Comment on the state of medical malpractice

The PopTort has a short comment here on medical malpractice in which it points out that malpractice continues at epidemic levels while state disciplinary boards are doing very little to properly police the small number of physicians responsible for most of it and lawsuits are dropping precipitously. Here is a new fact sheet from the Center for Justice and Democracy supporting the conclusiong that to the extent there is a medical malpractice “crisis,” the crisis is not because of the number of lawsuits filed but because of the extent of medical malpractice incidents actually taking place.
