How often does fentanyl cause overdose death?

In brief: Depends

The main risks with fentanyl would be excessive and/or inappropriate over-usage at home.
Deaths from narcotic accidental overdoses are increasing across the country. In a monitored situation such as in a hospital, overdose would likely be very rare but not impossible.
