According to Johns Hopkins patient safety experts, over 250,000 deaths occur each year in the United States as a result of medical errors.
This number surpasses data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which states that respiratory disease is the third leading cause of death, killing nearly 150,000 people every year across the country. The sad truth is that the common medical errors that doctors make are preventable and if they were more careful, they would be able to avoid injuring or killing patients.
Here is a look at some of the most common medical errors made by doctors:
