Medical Malpractice and “Defensive” Medicine

An anonymous Texas ER doc has a blog post discussing the medical malpractice story of Christopher Jones. Mr. Jones, 33, arrived at a Los Angeles area emergency room complaining of chest pains, where he was told to sit down and wait his turn. After more than three hours, he got up, walked outside, collapsed and died of a heart attack.

The post has some great thoughts on the necessity of so-called defensive medicine. However, some of the comments, apparently from other physicians, are quite chilling.
