Saving Lives With the American Patient Rights Association

Up to 440,000 people are dying each year from preventable medical errors in hospitals, and more than 500,000 people are bankrupted by predatory medical bills. APRA is fighting to stop these preventable deaths and bankruptcies.

PATIENT SAFETY REPORTING SYSTEM. An incident reporting system for patients, their families, and advocates to assist patients when they are harmed by their healthcare and to assist medical facilities in improving their patient safety. Reports will be available to the public.

SAVING PATIENTS’ HOMES. A program to help people who are threatened with bankruptcy because of predatory medical bills. Many COVID patients who are hospitalized will have extraordinary bills to pay. Some hospitals that are offering COVID tests have billed people over $2000 for a single test!
