More than 40,000 Wisconsin medical malformations, or medical malpractices, are costing the state more than $6 million a year.
That’s more than the entire medical industry lost in 2014.
More:In a recent letter, Wisconsin’s Department of Public Health said it’s seeing more than 300 cases a day.
It is one of the most common forms of medical mal practice in the country.
In 2014, the number of medical cases jumped from 717 to 923.
But the number now is rising again.
In 2015, there were 1,056 medical malplations.
In 2016, there was 975.
In 2017, the total jumped to 1,735.
In recent years, Wisconsin has seen a resurgence of medical claims.
In 2018, Wisconsin reported more than 8,400 medical malclaims.
That surge has made Wisconsin the second-most malpractice-prone state, behind California, according to a new report.
