AAFP President John Cullen, MD, shared tips in a MarketWatch article on ways patients can protect themselves against medical errors. In the article, “In a review of 337,000 patient cases, this was the No. 1 most common preventable medical error,” Dr. Cullen cites content from familydoctor.org and encourages patients to make sure they fully understand any procedure or medication their doctor is recommending and not to assume every health care professional has access to all of their health care information.
