Medical Malpractice

photo More than 400,000 deaths per year are caused by preventable harm to patients in hospitals. The statistic means that hospital negligence causes death to the equivalent populations of cities like Atlanta, Cleveland, and Virginia Beach each year. Hospital malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States, after cancer and heart disease.
