Sorry but these things happen in the US, as well. In fact, here, they are less likely to be discovered because the potential damage from lawsuits is so high things like this too often get covered up.
I'd love to read a comparative analysis of deaths due to negligence which occur in hospitals. Other variables could include (1) government expenditure in health care, and (2) amount of regulation, e.g. amount of pages of regulatory papers.
I could give you the WHO report again which contains stats on medically preventable deaths, but I'm not sure you'd like what you were looking at. On point 2, I'm not sure what you're aiming at. Surely the outcome of the regulations are more important than the amount. You're surely not saying that it should be an issue of quantity rather than quality?
If you got a legit WHO link for me, then I'd be inclined to read it.
It would show, if there would be any, variation among countries in regard to regulation. How does the amount of regulation affect health care quality, cover, expenses, etc.?
