Doctors, nurses and other health care providers are required to use reasonable care in treating their patients. When health care providers fail to use reasonable care, patients can suffer devastating injuries or even death. In fact, a 2013 study in The Journal of Public Safety found that hospital medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for up to 400,000 deaths a year.
