Tort Reform Important

From Richardd Moore. A good read on tort reform. It makes you wonder.

New survey shows why tort reform is important - Richard Moore

"Doctors make different decisions about their own health care, in other words, than they do when making recommendations to their patients. This article discussed a number of reasons for that, but I would suggest one factor in the difference is the fear of lawsuits.

It's easier to prescribe a treatment and warn of its side effects than to recommend no treatment – even when that is what you would opt for yourself – and be sued for malpractice later."
