Play it, Jen

Every good movie has a piano player somewhere in the background--
sometimes seen, usually unseen.
Seldom really noticed.
The feeling, the very soul of a scene, is created by that person tinkering at the keys.
It has been said, "All the world's a stage."
Well then...Play it, Jen.

Drug Mistakes Injure 1.5 Million in US Every Year

Drug Mistakes Injure 1.5 Million in US Every Year: "WASHINGTON (Reuters) Jul 20 - Medication errors hurt 1.5 million people every year in the United States and cost at least $3.5 billion, according to a report issued on Thursday.
If hospitals, clinics and other providers owned up to each and every mistake, it would help to keep track of and eventually reduce them, and systems such as electronic prescribing would also help, the Institute of Medicine report said.
'Medication errors are among the most common medical errors, harming at least 1.5 million people every year,' the Institute said in a statement.
Such mistakes kill at least 7,000 people a year, according to the Institute, an independent, non-profit organization that advises the federal government on health issues.
'The extra medical costs of treating drug-related injuries occurring in hospitals alone conservatively amount to $3.5 billion a year, and this estimate does not take into account lost wages and productivity or additional health care costs,' the institute added."
