According to the Journal of Patient Safety, “between 210,000 and 440,000 patients each year who go to the hospital for care suffer some type of preventable harm that contributes to their death”. That makes medical errors the third-leading cause of death in America, behind heart disease and cancer.
About 75,000 patients with healthcare-associated infections died during their hospitalizations. One third of hospitalized patients are harmed during their stay. In a recent study, three in ten patients said they had experience with a medical error, either personally or through a close friend or family member. Twenty-one percent reported having been misdiagnosed by a physician.
