When bad medicine hurts good people...
“At its best, health care in the United States is superb. Unfortunately, it is often not at its best. Problems in health care quality are serious and extensive; they occur in all delivery systems and financing mechanisms. Americans bear a great burden of harm because of these problems, a burden that is measured in lost lives, reduced functioning, and wasted resources. Collectively, these problems call for urgent action.” Page 11 of “Statement on Quality of [Medical] Care,” p. 11 (Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Science). In fact, the Institute of Medicine estimates that between 44,000 and 98,000 people die as a result of medical errors each year in the United States. Even more patients suffer non-fatal injuries every year as a result of medical errors, medical negligence, or medical malpractice.
