Billions of children worldwide owe their lives to the extraordianry care and treatment they receive at hospitals. Unfortunately, every year a number of children are injured or even killed by hospital errors and medical malpractice. These errors include medication administration errors, procedural errors, identity mistakes, night shift errors, and various other injuries.
In August 2016, potentially fatal Pseudomonas bacteria was uncovered in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Prince George’s County Hospital Center in the wake of two infant deaths. Hospitals that filter out and/or effectively treat water to reduce bacterial load succeed in protecting patients/babies from infection.
