But irrespective the United States as the worlds best hospitals and our medical technology is cutting edge so there is no excuse for errors of commission or omission. It is just not good enough and should not be tolerated.

Less than 2% of medical malpractice incidents ever give rise to a health malpractice claim. The reasons for the small percentage is that, fortunately, most incidents are inconsequential and often the patient was not even aware of the misdiagnosis or an erroneous drug dose having been administered.
