The Cold Hard Facts of Iatrogenic infections
What is an Iatrogenic infection, and how on earth can a physician prescribe your doom by mistake? Well it is easier than most American's think it is, and the number of deaths per year continually grow higher every year. According to one online medical investigation company, they estimated the death rate to be in between 120,000 and 199,000 deaths each year, as a direct result of medical errors such as; Pseudo-membranous Colitis. That death rate number is 5x's higher than the other leading cause of accidental deaths in the United States, which are automobile accidents at an estimated 43,649 number of deaths per year. It is also estimated that an additional $77 billion dollars in extra costs will be billed as a direct result of doctor prescribed medical errors in outpatient settings alone. That dollar number does not include major hospitals and inpatient care. That number only reflects clinical and outpatient medical costs.
$77 billion in extra costs, according to yourmedicaldetective.com
One of the Many Deadly Iatrogenic Diseases
In layman terms Iatrogenic Disease simply means "physician originated disease." A nosocomial infection is a medical term used when describing a sickness or condition that is considered to be "hospital originated." Therefore, an Iatrogenic infection is essentially, an infection caused by a physician, and nosocomial condition caused by medical equipment or care given while staying there as an inpatient. In the eyes and directives of the medical community and the health insurance racket- there is a big difference between the two types of disease. However, what matters here is not the terms they use but the deaths they cause.
One such condition affected my family the eve before December 24th, 2013 when a Pseudo-membranous Colitis infection, caused by an explosive growth of Clostridium difficile bacterium or C-Diff in the large colon. Per the doctor's order and as the direct ingestion of these doctor prescribed antibiotics, (taken by my father in-law earlier that week) his life was taken that day at 4:30pm. The C-Diff bacterial infection of the large colon, occurs when certain prescribed medications (antibiotics) are taken by unsuspecting patients, and these antibiotic inadvertently end up killing too many of the other eugenic bacteria, also living in the large colon. As they say, "Too much of a good thing is bad," these otherwise harmful clostridium difficile bacterium, which lives in the digestive fluids of all humans, eventually caused severe (extremely foul smelling) diarrhea and complex dehydration. After four days of intensive care, IV fluids pushing highly complex antibiotics through his veins, and Lester moaning in unbearable pain from dehydration (even after the morphine was administered), the disease killed my elderly father in-law two days before Christmas. Like other known colitis type diseases, such as Ebola, his family had to wear gloves and protective gear in order to keep us from contracting this horrific infection. An infection - caused by his physician.
