When he was 18, Lydell Begay went to a New Mexico hospital operated by the government-run Indian Health Service after complaining of dizziness. He was discharged with a diagnosis of pinkeye, and within a week suffered brain damage from a stroke. Now 23, Begay is confined to a wheelchair and unable to speak.⠀
The IHS, which provides health care to 2.6 million Native Americans, gave second chances and hired dozens of physicians—including Begay's—with trails of medical mistakes and regulatory sanctions.⠀
Since 2006, the U.S. government has paid out about $55 million in settlements in 163 malpractice cases at IHS hospitals. At least 66 patients in those cases died in the agency's care.⠀

Im from New Mexico also. Went to Colorado to recieve help for the 2 strokes I suffered. Best of luck to this young man.
Data on how this compares to private and VA healthcare would be a great addition to this piece to provide perspective on what these numbers mean. These statistics sound startling, but medical malpractice is common and not limited to the IHS. These numbers boil down to a little more than one case per month. Is that a lot or a little knowing the patient pool is 2.6 million?
This is appalling
Tragic. And I guess those folks should run healthcare for everyone?!

Good facts man. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.
Maybe we can focus on this after the holidays and the impeachment process 🙄
It's time to GIVE them their reservation land and let them pursue success equally.
