for the record

When I die, if it's from a misdiagnosis and the doctor did the best he could, I don't want anything like this to happen. Had a discussion yesterday with two physicians who come into the cigar shop. About malpractice insurance. It's going up 41% this year and the insurance companies won't say why.

Doctoring ain't what it used to be is it? The average OB-GYN pays out 100K a year for insurance, and gets paid between 1800 - 2200 from the insurance companies for a typical pre-natal, delivery, post-natal (6 weeks check up) patient. There's a surgeon shortage now and it's going to get worse.

If you've got a phone, you've got a lawyer. And you don't pay unless we win!!

I live in Pennsylvania (this week), where that's a huge problem. Doctors are leaving the state because they can't afford the malpractice insurance.

There are times when docs screw up. A woman I knew years ago couldn't have anymore children because her OB botched her C-section. Of course, he got nothing but a slap on the wrist from some medical board.

And yet there are others who no doubt file lawsuits because it's Thursday and hey! They have nothing better to do.

This country is going to litigate itself into extinction.
