Malpractice reform

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/05172/525947.stm

Why I'm not particlarly in favor of putting caps on damages in medical malpractice cases. For one, insurance rates are up significantly because the stock market dropped. Second, as you can read in the linked article, anesthesiologists lowered their malpractice rates by lowering accident rates in their profession. Doctors in general haven't attempted this.

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
