Medical Malpractice Myths

Filed under: — menk @ 12:20 pm

The United States is in a Medical care crisis. The trial lawyers would have you believe that bringing lawsuits against Doctors for bad outcomes somehow benefits the system and improves healthcare. This is not the case and in fact the skyrocketing cost of Malpractice Insurance has dramatic effects in worsening our national healthcare system.

The President of John Hopkins University (William R. Brody) has written a piece that describes the 5 ‘Myths of Malpractice’ that is quite enlightening for the general public who does not perhaps understand the current issues faced by the medical community.

Contrary to John Edwards and his fatcat Trial Lawyer friends we are facing serious issues that could result in a significant degradation of our Heathcare System. As a result this is everyone’s problem not just a problem for physicians and hospitals.
