Government Hospital Hiding Malpractic in Medicine

Imagine a nation where the government owns the hospital and can restrict you from discovery in a malpractice suit.

Hospital Does Not Have To Disclose Quality Assurance Reports In Medical Malpractice Case Michael Watts, Kathy O'Brien

The Ontario Superior Court of Justice released a significant judgment in November 2002, confirming that quality assurance reports prepared by a Quality Assurance Subcommittee of the Medical Advisory Committee are confidential and privileged and need not be produced by the hospital in a medical malpractice lawsuit. The case provides valuable guidance to risk managers and medical leaders about the steps they need to take to establish and protect the confidentiality of these QA reports.

The case, Steep (Litigation Guardian of) v. Scott (2003), 62 O.R. (3d) 173, involved a medical malpractice action arising from the birth of an infant with severe brain damage. The parents sought production of two quality assurance reports from the Kingston General Hospital that related to the case. The court dismissed the production request.

Senator Jim DeMint's Official YouTube Account Following the November elections in 2006, the senator stood up against big spenders in Congress and stopped over 10,000 wasteful pork projects. Famed Washington journalist Robert Novak called him a "hero."He was recently ranked as the Senate's most conservative member by National Journal and as the No. 1 senator voting for responsible tax and spending policies by the National Taxpayers Union. DeMint understands the greatness of a country is found in its people and values, not in its government
Republican Leader of the House, John Boehner House Republican Leader and a staunch opponent of pork-barrel politics, John is fighting to eliminate wasteful spending, create jobs, and balance the federal budget without raising taxes. He has challenged Republicans in the 111th Congress to be not just the party of “opposition,” but the party of better solutions to the challenges facing the American people. Under the new House GOP leadership team John leads, House Republicans have formed “solutions groups” to develop principled alternatives on the issues that matter most to American families and small businesses, and launched the GOP State Solutions project, an initiative aimed at bringing reform-minded Republicans at the state and federal levels together to promote common-sense solutions from outside the Beltway.
