You do realize of course that those statistics are from before the ACA? right? that is the result of our health care system as it is, prior to the ACA.<quoted text>O'bamacare is institutional corruption--right now the medical industry is responsible for over 400, 000 deaths each year--and yet you are begging for it.
*According to the most recent research into the cost of medical mistakes in terms of lives lost, 210,000 Americans are killed by preventable hospital errors each year. When deaths related to diagnostic errors, errors of omission, and failure to follow guidelines are included, the number skyrockets to an estimated 440,000 preventable hospital deaths each year. That makes medical errors the third-leading cause of death in the US, right after heart disease and cancer.
If we limit it to adverse drug reactions alone, the study tells us that 2.7 million Americans experience a serious adverse drug reaction while hospitalized each year. Of those, an estimated 128,000 die as a direct result of the adverse reaction. According to those statistics, hospital-based adverse drug reactions alone are the fourth leading cause of death in the US.
Step right up-get your O'bamacare--and you will be forced into so-called 'healthcare" that O'bama deems fit. It is eugenics.
maybe you should also point out that before the ACA, health care costs take the biggest portion of our GDP with the lowest returm of all industrialized nations. We get less for the buck than any other industrialized nation, before the ACA.
and what is the republican response to those statistics....
to limit medical malpractice awards and make it harder to sue health care professionals, institutions, and drug companies.
Texas is a prime example, they passed legislation years ago to limit malpractice awards,,,,and guess what, they have one of the highest health care costs in the states
