In 2013, a study reported by the Journal of Patient Safety revealed that between 210,000 and 440,000 patients who go to the hospital die as a result of preventable harm created by that hospital. This frightening statistic is confirmation of the need to hold healthcare providers and facilities accountable for the all-too-common medical errors that result in the severe injury or death of patients.
When patients seek medical help, they rightfully expect to receive healthcare services that, at the very least, meet the minimum standards of care. Professional malpractice in the medical field often results in permanent disability, catastrophic injury or death.
