Stand Up for Patients' Rights
Tell Your Representative to Oppose H.R. 5
One out of every three hospital patients is sickened, injured, killed or otherwise harmed because of a medical error.
Meanwhile, our members of Congress could be making their own grave error: they could pass H.R. 5, an extreme bill that would limit our rights and offer a handout to the medical industry by allowing it to go virtually unpunished when patients are harmed or killed.
Under this bill, the costs of medical mistakes would shift to injured patients, their families and taxpayer-funded health and disability programs.
Stand up for patients' rights. Enter your zip code below and use the form that appears to tell your member of Congress to oppose H.R. 5.
Congress should focus on improving patient safety and reducing deaths and injuries. H.R. 5 does neither.
