Deirdre Gilbert of the National Medical Malpractice Advocacy Association (NMMAA). www.nmmaa.org This issue is particularly important to those of us fighting the abuse and neglect of our elderly, especially those in nursing homes and hospitals, whose doctors seem unaware or unaffected by the deteriorating state of their patients, often times resulting in death.
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), medical negligence is the third leading cause of death in the U.S.—right behind heart disease and cancer.
In 2012, over $3 billion was spent in medical malpractice payouts, averaging one payout every 43 minutes. (Forbes)
Deirdre is so fed up with doctors who have criminal history’s, including drug abuse, alcohol abuse, and lethal malpractice still being allowed to practice medicine and endangering more lives, and those doctors who just dont seem to care, along with the accompanying excuses and coverups, she wants to take her message to the streets.
What does it take to get you on your feet??
