New report on medical malpractice
Here is a link to a series of stories that the PopTort blog is calling "the most comprehensive and compelling national investigative series about medical malpractice that any news organization may ever have produced." The link includes in-depth statistical analysis, victims’ stories, slide shows, videos, state-by-state analysis of "adverse event" reporting policies, and much, much more. The report makes clear that, as Tom Baker argues in his book The Medical Malpractice Myth, the so called medical malpractice isn’t a crisis of lawsuits—the crisis is that there is so much medical malpractice.
