440,000 People Die from Medical Errors in Hospitals Every Year

I’ve been doing this long enough that articles like this one from Consumer Reports don’t surprise me anymore.

The number of deaths from preventable medical errors is astonishing. That’s why we do what we do. Quite frankly, we all want better medical care in this country. One small way to go about it is by holding physicians responsible for their medical malpractice. Hopefully the number of people killed will start to drop.
