Shockingly, 440,000 people die every year from preventable medical errors (Hospital Safety Score), which has prompted some to call doctors the third leading cause of death in the United States. Beyond that, 10,000 complications occur every single day from these mistakes which take place in an environment assumed to be safe. Given these figures, it’s clear why a medical malpractice attorney is often needed.
You might think that technology is making the situation better, but it’s not. Devices can’t talk because they aren’t integrated, or interoperable, and mistakes can occur when nurses transcribe by hand. How bad is the problem? Half of nurses said that they’ve seen medical errors occur because of lack of interoperability between devices (Healthcare IT News).
