Serious injuries due to medical negligence and malpractice have become a quiet, but disturbing epidemic in this country. As many as 195,000 people could be dying each year in American hospitals because of easily preventable errors, according to a study by HealthGrades, Inc. Other organizations put the death toll due medical negligence at closer to 100,000 a year.
No matter which numbers you choose, the fact remains that too many people are being seriously injured or killed by the very people and organizations they trust to help restore their health.
