Creating a safe environment.
Health Aff (Millwood). 2003 Jul-Aug; 22(4):41-3.HA

Abstract

William Sage provides an excellent rationalization for today's medical liability crisis. Patient safety and a safe environment are related concepts directed at helping to resolve this crisis. His paper helps to bring the complexities into perspective and suggests the need for an even better definition of "avoidable error" and for a righting of the tort system in the direction of the health care provider. I discuss here two ideas concerning injury compensation tables and medical liability specialty courts to help bring about this "righting."
