Death from Medical Malpractice
A report in the American Medical Association’s journal indicates that Institute of Medicine’s estimates are significantly lower than what the reality is and they report that the number of deaths per year is closer to approximately 284,000.
The following are common reasons why people die from medical malpractice that could have easily been prevented were it not for the negligence of one or more person:
- Negative effects of medications
- Infections that start while a patient is in the hospital
- Non-medical errors in hospitals
- Medical errors and mistakes
- Unnecessary surgery
It is horribly wrong when someone loses their life or becomes seriously injured or ill because of a healthcare or hospital’s negligence.
