In Hawaii, in 2001, a surgeon operated on a man to stabilize a disc injury in his spine. The titanium rod he needed to insert was not available in the operating room, so he reached for a nearby screwdriver, stuck it in the man’s back, and sewed up the incision. Two days later, the screwdriver broke and the wound opened. After three more attempts by the surgeon to remedy the situation, the patient was left a bedridden, incontinent paraplegic. Soon after, he died.

The issue of medical malpractice will not go away. In fact, in the years ahead, the problem – and the number of proposed remedies – will grow. Nationwide, doctors and other healthcare practitioners are leaving private practice, especially in high-risk areas where malpractice insurance premiums have skyrocketed. Rural hospitals are closing their doors; urban hospitals have difficulty staffing emergency rooms.

And yet, organized medicine cannot testify to what it is doing to mitigate the situation. Instead, it hides behind the robes of a judge. Medicine’s primary answer to a patient who questions an unacceptable outcome is, “Sue or forget it.”

This important book offers a radical, yet practical, prescription to remedy the primary cause of medical negligence in America. The cure is simple, inexpensive, and workable. It will enable hospital medical staffs to evaluate a practitioner’s capabilities; it will restore community confidence in the medical profession; and it will be effective, in most cases, without the need for attorneys, judges, or juries. Medical malpractice can be cured. This book tells how.

    Dr. Williams presents a practical solution to the medical malpractice “crisis” that seems so real. This book has changed my assumptions about the medical community.

    A very well constructed discussion on a pressing and immediate topic. Dr William’s book offers a qualified perspective in a clear framework while providing a unique recommendation on how to solve this growing problem impacting every American. I strongly recommend it as a must read to anyone with an interest in medical malpractice…both medical professionals and everyday patients alike.
