Combating The Problem Of Medical Malpractice

The National Academy of Sciences estimates that 98,000 people die from medical errors in hospitals every year. This number is greater than the number of auto accidents. An additional 7,000 deaths are attributable to medication errors. This number is greater than the sum total of workers killed on the job.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is real. People are being catastrophically hurt while under medical care, and the errors made are significant. They include attempting procedures the provider is not trained for, operating on the wrong limb or even the wrong patient, and sealing foreign objects into the surgical patient.

Hospitals and providers who fail to properly diagnose and treat, or whose level of care in any way constitutes medical malpractice, must be held to account in order to compensate victims and surviving family members.
