A recently concluded study by researchers at Johns Hopkins Medical Center reveals that medical errors are one of the leading causes of death in this country, third only to heart disease and cancer. It is estimated that as many as 250,000 Americans die each year as a result of medical errors performed by physicians, hospitals and nursing care practitioners. The leading causes of medical errors are medical mistakes, ranging from unrecognized surgical complications to the inappropriate administration of prescription drugs to patients.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, medical error estimates do not take into consideration the many medical mistakes committed by the healthcare industry, including diagnostic errors that are not recorded in death certificate data. CDC’s mortality statistics count only the underlying causes of death. Even if the doctor or medical examiner lists a medical error on the death certificate, the condition that led a person to seek treatment is the only statistic counted.
The question then remains, that if the 3rd leading cause of death in this country is a medical mistake made during the treatment of a patient, how many additional patients are adversely affected by a medical error committed by a hospital, physician or nursing care practitioner that goes unaccounted for? This is why hiring an experienced Jacksonville Medical Malpractice Attorney is so important to helping you and your family identify when a medical mistake has been committed.
