Let's cap the salaries of health insurance company executives at the same level as caps of non-economic damages applied to medical malpractice victims. Maybe, then, premiums will go down.

Thomas A. Sharon, R.N., M.P.H.

Most patients don't know when they become victims of malpractice. New studies tell us that the estimates of 200,000 preventible hospital deaths per year that we have seen since 1999 were bogus. The actual numbers are ten times that many at 2 million. That's one in every fifty hospital admissions. Therefore, hospitals are killing more people than heart attacks. What we need is aggressive public education through seminars and webinars for people who have questions about their hospital experience. http:nursetom.com
