440,000 patients die every year from preventable medical errors. This cost our country billions of dollars every year and causes untold stress and heartache on our American families. It has been reported that wrong site, wrong surgery, wrong patient “never events” are happening in United States hospitals at the rate of about 40 times per week. Our medical care providers in many instances do great, life saving work. However, as the statistics show, there is room for improvement in many facilities. When you hear complaints about the number of medical negligence lawsuits, remember the facts above. Also, note that medical negligence lawsuits amount to just one-half of one percent of all health care costs according to the Congressional Budget Office.
