A is wrong because "Re-check" is not necessary done by doctors and nurses.
D is correct because of "estimated" and "were saved"; it is past tense. I know this sounds unbelievable, but D is correct.

Negation is the key here try negate D and the argument fails

[quote="GetThisDone"]As many as 98,000 people die each year due to medical error. In a campaign to reduce lethal errors, thousands of hospitals introduced six key changes, including rapid-response teams, re-checks of patient medication, and new guidelines for preventing infection. The campaign estimated that, over an 18-month period, more than 100,000 lives were saved as a direct result of the program.

Which of the following can be most properly inferred from the above statements?

A) Doctors and nurses should be more careful when doing their jobs.
[color=#ed1c24][/color]b) The campaign saved all of the people who otherwise would have died due to medical error in that time period. This is too ambitious
c) In the future, no one will die because of medical error. [color=#ff0000]this is clearly too ambitious[/color]
d) If the campaign had not been implemented, more than 100,000 people might have died during the 18-month period due to medical error. [color=#00a651]they key word here is might- this answer does not say those people were inarguably saved by the campaign but rather that the campaign was probably why they were saved[/color]
e) The key changes initiated by the campaign will continue to be implemented in the future. they could but the stimulus is trying to get us to infer something about the effect of the campaign, which there is far greater evidence to make an inference for
