Vancouver has a population of over two million people and as such is the third largest urbanization in Canada which has medical facilities in accordance with a large population including several large hospitals and many smaller specialist clinics. Whilst most medical procedures are carried out without incident there are occasions when errors and mistakes are made resulting in injury, sometimes fatal, to the patient. It is estimated that as many as 5,000 patients in Vancouver suffer serious injury because of medical malpractice every year. In addition, it is estimated that over 1,000 patients die annually because of preventable adverse events in Vancouver acute care hospitals. It is estimated that as many as 10% of those who are admitted to hospital will suffer from an adverse event at the hands of healthcare professionals. The Baker-Norton research study estimated that 7.5% of adult patients suffered from a serious adverse event of which 40% were preventable. The numbers with respect to children are even higher. In addition to human error there are also many cases of bio-mechanical and other medical devices that fail and Health Canada reports that nationally there are about 10,000 reports annually of incidents suspected of being caused by failed devices which cause serious injury including many deaths.
