Do No Harm: Malpractice in America

  • Aired: 01/25/2013

  • Expires: 01/25/2018
  • Rating: NR
Every year, one in 14 doctors will be sued for malpractice; and a survey by the AMA found that more than 60% of doctors over 55 have been sued at least once. Most lawsuits will be dismissed, or resolved in favor of the doctor; but the cost of insuring against such suits can be huge. At the same time, the majority of patients who suffer injury from malpractice, never receive any compensation.
