Preventable hospital errors kill and injure hundreds every year, including last year in 2018.

March 11, 2019

Preventable errors and medical malpractice in military hospitals happens hundreds of times every year.

Surgery on the wrong body part, surgery on the wrong patient, newborns seriously injured and killed during routine deliveries, medication mix-ups leading to serious injury- all of these preventable errors, and more, were reported to have happened 384 times in Minnesota hospitals last year. Minnesota is not alone as other states report similar medical mistakes and military hospitals are certainly not immune from malpractice.
