Perhaps doctors would prefer to return to the days of old, before malpractice lawsuits?
Say what you will about the tort system, but it’s certainly an improvement over the old system.
Doctors in Hammurabi's day might have thought twice before doing surgery on a free Babylonian man. It was worth ten shekels of silver for him if he "made a large incision with a bronze lance and cured a free man, or has opened the abscess (in the eye) with the lance, and saved the eye of the man." If the patient died under the knife, or the eye was put out, the doctor lost both his hands. If the patient was not free, then the malpracticing physician was charged to "render slave for slave." Hammurabi also decreed that house builders who work was shoddy and caused the building to fall and kill its owner were likewise put to death.
I would imagine at least some “reformers” would like the Hammurabi system because it didn’t benefit plaintiffs’ lawyers.
