Latest Healthgrades study



With Turkewitz and Day both mentioning the annual Healthgrades study on medical safety in hospitals, and implying that it had implications for medical malpractice law, it is worth remembering our 2006 post pointing out that when Healthgrades ranked states that year, there was no clear relationship between Healthgrades ratings and whether the state had noneconomic damages caps. Of course, there are confounding variables, but it was interesting that states with caps were more likely to be in the above average category.
