"Never events" happen way more often than anyone will admit

Those in the medical profession describe some mistakes as "never events" despite the fact that they occur far more often than patients realize.

Oftentimes, after a patient undergoes a surgical procedure or suffers some type of debilitating medical emergency such as a stroke, the individual might be encouraged to recooperate at a rehabilitation hospital.
