The Effect of Malpractice Reform on Emergency Department Care

440000People‬ are killed every year by preventable medical errors. But too often our elected officials are focused on tort reform legislation that limits legal accountability and patients' rights instead of efforts to improve patient care. A just-released study by @TheNewEnglandJournalofMedicine debunks one of the favorite myths of tort reformers: defensive medicine. Make sure politicians don't fall for the myths. Share this post and spread the word - If no one is accountable, no one is safe.
