Preventable medical errors kill and seriously injure hundreds of thousands of Americans every year. Errors include physician diagnostic mistakes, incomplete or deficient patient records, medication-prescription slip-ups, staff fatigue and overwork, procedural safety-check lapses and others.
Experts believe that if doctors, nurses, dentists, technicians, and other staff were simply more careful, they would make fewer errors. Preventing medical errors will lower health care costs, reduce doctors’ insurance premiums, and protect the health and well-being of patients.
