    The medical profession likes to blame high malpractice premiums on trial lawyers. Given that far fewer than 1/3 of hospital admissions result in a malpractice case, that clearly isn’t the case. Rather, if the profession concentrated on reducing errors, rather than blaming the trial lawyer messenger, it might actually make a beneficial difference.

      There is no doubt plenty of errors are made and errors of ommission as well as commission. 50% of all doctors graduated in the lower 50% of their class. They charge people exhorbitant amounts and the level of service is abominable in many areas. A family member usually has to be present for a hospitalized person because nurses are often unavailable to help on basic needs. Pretty bad if you ask me.
