According to United for Patient Safety, "...One in 10 patients develops a health care acquired condition during hospitalization. Medical error has been estimated to cause the deaths of 44,000 to 98,000 hospital patients a year, with recent research suggesting that the number might be as high as 440,000 deaths."
