Med-mal: news from Libya and Somalia



Via MedPundit: physicians in much of the U.S. may find their legal environment discouraging, but they can still be thankful they don't practice in Libya (doctors accused of spreading HIV through needle reuse subjected to torture and face execution by firing squad) (Jun. 8) or Somalia (family sends gunmen to hospital following hysterectomy, although dispute later amicably resolved in Sharia court)(also Jun. 8)
