We depend greatly on the healthcare industry to keep us safe and to provide correct and precise medical care and advice. But sometimes, hospitals, healthcare providers and pharmacists do make mistakes, and innocent children and adults suffer.
According to the National Academy of Medicine, each year more people die from medical errors than from motor vehicle accidents (43,458), breast cancer (42,297), or AIDS (16,516). Annually, researchers feel that as many as 180,000 people fall victim to the mistakes of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, hospital staff and other healthcare professionals resulting in devastating injuries, permanent disabilities and death.
