Doctors Can’t Cure Everything

Galen’s Log focuses its stethoscope on the malpractice and wrongful death lawsuit filed by the late actor John Ritter’s family against the hospital that treated him at the time of his death.

Unlike blogger Galen, I’m no physician, but I have to suspect that world famous, ultra popular TV personalities such as Ritter generally get decent attention in medical facilities.

Needless lawsuits drive up medical costs for everyone. I hope the Ritter family thought long and hard about the merits of this lawsuit before filing it.
