Medical mal practice: something that gets quite a bit of air time these days and has for many years. The notion that doctors are being held accountable for things that were just unforeseeable or simple human events, things that couldn’t have been prevented, that’s not medical mal practice and that’s not what we are talking about. Medical mal practice is the concept that a doctor who’s skilled in an area and who knows better and just doesn’t do it. Just doesn’t follow the rules. You know you’re not supposed to run a red light in a car and if you do it any way, you’re liable for the damages. What about a doctor who knows their supposed to do the procedure this way but cuts corners to finish an hour earlier and your injury is a result? Is that just a mistake? Is that something that we ought to tolerate? No, that’s medical mal practice and that’s action.
