Improving patient safety and fighting for patients’ rights

What you should know

Tens of thousands of people die each year from preventable medical errors. Meanwhile, the health care and insurance industries and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce lobby to limit the rights of injured patients to hold dangerous doctors accountable in court. Public Citizen urges policymakers to protect patients’ rights and reduce medical errors.

Our Work

We fight to improve patient safety and prevent injuries caused by malpractice and to hold health care professionals, policymakers and others accountable for protecting patients.
