Medical Errors and Unnecessary Infection
It’s the third leading cause of death. Only heart disease and cancer kill more Americans. It is a problem that has not received the attention it deserves.
Just 15 years ago, research from the Institute of Medicine indicated that over 98,000 deaths resulted from preventable errors. But experts state that those numbers are low.
The Journal of Patient Safety published a report in 2014, which concluded that as many as 440,000 people die from preventable errors in hospitals. Thousands more die for errors outside the hospital, such as misdiagnosis or wrong medications.
