KHN Malpractice Column

Kaiser Health News with a column that touts damage caps and a bill in Congress to bring about changes. Some interesting comments about needing to be careful that damage caps don't simply shift liability to non physician defendants and the relative role of federal v. state reform of medical malpractice reform.

I think a more comprehensive patient safety approach is needed, with malpractice and liability reforms being a part of the answer, not the full answer. My recent posts on the topic and consideration in the NC General Assembly here, and here and here.
