Everything is so with her - just for one known reason, someone asks stupid questions, trying to prove a knowingly false thesis about the ineffectiveness of modern medicine.
Actually, the numbers are real, but they are for 2001. For 2014, this is 225,000 deaths, I did not find more recent data. So the situation was once bad, now it has improved. In general, the situation around the world is about the same, doctors make mistakes, and they often make mistakes. And the higher the level of medicine, the more they treat, and the more often mistakes are made.
With conventional (generally accepted, standard) medicine, everything is fine in the United States. The number of iatrogenic (caused by a mistake in diagnosis or treatment) cause of death in the United States raises my doubts.
Insurance medicine in the USA works in such a way that a doctor's mistake is insanely expensive for insurance companies and the clinic itself. Therefore, it is vitally important for clinics to hire highly qualified doctors and have the best equipment for diagnostics and treatment, and it is very important for universities to train such doctors and develop modern equipment to increase their ranking, and often the best clinics work directly at universities. This mechanism university - clinic - doctor - patient - insurance is brilliantly debugged by lawyers.
Below I will give a few comparisons on some indicators of the United States and Russia, which I dug up on the Internet. Check it out for yourself, and you will understand my doubts about the number (780,000?) In the question.
