Why is the word ambulance written backwards on the front of an ambulance?

So that drivers ahead of it on the road can read it (correctly) as AMBULANCE in their rear-view mirrors, and yield the right of way.

If the word was not reversed, the drivers of the cars ahead of the vehicle would see: "ECNALUBMA."

Of course, if it has flashing lights and sirens going, they would yield to it anyway. Perhaps this was done so that drivers would not mistake an ambulance for a police vehicle with similar lights.

How many patients have died in a ambulance ride?

It is hard to answer that question. Almost every 15 seconds somewhere in the US there is an ambulance going out to rescue someone from an emergency.

A patient could clinically die (go into cardiac arrest) in the back of the ambulance, but they are not legally dead until they reach the emergency room where a physician can pronounce them dead. So it depends on your meaning. for clinical death, it is not that rare anymore to get pulses back with all the drugs and tools a paramedic has at their disposal. Nobody legally dies in the back of an ambulance.
