Unfortunately, medical mistakes kill enough people each week to fill four jumbo jets.1 Many of these mistakes are preventable, but they are continually made over and over again. The Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) seminal study of preventable medical errors estimated as many as 98,000 people die every year due to potential medical errors.2 If the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) were to include preventable medical errors as a category, these conclusions would make it the sixth leading cause of death in America.3 The Institute for Healthcare Improvement estimates there are 15 million incidents of medical harm each year.4
