In a study conducted by the Department of Health and Human Services, staff
from hospitals that accept Medicare payments onlyreported one out of seven medical errors with Medicare patients.

While many of these medical errors did not hurt patients, some may have
long-term effects. But there will be no record of the error because employees
reported not knowing what constituted “patient harm,” among
other reasons. This increases the chances that a patient will be unable
to seek justice. Without the report, it may be difficult to seek justice
and the patient may be unable to prove negligence.

While healthcare professionals can provide you the necessary medical care
you need, it’s always good to keep your records, observe what they
do, and research as much as possibleto identify whether you are receiving adequate and proper care.
