People are Dying Every Year due to Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is the bane of the medical profession like no other leading to doctors being left with few choices in many instances but to limit their practice or get out of it altogether.  Take the rash of obstetricians several years back getting out of the business of delivering babies and opting for decreased services to women, in essence limiting their obstetrics choices.  But the real problem lies with the amount of people dying every year due to a variety of mistakes that could have been avoided were it not for their doctor’s blatant oversights.

It’s true that immunizations like this one have saved thousands of lives since the very first mass inoculations just after World War II, but a growing concern regarding the possible side effects of new vaccines like hepatitis B has mounted in recent years.
