Medical malpractice is a leading cause of death and injury in the United States. From hospital malpractice to physician negligence to medication errors, more than 225,000 people die and more than one million are injured each year as a result of adverse events associated with medical treatment. According to the Institute of Medicine, up to 98,000 of those deaths occur in hospitals. In addition to hospitals, medical mistakes resulting in death or serious injury can occur in a variety of settings, including doctors’ offices, emergency care centers, clinics, outpatient surgery centers, nursing homes, pharmacies and patients’ homes.
