Public Citizen came out with a new report. There is no medical malpractice crisis. OOPS! The insurance companies and doctors apparently forgot to tell us that! The report can be found here.
The report states “The real problems are a lack of attention to patient safety, the high incidence of preventable medical error and the lack of accountability for a small set of doctors who account for a majority of medical malpractice payments, the report reveals. The report also presents several recommendations for Congress, state governments and hospitals to reduce health care costs and save lives.”
So, there you have it. No malpractice crisis for our friends in the medical profession. Now, maybe we can start talking about helping people and stop with the nonsense!
