Other research7 has estimated the number of Americans dying from medical mistakes may actually be as high as 440,000. The reason for the discrepancy in the numbers is because medical errors are rarely noted on death certificates, and death certificates are what the CDC relies on to compile its death statistics.
As a result, the severity of the problem goes unnoticed. Either way, whether it’s 250,000 or 440,000, medical errors still claim more lives than COVID-19 has, and it does so on an annual basis.
