Old facts confirmed: Medical errors 3rd leading cause of death
A presentation was done at ASPE this year that mentioned that medical error has been under the microscope since the publication in 1994 of "Human Error in Medicine" by Dr. Marilyn Sue Bogner, followed up in 1999 by the Institute of Medicine's "To Err is Human." The IOM report found that almost 100,00 deaths per year were preventable as well as two-thirds of medical injuries.
