Medical Study shows 75% of hospital tests are not followed up on

A recently published article in BMJ Quality and Safety journal has uncovered frightening statistics regarding the percent of tests that are followed up on in hospitals.

According to the journal which analyzed 12 international studies, up to 75% of tests performed on emergency care patients are not followed up on.  This lack of diligence can have serious and dramatic repercussions on patients such as "delayed or missed diagnoses and even death."
