Medical errors cause some 250,000 deaths annually, researchers from Johns Hopkins University estimate in a study published Tuesday. Doctorsa€™ mistakes kill some 250,000 Americans a year, a public health menace that flies under the radar because federal officials dona€™t list a€?medical errora€? as a cause of death, a new study says. Common doctor errors include surgical mistakes and giving the wrong medication or improper dosages. Because CDCa€™s mortality statistics do not include medical error, when such screw-ups lead to fatalities, the cause of death is listed as whatever condition was troubling the patient when treatment started. The study gives an example of a woman who came in for a heart surgery, and died from complications after a needle grazed her liver.
The researchers -- who crunched eight yearsa€™ worth of medical death rate data -- calculated that such errors kill 250,454 Americans on average every year -- more than respiratory disease and diabetes combined. Numbers like that demand attention a€” which can only come from proper record keeping, said the researchers.
According to the study, the main ingredient in these over-the-counter medications is safe in small doses, but Bilsky explained that when taken in large doses the drug can produce a euphoric high and have fatal consequences. The Cure debuted two new songs during their tour kick off in New Orleans Tuesday night, ringing in the launch of their first major North American trek in eight years.

Healthcare professionals are growing concerned about the amount of expired prescription medications in our medicine chests. The Horizon Health Network is asking Saint John-area residents to drop off their unused and expired medication on Saturday. The health authority and the Saint John Police Force will have a mobile unit set up at Harbour Station as part of National Prescription Drug Drop-Off Day, accepting old medications for disposal.
Healthcare professionals say the general rule is to safely dispose of drugs collecting dust in your medicine chest.

Even when medications are thrown out, many people aren't taking the right precautions, Roberts told Information Morning Saint John. The mobile unit will be set up in the east parking lot of Harbour Station, at the foot of Sewell Street.
Roberts asks that people remove any identifying information from their medications before dropping them off. Last year, approximately 60,000 units, or individual pills, were dropped off in Saint John during the national blitz.
As of May 1, 2016, new Canadian Pari-Mutuel Agency (CPMA) testing guidelines are being applied to the analysis of Equine Canada (EC) equine samples by the official laboratory (Maxxam). Until August 1, 2016, in recognition of the need to allow for the best compliance and understanding of the new standards, warnings will be issued to any person responsible (PR) for a sample testing positive under the new rules that would have been negative under the old 2011 guidelines.

A Minnesota doctor saw Prince twice in the month before his death - including the day before he died - and prescribed him medication, according to a search warrant.
Investigators interviewed Schulenberg and searched a suburban Minneapolis hospital where he worked. Schulenberg's attorney, Amy Conners, declined to comment late Tuesday, citing patient confidentiality.
A law enforcement official has told The Associated Press that investigators are looking into whether Prince died from an overdose and whether a doctor was prescribing him drugs in the weeks before his death. On Tuesday, a sheriff's car and about a dozen unmarked vehicles entered the gates of Paisley Park. Kamerud declined to answer questions about the warrant that names Schulenberg, saying it was supposed to be sealed. The warrant was carried out last Thursday at North Memorial Medical Center in the Minneapolis suburb of Robbinsdale. Lesa Bader, a spokeswoman for North Memorial Medical Center, said Schulenberg was a primary care physician at its Minnetonka clinic but that he no longer works for the health care system. Schulenberg's April 7 treatment of Prince came the day he canceled shows in Atlanta citing illness.
Schulenberg told a detective that he was dropping off some results of tests that had been performed on Prince when he came upon the death scene, according to the warrant.

The warrant also notes an interview with Kirk Anthony Johnson, a Paisley Park staff member and sometime drummer for Prince, who told another detective that Prince had visited the Highway 212 Medical Center not far from Paisley Park for "an illness" in 2014 or 2015.
Carver County previously released a log of 911 calls to Paisley Park that showed a 53-year-old man, apparently dehydrated, taken to Highway 212 Medical Center in 2013. The people who found Prince dead included Kornfeld's son, Andrew Kornfeld, who had taken a redeye flight the night of April 20 but did not meet with Prince before his death. According to the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice website, Schulenberg has not been subjected to any disciplinary or corrective action in Minnesota or other states. The Brit rock vets also performed “All I Want,” a 1987 entry from their breakout seventh record, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, for the first time in 30 years, plus a rare rendition of “Burn” from 1994’s The Crow soundtrack. We'll take your medications, just hand them to us [and] we will dispose of it safely," said Roberts. Michael Todd Schulenberg treated Prince on April 7 and April 20, and he prescribed medications for the musician, according to the warrant, which was obtained Tuesday by at least two news outlets before authorities moved to ensure it was sealed. The law enforcement official has been briefed on the investigation and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. Kamerud also said that after the contents were made public, he contacted a court administrator to ensure the warrant was sealed. Schulenberg also told the detective that he had prescribed Prince "medications" with the prescription to be filled at a Walgreen's.
State law requires the board to post felonies and gross misdemeanors that happened after July 1, 2013, in any state. Howard Kornfeld told reporters that Prince's representatives had contacted Kornfeld seeking help a day before the superstar was found dead on April 21. No one answered the door at the doctor's home on Tuesday and phone messages left for him weren't returned.
A hospital spokeswoman said earlier she couldn't provide any information on patients due to privacy laws.
The law enforcement official who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity said Prince was found unconscious on the plane and that first responders gave him a shot of Narcan, which is used in suspected opioid overdoses.
The attorney refused to identify the Minnesota doctor, and it's not clear whether the physician was Schulenberg.
