I think Evelyn told me that the 2nd or third leading cause of death was Hospital errors....can't remember which one it was..heck, it could have been 4th.

I believe btw. that this referrs to "death in hospital" (which doesn't make it better.....) and is actually outnumbered by deaths caused by infections acquired in hospitals (nosocomial infections). So as much as it is sad nowadays that patients get less and less time to recover in a hospital due to monetary issues (at least here in Germany, thanks to the Australian imported DRGs......gnnnnn) it has it's good sides as well- less time in the hospital, less chance to get an infection.
