Does defensive medicine really prevent litigation?

Most people are familiar with the Hippocratic Oath by which all doctors and medical professionals live. But a doctor's duty to make the best judgments possible and to do no harm is often mired by the looming threat that if they fail to meet these expectations, they could face litigation as a result.

Eye Injuries Caused by Medical Malpractice

According to the 2014 report for the National Health Interview Survey, 22.5 million adults in the United States aged 18 and older reported that they experienced vision loss. Of these 22.5 million, 9.5 million men and 13.0 million women reported that they experienced significant loss of vision.

What You need to Prove in Medical Malpractice

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the third leading cause of death in the United States is medical negligence. It falls right behind heart disease and cancer. In 2012, the cost of medical malpractice payouts was more than $3 billion, which was an average of 1 payout every 43 minutes. About 65,000 to 200,000 deaths are caused each year by medical accidents. According to hospital records, 25,000 to 120,000 deaths are a result of medical malpractice or negligence every year.

Misdiagnosis of Neck or Back Pain and Medical Malpractice

According to a recent study released by the Institute of Medicine, the majority of people will suffer from at least one delayed or wrong diagnosis in their lifetime. Approximately 2 million diagnostic errors a year occur in the United States. The report found that 5% of adults in the country who seek outpatient medical care will experience misdiagnosis. Furthermore, errors in diagnosis are believed to contribute about 17% of adverse outcomes in hospitals and 10% of all patient deaths.

Risk Management and Medical Malpractice

It is projected that the health care employment sector, employment will increase 19% from 2014 to 2024, adding about 2.3 million new jobs, which is more rapid than the average for all occupations considering policy killing jobs and high taxes are in effect and making this recession last much longer than it should have. Occupations in health care will add more jobs than any other industry but the job growth here would be much greater if the ACA was never passed and America was kinder to the private sector.
