Professionals must recognize personal responsibility.
Healthc Pap. 2001; 2(1):55-8, discussion 86-9.HP

Abstract

The recommendations Baker and Norton have developed for reducing error within the healthcare delivery system, with their emphasis on non-punitive reporting of error, are commendable. However, healthcare practitioners must clearly understand that the current medical/legal system has not adopted a similar approach. Courts have long recognized the right of victims to compensation for injury caused by malpractice or negligence. Individuals will be held to the accepted standards of their profession.
