When you go to a hospital, it is usually because you or a loved one need treatment. Whether it is an emergency or a routine visit, the last thing you should have to worry about is being further harmed because of negligence on the part of the hospital staff.

From the condition of the hospital to the training of the staff, there are too many things that go wrong inside of hospitals. Most medical errors are preventable, which is why it is so shocking to learn that over 250,000 people lose their lives annually due to medical mistakes. Some estimates put that number at 440,000.
How, in a country so advanced, do so many people lose their lives?
There are times when hospital administration encourages doctors and nurses to “improve” their care by treating patients and discharging them quicker. They do this to free up more beds which can mean more money. This can lead to dangerous errors.
