The Law Med Blog
Many of you readers are entertained by the foibles of so called medical professionals. If you do a search under "medical malpractice" on this blog, you'll find a list of some pretty appalling cases of doctors gone bad. Unfortunately for me and the profession, there are just too many stories of doctors and nurses who show a dereliction of duty or just have questionable personal lives to cover. I recently found one blog that seems to report these tales pretty extensively. I've listed it under My Blog List. It is the Law Med Blog. Here you'll find multiple entries on doctors behaving badly, such as the North Dakota surgeon who is accused of using propofol as a date rape drug, or the North Carolina anesthesiologist who likes to expose himself in public to unsuspecting women. Horrible, yet fascinating at the same time. I'll continue to post stories about malpractice cases that I find particularly interesting and relevant but if you want the dirty laundry on medical care in America, head on over to the Law Med Blog. You'll wonder what kind of people make it out of our medical schools.
