A New Study is Released on the Epidemic of Hospital Malpractice

It's reported that there are possibly as many as 440,000 deaths per year associated with malpractice in hospitals, four times as many as was previously thought.

A recent study concludes that the epidemic of patients getting hurt in hospitals must be taken more seriously if it is to be reduced. Keeping patients informed and involved while being cared for in the hospital during hospital care, getting more feedback from the patients about their actual harms, accountability for harm, and "intentional correction of root causes of harm" are necessary in the hospital care system.
