Letter to the Editor: Curing Doc's Ills

Manhattan: Re "Docs need malpractice relief" (Op-Ed, March 1): Every year,7,000 people die in New York hospitals from medical malpractice, and tens of thousands more are injured. A small number of doctors cause most of this harm, but little is done to sanction them. Research shows that restricting injured patients' legal rights does nothing to help doctors with their insurance problems, let alone patients with theirs. The only way to stop insurance crises for doctors is to get better control over the business and accounting practices of the insurance industry.
