Just how deadly is our medical system?

The DHS says that only one out of seven medical mistakes are reported. The BMJ says that only 4% of preventable medically related deaths are ever reported. Now take those pitiful numbers and compare them to the over 100,000 or so actually reported Medicare deaths each year and we are easily looking at over TWO MILLION unreported and unnecessary deaths a year because of medical mistakes – including Medicare mandatory reported hospital acquired infections, wrong meds, unintentional overdoses, patient mix-ups and etc. And that is just using Medicare numbers! Some 130,000 patients are reported hurt every month by medical mistakes meaning that there are almost 800,000 incidents of unreported medical screw-ups every single month. I’ve always said that one of the most dangerous things you can do is to set foot in a hospital.
