According to the Institute of Medicine, between 44,000 and 98,000 people die each year in the US as the result of medical errors1. That's more than breast cancer, AIDS, or car accidents.
Based on these findings, Public Citizen estimates wrongful death in Pennsylvania hospitals to be between 1,920 to 4,277, and these numbers are just the cases that result in death. Misdiagnosis, injury, infection, and a host of other types of medical malpractice are not even accounted for in these numbers.
