What Hospitals Do Not Want You To Know

The hospital industry didn’t want the data released, but Medicare went ahead and made the information public anyway. 

According to the recent Medicare release 13.5% of the 1 million Medicare patients hospitalized each year experience an adverse event.

Adverse events are medical problems that could’ve been prevented and include things such as infections, falls, items left inside a patient after surgery, incompatible blood transfusions, wrong site surgeries and more.

The hospital industry may not want you to know how common these medical mistakes are but the government and your Pennsylvania medical malpractice lawyer do want you to know the risk.  If you have been hurt, or if you have lost a loved one, due to medical negligence please contact a Pennsylvania medical malpractice attorney today.
