250,000 die due to medical mistakes every year… 1 in 3 people will experience a medical error


Medical errors, including wrong diagnoses, botched surgeries and medication mistakes, are the third leading cause of death in the the United States. 250, 00 Americans die to due doctor errors each year, which is greater than any major medical condition except heart disease and cancer.

One in three patients who are admitted to the hospital will experience a medical error.

Recently in North Texas several patients who underwent routine cataract surgery claim they are experiencing partial or total blindness as a result.  The patients say they went into Key-Whitman Eye Center in Febuary for cataract surgery.

The cataract patients who underwent a routine cataract surgery claim they’re experiencing partial or complete blindness as a result.

The patients say they went into the Eye Center between Feb. 9 and 14 for a routine cataract surgery, receiving as part of the procedure an eye injection to aid their eye inflammation and irritation. Many of the patients who received this injection developed decreased vision. It is believed that the injection can cause severe deterioration and thinning of the retina. It is unknown at this time whether the patients’ vision will improve or be permanent. http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/health/Cataract-Surgery-Leads-to-Eye-Damage-Patients-420298033.html

Key-Whitman Eye Center sent a letter to its patients who may have been affected by the eye medication injection.
