Avicenna Clinical Safety Services

ADEs are the single largest category of adverse events in hospitalized patients (19% of all injuries). Preventable ADEs occurring annually in U.S. hospitals were estimated to number 380,000 to 450,000 [1].

Did you know that patients hospitalized with an Adverse Drug Event (ADE) have an increased length of stay, higher treatment costs, and they at higher risk of in-hospital death than patients without an ADE [2]. The incremental cost of an ADE is estimated to be $5857 [3].

The estimated cost of in- hospital ADEs exceeds $2.3 billion a year
