How you can avoid being one of the 100,000 people who will die this year due to a preventable medical mistake in their doctor's office or hospital.
It’s not that our nation’s doctors and nurses are incompetent. Quite the contrary, they are the very best in the world and try extremely hard for perfection. But high tech medicine is complex and dangerous.
So complex that in the time it takes you to read this letter, nine patients will die due to preventable mistakes. The safety statistics of our health care system are frightening…
- Almost 100,000 patients will die this year due to a preventable medical error – that’s almost 1600 deaths per week or 228 deaths per day
- Two million patients will get an infection given to them by their health care provider or hospital - 90,000 of them will die from that infection
- 1.5 million patients will be hurt by a medication mistake – 7,000 of those patients will die
- One in every five patients will be harmed in some way by medication errors
- Four million people will have to go to the doctor or hospital because of a medication mistake
Eight jumbo jets, fully loaded with people, would have to crash every week to kill the same number of passengers as the number of patients that are accidentally killed every week in our health care system!
Think about it. If 8 jumbo jets full of passengers crashed every week would you ever get on an airplane again? Yet that is how many patients accidentally die every week in our health care system. And people still blindly go to the doctor’s office or hospital without knowing the potential danger and what they can do to reduce the risk. You don’t have to put yourself and your family at risk.
