Dear President Obama:
On March 1, 2010, the undersigned five survivors of medical negligence and family members had the honor of meeting with the White House Office of Public Engagement about the issue of medical malpractice. We were extremely grateful for this opportunity.
We noted in our July 7, 2009 letter to you requesting this meeting that, “People like us and our families certainly do not feel as though doctors and hospitals practice too much ‘defensive medicine,’ or that lawsuits against negligent providers are frivolous, or that there is any justification for eliminating or restricting the right to jury trial in medical malpractice cases.” We wanted the opportunity to explain to you why patients injured by medical malpractice should not be blamed for our nation’s health care costs, and that the only real medical malpractice problem in this country today is the unacceptable amount of preventable errors and negligence.
Please see full article letter for more information.
