Medical malpractice is the result of a breach of duty by a medical provider or facility. This could take many forms, from staff members failing to follow set protocols to poor coordination among medical teams. It can also include misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or treatment, or failure to provide treatment altogether.
According to a 2016 study conducted by researchers at Johns Hopkins University, medical malpractice is actually the third leading cause of death in the U.S., affecting over 250,000 patients each year. However, because of CDC reporting criteria, it doesn’t even appear on the list of leading causes of death. This number doesn’t account for the many instances of medical malpractice that do not result in death.
