"Survey: U.S. docs want tort reform"



OK, that headline's not exactly news (via Freddoso/Examiner), but the numbers are still useful to have: 92 percent of American physicians want liability relief included in the health bill, and 85 percent "said the threat of medical malpractice litigation is their primary hindrance to practicing medicine as they see fit." The online survey of 1,978 physicians was conducted for Atlanta-based Jackson Healthcare.
