U.S. malpractice

“Unnecessary care such as the overuse of antibiotics and lab tests to protect against malpractice exposure makes up 37 percent of healthcare waste or $200 to $300 billion a year.”

Funny, the Democrats don’t see, or refuse to recognize, the problem that the US healthcare system has with the amount and cost of malpractice for doctors… and yet it’s the largest waste of money.

Maybe this will make them rethink malpractice reform?  I won’t hold my breath.

This article also shows that a national healthcare system is not needed… it’s just going to add more layers of beaurocracy that will make waste that much easier.

Reform the malpractice laws… protect doctors better… and subsidize the hospitals if you feel the need to spend taxpayer dollars… as a last resort.
