Hospital Error

Hospital Error Causes More than 440,000 Deaths Annually

Medical errors may now be the third leading cause of death in the U.S., behind heart disease and cancer. Some studies suggest that up to 33 percent of hospital admissions may result in harm to a patient. Of these, as many as 440,000 patients may die annually.

Unfortunately, the actual numbers may be even higher. No one knows the exact number of patients who should have received treatment and didn’t.

Or whose medical records omitted details of oversight. Or whose inaccurate diagnostic errors weren’t reported.

What’s particularly disturbing is that these individuals are not dying from the illnesses that caused them to seek hospital care in the first place. It is what happened to them after they entered the hospital that proved to be life threatening.
