According to the ECRI Institute, cybersecurity concerns were among the top 10 hazards that patients face.

According to the estate of actor Bill Paxton, both the surgeon who was operating on Paxton at the time of his death and the hospital where the procedure occurred are guilty of negligence. Both defendants disagree, claiming Paxton was aware of the risks. In Florida, it's not uncommon for wrongful death suits to target both the doctor and the medical facility.
