Is Medical Malpractice Common?
John Hopkins University School of Medicine estimated that medical errors resulting in wrongful death are the third leading cause of death (250,000) annually in the United States (1). With 37 million admissions in the United States each year, this equates to approximately 15 million harm events annually – or 40,000 incidents of harm in U.S. hospitals every day (2).
