Would you believe someone if they told you the third largest cause of death in American can be boiled down to preventable circumstances? It may be hard to believe, but in recent years a relatively unknown epidemic has swept the nation, unintentional medical errors. What is harder to believe, is that this occurs in the place where we should feel the safest. In American hospitals and clinics, doctors and nurses are witnessing an estimated 200,000 preventable fatalities each year!
