According to the National Academy of Science, medical mistakes kill an estimated 44,000 to 98,000 and injure as many as one million Americans every year.
The most common kinds of medical malpractice include: the failure to diagnose or a failure to treat a life threatening medical condition, including for example cancer, appendicitis, ectopic pregnancy, heart attack (myocardial infarction) or meningitis (in children); and medication errors (right drug, wrongly prescribed; dispensing errors; wrong drug prescribed; failure to consider drug interactions; etc.).
