So is it any wonder that they don't report dangerous doctors. It has happened already. Read about ICU nurse Toni Hoffman on the web, after she reported Jayant Patel. And when a doctor blew the whistle on a very well known Neurosurgeon, he was the one sacked and discredited and his life was so destroyed that he nearly committed suicide...So you see why nobody reports bad doctors, and even when they do, like the group of doctors who got together and exposed Professor Kossman who defrauded Medicare and Private Health Insurances by charging for operations he didn't do, plus for doing unnecessary operations on accident victims and performing dangerous surgery way beyond his expertise, he wasn't put in jail. He was given a job at a well-known private hospital. Doctors are above the law....""PATIENTS FIRST!! PATIENTS FIRST!! PATIENTS FIRST!! And my after-thoughts . . . in the states that have ""caps"" it should be stautory that: 1) defense lawyers have ""caps"" as well, and ALL states 2) defense lawyers or insurance companies should be able to settle the case. As it is now, ONLY DOCTORS can ""authorize"" their insurance carriers to settle. Why should the doctors who have harmed their patients have this say? It is a conflict of interest. OF COURSE with the deep pocket insurance companies, why wouldn't doctors just let this illogical system ride out? Patients CAN NOT file a claim. A patent HAS TO SUE. Then when we do -because we are forced to -- we are targeted as sue happy, and all our cases are deemed frivilous. This type of system sets it up for the doctors to lie, deny, obfiscate the truth, with their insurance carriers being used to perputate their lies and medical cover ups the insurance carrriers are set up to pay the defense firms -- covering for the sins, their crimes against their patients. This should be illegal to do. Insurance companies ARE paying out ""compensation"" -- to the defense firms. There is NO incentive for the doctors to offer a ""settlement"" to patients they have harmed when they know they have their hired guns paying the defense firms. Even though most settlements have ""without admitting guilt"" language, doctors just string out the pain and suffering of the patients by NOT authorizing settlements. It's the Fox guarding the hen house mentality that TRULY raises the costs. It's the defense lawyers that get the compensation, when it should be earmarked for the harmed patient. PATIENTS FIRST!! That why doctors have insurance. But it doesn't go to patents that have been harmed. It goes to line the pockets of the Defense lawyers are financially benefitting by this provision -- e.g., givng the doctors the authority to settle, which they NEVER authorize. They continue to harm us with this system in place. Auto insurance is NOT that way. Homeowners insurance is NOT that way. Only the medical malpratice insurance is that way. Why? Because it lines the pockets of the defense firms.
