How many Patients die due to Mistake during Hospital Treatment in BiH?

October 4, 2019 4:00 PM

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently announced that some 2.6 million people die annually as a result of unintentional errors in ambulances and hospitals worldwide.

The report states that four out of ten patients experience some of the adverse effects of treatment in clinics and 134 million adverse drug reactions are reported every year in hospitals in middle-developed and underdeveloped countries.

Unintentional harm to a patient due to a mistake during hospital treatment occurs in 8 to 12 percent of hospitalized patients.  In Bosnia and Herzegovina, no one knows the number of such cases.  However, no such cases have been recorded in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Patria News Agency reports.

“The competent institution for health statistics, including mortality data, is the Federal Institute of Public Health,” the FBiH Ministry of Health replied to a request from the Patria Agency.

Federal Institute of Public Health, however, said that no one had encountered such information at the Institute. “We know of the codes used to encrypt such cases, but no one has that information. You will have a hard time finding that information, “the Federal Institute of Public Health said. The situation is identical with the BiH entity Republika Srpska.
