Medical Malpractice "Reform" Will Disproportionately Harm Women

side note: According a new Institute of Medicine report, 98,000 deaths occur due to medical malpractice. To make reparations more difficult would disproportionately affect women in the United States

Contrary to the assertions of those alleging the need for medical malpractice reform, the biggest crisis related to medical malpractice is not an epidemic of frivolous lawsuits. The real emergency is negligent medical care.

Preventable medical errors are this nation’s sixth leading cause of death, according to estimates by the Institute for Medicine, a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization which provides independent guidance and serves as an advisor to the nation to improve health. The IOM concludes that medical errors cause more than 98,000 deaths per year.
