Millions of Americans trust their lives to them every day-but what happens when medical professionals turn out to be dangerously incompetent, negligent, or worse?
They are highly trained, highly paid, dedicated professionals or so we hope. But more and more often, the medical professionals who should be saving lives are instead ruining them.
Examine some of the most famous cases of medical malpractice of all time. Genene Jones was a pediatric nurse convicted in the murder of infants in a Texas hospital. Obstetrician Milos Klvana received a 53-year prison sentence for his role in the death of nine women under his care in a jailhouse interview, he tells his side of the story. Most shocking of all is Dr. Richard Dombroff, who was hit with 212 malpractice lawsuits in 8 years. The shocking details of his carelessness and greed he would operate on multiple patients simultaneously and hired unlicensed physicians to work in his chain of "Personal Best" surgery centers were revealed by former employees in court, yet Dombroff served only three months in jail.
From the slipshod physicians who put lives at risk with each diagnosis to the activist medical review boards that are seeking out new ways to protect the public, this is a revealing look at BAD MEDICINE.
