Perhaps I should rest my case with the following link from the Washington Post.www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2011/02/24/AR2011022402599.html?wprss=rss_metro
So it appears that not all hospitals have the same standards of care, but we all knew that even without being treated for any illness.
Noting specific about
prostate surgery in the Washington Post article, but surgical bleeding was listed. It was a notorious issue in prostate surgery before the modern era of urological advances in medicine. It could adversely determine the outcome of an operation both by blood loss and failure to remove the entire prostate during the procedure.
Hoping you all pick good hospitals when considering treatments....
