It's Not Just You – Medical Errors Are A Problem

According to a recent article in The Washington Post, over 250,000 Americans die every year as a result of preventable medical mistakes (wrongful death). According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, this makes medical errors the third leading cause of death in the United States. Only heart disease and cancer kill more Americans. Most malpractice is committed by a small number of health care providers. The National Practitioner Data Bank states that 5 percent of doctors are responsible for 54 percent of malpractice payments.

What Causes Medical Or Hospital Malpractice?

Medical errors are caused by a number of factors, including the failure of health care providers to give their full time and attention to patients, and their failure to pay attention to patients' signs and symptoms. They are caused by not asking the right questions and not listening to patients' answers. They are caused by health care providers who don't listen when patients and their families tell them that something is wrong. They are caused by the failure to order appropriate tests, the failure to perform adequate examinations, misinterpreting test results, and the failure to refer patients to specialists in a timely manner. In short, they are caused by incompetence and a lack of caring.
