Overview

The medical malpractice crisis continues to be a major dilemma for the healthcare industry. Physicians are forced to practice “defensive medicine” or curtail their practice because of the risk of lawsuits and the high cost of malpractice insurance. Most states recognize this problem and in recent years have enacted tort-reform legislation to ease the burden on healthcare providers while protecting the public’s interest.

This exercise will help you understand the issues surrounding malpractice, the impact on delivering healthcare, and how various states through legislation have addressed this issue. The Ethics and Law chapter will help you to complete this assignment.
