Medical Negligence: A Serious Problem
The Institute of Medicine released an unbelievable report back in 1999 regarding negligence in the United States. The IOM report shows that 98,000 preventable deaths are due to medical errors. This report does not include the hundred of thousand victims who suffered injuries. It is suggested by professionals that medical negligence is more common than you think because many cases are not reported. Doctors are hesitating to admit to their mistakes and victims sometimes are not aware there was a mistake done. If a patient thinks there was a mistake, be sure to report the incident and speak to a lawyer.
