Medical Negligence is Widespread and Deadly

 
Researchers for the Institute of Medicine found that medical errors - from surgical mistakes to dispensing the wrong medicine - kill 98,000 patients a year, including 4,500 children. 
 
Medical errors kill more Americans than diabetes, influenza and Alzheimer's every year - and if tracked separately would be the sixth leading cause of death.
 
Errors increase healthcare costs as much as $29 billion each year in additional treatment and longer hospital stays.
