But the real problem is medical malpractice lawsuits, right?

 

RALEIGH, North Carolina (AP) -- A mental patient died after workers at a North Carolina hospital left him in a chair for 22 hours without feeding him or helping him use the bathroom, said federal officials who have threatened to cut off the facility's funding.

The state sent a team Tuesday to help Cherry Hospital in Goldsboro draft new procedures to ensure patients receive proper care.

An investigator's report released Monday found that 50-year-old Steven Sabock died in April after he choked on medication and was left sitting in a chair for close to a day at the facility about 50 miles southeast of Raleigh. Surveillance video showed hospital staff watching television and playing cards a few feet away.

Federal officials have threatened to cut off funding because of Sabock's death and a report that a physician punched a patient after the teen bit the doctor.

Justinian: Try correcting the staff, and other members of totally entitled minorities. They can no longer be spoken to. A land pirate vermin will descend with a lawyer gotcha in his teeth, and destroy the entity.

But yourself. The real problem is that total incompetence, callousness, and evil have been immunized by the cult criminal, their being its clients.

most of the costs of manufacturing jobs have nothing to do with tort reform or the hidden cost of lawyers and everything to do with bloated salaries, pensions, payroll and federal and state regulation. how about you show me the last big time manufacturing mass tort that caused a company in the US to suspend or alter the sale of a product.
