Medical Errors

Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States. Medical errors in hospitals and other health-care facilities are incredibly common and is a leading cause of death behind heart disease and cancer – claiming 251,000 lives every year.  Additionally, a study published by Harvard University found that more than one million people suffer non-fatal injuries each year as a result of negligent mistakes made by doctors, anesthesiologists, residents, nurses, technicians, and malfunctioning medical devices.  Medical malpractice can occur in a hospital, a doctor’s office, a nursing home, or other health facilities.  Whether it’s failure to timely diagnose a medical condition, inattention to symptoms, incorrectly prescribed medication, or operational error, the results can be catastrophic.
