80% of Medication Mayhem Is Preventable!

80% of Medication Mayhem Is Preventable!
                                    That's a new finding by doctors in Sweden, who found that 80% of "adverse events" from taking medications could have been prevented — if the doctor had been more attentive to making sure the drug was correctly prescribed and to monitoring the patient once they started taking the drug.
                                    And in a similar recent study, researchers from the University of Pittsburgh found that 90% of adverse drug reactions were potentially preventable.
