Focus Should Be On Health Care Safety

We understand that it is difficult for anyone to wrap their head around the issue of errors and health care. Americans have a justifiably high opinion of doctors, nurses and other care providers. The vast majority are dedicated professionals that do tremendous good for society.

But to err is human, and it has become clear that the big business of health and nursing home care results in too many preventable injuries. So read this newsletter not as an indictment of the fine people who work in health care today, but rather a defense of every American’s right to justice and accountability.

Proposed Law on Medical Malpractice and Nursing Home Abuse May Hurt Your Family

It’s already hard enough in many states to hold accountable those responsible for medical errors at nursing homes, clinics and hospitals. But a new bill now before the U.S. Congress will make it even harder, and in some cases impossible, for any American to pursue justice when injured by substandard health care. Given that credible studies show more people are killed and injured each year by medical errors and negligence than car accidents, this is one issue you should know more about NOW to protect yourself and those you love most.
