Our blog post from earlier this week visited the subject of medication error, noting the sheer magnitude of this problem in medical facilities in Ohio and across the United States.
We noted in that post that, “The spectrum of medical malpractice acts or omissions is truly broad, encompassing a wide universe of harms.”
Indeed, that is true, with preventable medical mistakes occurring across a broad landscape. Errors occur during surgery. Birth injuries devastate families. Hospital-acquired infections are commonplace. Medical misdiagnosis plagues high numbers of patients.
