While it would seem logical that anyone concerned about errors in patient management might spend their time and effort on where the most damage is occurring, this is apparently not the case.
We have reports, such as the Institute of Medicine’s, telling us that nearly 100,000 people die every year due to medical error and that these errors cost us $37.6 billion a year. Amazingly, based on that report organized medicine then says it needs billions of dollars from our government to try and find out why they are killing so many and to search for ways to stop it.
They are literally asking the very people they are killing (American taxpayers) to pay to fix the problem they created. A problem that leaves the United Sates ranked 37th in overall health system performance by the WHO.
