“The worry and anticipation of getting sued are heightened more than ever in the wake of the pandemic. It is in all physicians’ minds. I recently did a quick poll in some of my physician groups on social media, and roughly 500 physicians responded to this question: Do we need medical malpractice reform? I only had one say no, and one said it would depend. Every other physician said yes. Now, this is a small group, but I believe asking this on a larger scale would get similar results – the majority would want this. We desperately need to change, but change takes time and debate. So, what can we do now in this pandemic to avoid litigation?”
Laura Fortner is an obstetrician-gynecologist.
