The Federal Government, no stranger to making major mistakes itself, is now reporting on mistakes made in medical emergency rooms in the United States every year.
The Department of Health and Human Services which is headed up by a person who has no medical education or background, estimates seven-point-four million errors are made each year in ER’s across the country.
Those mistakes result in about two-point-six million people being harmed.
An additional 370-thousand people are permanently disabled or die.
The top conditions that are misdiagnosed include stroke, heart issues and spinal cord injuries.
