According to the Millennium Research Group, medical errors are the fifth leading cause of deaths in the United States, with up to 98,000 deaths annually. Research has found that medical errors are the third highest cause of death in the U.S., following heart disease and cancer. These errors can be prevented; however hospitals choose to ignore the problem. In fact, Americans do not enjoy improved health care, compared to their counterparts in industrialized nations. In fact according to an article on World Health Education Initiative, the U.S. ranks 12th, among 13 countries including Japan, Sweden, France and Canada, based on the measurement of 16 health indicators, such as life expectancy, low-birth-weight averages, and infant mortality.
