Leah Bindfer, Huffington Post - Healthcare in the United States is not safe. One in four patients admitted to a hospital will suffer some form of unintended harm, one in six will get an infection and about 500 a day will die of a preventable error. Healthcare is considered the most dangerous occupation - more dangerous than coal mining or building skyscrapers. One sector worthy of particular attention is nuclear power, an industry where — thank heavens — safety is king.
