According to the American Association for Justice, preventable medical errors are the sixth most common killer in America. As many as 98,000 people die each year from preventable medical errors and thousands more are injured. Shockingly, “never” events such as operating on the wrong patient, wrong site or wrong side still routinely occur in hospitals around the country. In addition, it is estimated that 18% of hospital patients are injured in the course of their care, many of them fatally.
