It is, AFAIK, the sixth leading cause of death, about 100,000 people in the US. Of all the millions who spend time in a hospital each year, it's a tiny fraction. And even that's not as bad as it sounds. Most of those are extremely ill, taking multiple medications, undergoing surgeries, etc. If they didn't interact with doctors at all, many of that 100,000 would die that year anyway. Which is why I asked the sarcastic question the way I did.
