Are Doctors Still Accidentally Killing Their Patients?


While reading the life of Beethoven, I saw that there was controversy regarding his death. Some assert that he was accidentally poisoned to death due to excessive doses of lead-based treatments prescribed by his doctor. Even today, we watch advertisements regarding the many dangerous side effects of drugs. Sometimes this is only discovered after many individuals either become extremely ill or die. Are doctors still accidentally killing their patients?

    Considering that many put their lives into the hands of doctors, it should be standard procedures to run test and perhaps give patients samples to insure safety.
