Medical errors harm nearly 1.5 million Americans annually. Medical errors occur in hospitals and doctors' offices through electronic medical records and even during surgeries. Through misdiagnosis, incorrect prescriptions, surgical complications or negligence, patients and health care professionals alike need to be better educated about these mishaps and how they can be prevented.
This campaign was made possible with the support of the American College of Medical Scribe Specialists, Posey company, Surfacide, Detecto, Vidashield, Sharn Anesthesia and Biomerieux.
