and out) of the hospital - Sun. Apr. 20


Elaine Wilkes, Ph.D., N.C., M.A., LEED, ultimately discovered that the answers to most of life's questions are ingeniously revealed in nature. Elaine combines her Ph.D. in naturopathy (alternative medicine), a master's degree in psychology, her work as a nutritionist, and a LEED? (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accreditation to speak on integrating your mind/body/soul environment connection with Nature's genius.

Having had two family members hospitalized, Elaine realized the need for her latest book, 101 Awesome Things to Do for Someone Who's Sick - which reveals many simple ways to brighten someone's day, when they need it the most. Elaine skillfully merges her acting background with her vast knowledge, enthusiasm, and imaginative insights to give uplifting and inspiring presentations.

Speed up your recovery time with lifesaving strategies. On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Elaine Wilkes will talk about what you need to know before any surgical procedure; how to best talk to your doctor before (and during) hospitalization plus many other practical ways to ensure a safe, healthy hospital stay.
