Medical Errors Third Leading Cause of Death in United States
Researchers at Johns Hopkins estimate that up to 251,000 patients die each year in the United States due to medical errors. That is nearly 700 patients each day, making medical errors the third leading cause of death in the country. The types of errors range from bad doctoring to system breakdowns when patients are handed off from one department to another.
Dr. Martin Makary, the lead investigator of the study, points out that hospitals underreport preventable deaths, in part because hospitals do not have the resources to adequately investigate the cause of each death and otherwise have little or no obligation or incentive to report such deaths.
Dr. Makary notes that when an airplane crashes there is a full-fledged investigation that is publicized and that serves as a learning tool to avoid the same mistakes in the future. Our healthcare system and the broader community could benefit from a similar approach to reduce the incidence of preventable hospital deaths.
Dr. Makary's study, "Medical Error--The third leading cause of death in the US," is published in the May 3, 2016 edition of BMJ, formerly known as the British Medical Journal.
Protecting Your Family and Community
When bad things happen in the hospital, few healthcare providers own up to their errors and it may be best to consult with a lawyer to explore your options.
Our legal system seeks to protect families and improve the quality of healthcare in the community by holding negligent healthcare providers responsible for the harm they cause. This assures that the financial responsiblity for the harmed caused is shifted from innocent parties (i.e., the patient, health insurers and taxpayers) to the wrongdoer, and that healthcare providers are motivated not to repeat their mistakes in the future.
