The App That Hospitals Don’t Want You to Know About

The Patient’s Hospital Safety Guide app was developed by APRA in co-operation with leading medical professionals to help patients protect themselves from being harmed by a medical error while being treated in a hospital, the 3rd leading cause of death.

Why a Hospital Safety Guide is Needed by Patients

While many patients receive excellent care and are healed without incident, errors in hospitals have increased significantly during the pandemic. Most hospital patients don’t realize they’re at risk of being injured or even killed by something that has nothing to do with why they’re in the hospital, or that more than half of the cases occur during elective surgery or procedures, rather than emergency or urgent care.

Patients also don’t realize that errors happen at all hospitals every day, resulting in between 10,000 and 20,000 incidents of harm daily, and millions of injuries, many permanent, plus up to 440,000 deaths a year, many after discharge.

Since most hospitals are understaffed nurses are overworked and that’s when errors often happen so patients need to protect themselves.

Why Hospitals Don’t Want You to Know About This App

Hospitals don’t want their patients to know that a hospital safety guide is needed or that up to one in three admitted patients is harmed because it’s not good for business and puts them at risk of lawsuits. That’s why they never publicly report their preventable deaths and injuries, and most hospital patients and their families are never told when a preventable error happens. Another thing that hospitals don’t want patients to know is that they earn money when they treat injuries caused by medical errors. That’s a serious conflict of interest.

This App Saves Lives

Fortunately, many errors can be caught or prevented by the patient, a family member, or advocate, using the Patient’s Hospital Safety Guide app.

The app includes:

  • how and when hospital errors happen
  • how to stop many errors 
  • how to know when an error has been made
  • what to do if an error has been made
  • what to do if the patient has been harmed
  • how to know if the patient is in distress and needs immediate help

.… and much more.

The app was developed for the layman so it’s easy to understand and use.

Lifesaving information!

Years ago my family lost a loved one in the hospital due to carelessness on the part of the staff. Only three years old, this child was given an accidental overdose of anesthesia. If we had had this app and this information, possibly we could have avoided this tragedy. Especially in these times when hospitals are overly crowded, this advice is indispensable.

– Thankful in OK.
