A group like that with lawyers on all fours and coiled up like snakes ready to strike will only build the wall higher between good care for all with money and take-what-you-can-get in the emergency room. You have people who have regular check-ups and take care of their bodies' problems and then there are those that don't seek medical attention until it's too late ,their body is consumed and a Dr. is putting his reputation on the line trying to revive a hopeless case. Then you want to get behind the family and promote greed and the thought of a $ettlement. No thanks.

You are either a doctor or a republican. Not everyone is born in perfect health. More people die from medical negligence each year than those who lose their lives as a result of auto accidents, breast cancer or AIDS. When a doctor's recklessness or gross negligence kills or permanently disables a person, that doctor should be held accountable. I lost my son due to a doctors recklessnes. I can tell you that all the money on this planet cannot replace my son. What we want is ACCOUNTABILITY. We are not greedy money grubbers looking to make a fast buck. Money cannot replace lost limbs, permanent brain damage, or a human life. Shame on you.

Jackie, you are definitely a Democrat. Always on the lookout to get something for nothing and blame others for your own irresponsibility. Democrats are so easy to spot. They are the very people trying to find a lawsuit in every instance possible to make a dollar. Democrats want to take and not provide. Democratas want the people that are smarter and have made better decisions in their lives to provide for the irresponsible behavior of others who have less because of their own inaction. Getting sympathy for a son, which I am not completely sure ever existed, is like making money from a corpse. You should be ashamed of your fruitless life.

What a knuckle-dragger you are! Making money from a corpse? What a sick scumbag you are! You simpletons idolize doctors and refuse to believe that they could be incompetent. Doctors KILLED my son. I don't want money, I want ACCOUNTABILITY! If a doctor killed your family member due to recklessness, you would pat him on the back and say "Don't worry Doc, he/she was a piece of worthless shit. Good riddance." How dare you belittle my son's death; and I don't want sympathy, I want justice. YOU should be ashamed of your mean-spirited, and unbelievably cruel post.

"Democrats want people who are SMARTER and have made BETTER decisions"...you mean "smart" people like George W. Bush and Rick Perry??? It is amazing that people will fight to the death to protect their second amendment rights - the right to bear arms, and willingly give up their Seventh Amendment Rights. HOW DUMB IS THAT?? Never heard of the seventh amendment or did you ever bother to read that far down the list? Or are you all too ignorant to understand that you have given up your rights for the benefit of doctors and insurance companies?

If you want to see negligence in action in the state of Texas ever since Governor Rick Perry signed the 2003 Tort Reform Act, am posting a link to a video.

Realize that my husband's medical records show nothing was done. UTMB was too lazy to even attempt to fabricate a chart, knowing fully well they could get away with murder.

Also, realize that if the video was without foundation, UTMB, in Galveston, Texas would have my butt in court by now.

Last, but not least, when I attempted to get accountability, I begged the lawyers to make a contract stating I would sign a waiver of any monitory compensation. They so much as said, because my husband was disabled and unemployed, his life was not worth a plug nickle.(Of course they said it more diplomatically). The Tort Refrom Act made it impossible to take the case, even if they would have liked to.

Here is a link to a video and if you still are of the opinion that some of us are in it for the money, then you are never going to see reality.

Or, just Google Cleveland Mark Mitchell, then click on youtube Cleveland Mark Mitchell December 12 1950 - APril 26 2008.

Also, will be coming out with a similar video naming the doctor who dropped the ball.

People need accountability when their loved one dies through neglect, no matter how they get it. In many cases, money is not a factor or driving force behind a fight against the medical community.

Why is it sometimes, when people are drinking coffee and having breakfast while reading their newspaper, they sometimes read a headline about a person gunning down a member of the medical community? Do they think the person who did such a heinous act was wanting money? No, they were driven to do this because they needed accountability and the laws preventing them from getting it.

If an 18 wheeler crashed into your home and demolished it, wouldn't you want the driver held accountable? Or would you be satisfied with the explanation that the driver was tired and had been taking pills to stay awake, so he should not be penalized..you have to pick up the pieces yourself.

Why should doctors be coddled when their negligence kills a patient?

If anyone damages your home or auto, insurance will pay for your damages. When a doctor's recklessness or negligence kills a family member, too bad, so sad, go to hell.

Hi Jackie. I'm WITH YOU. Im so so sooooo sorry to hear about your loss.
Looks like you're fighting a losing battle here. Don't allow anyone to derail your efforts.
If you find someone that replies but just wants to banter...the FIRST thing to do is DO NOT REPLY
Thats the only way to stop them. if you don't get a good solid "yes I'm on your side" don't allow them to abuse your time.

My attempts at your cause so far are blogging at Angel of Music and Carol S. Beck from Centerville Utah on Facebook

We need to step up your strategy a bit. My son is a computer nerd and knows how to get the word out.

I would dearly like to communicate with you, but I'm afraid to post my email or mailing address or telephone number on the internet. I wish there was some way I could talk with you since it appears we have much in common.

Some of these posts are at best ignorant and at worst pure evil. I was a Paramedic for over ten years, deidcating my life to helping and saving others. I worked out daily, hiked, and have always eaten healthy and responsibly. I supported myself, buying my own home, car and keeping several investment accounts to maintain myself in an emergency. I participated in outside work teaching disaster response and preparedness to tribal and poor rural communities. I am not and never was a TAKER.

In 2011 suddenly I was diagnosed with uterine fibroids. A highly common non-cancerous tumor that has no identified cause but which symptoms can become debilitating. And that was the case for me. The surgery to remove these tumors is considered routine lasting 2-4 hours with a short 6 week or so recovery. Mine lasted 10 hours. With no explanation from the surgeon. And plenty of holes in the surgical report. I awoke without the feeling in my right leg.... nerve damage. I have suffered unimaginable humiliation, additional health problems and weight gain, isolation and doctors refusing me as a patient because they all knew that what happened to me was IATROGENIC. And they tend to stick together. I lost my job as a paramedic and all of the career prospects I was qualified for and getting my Masters degree to help accomplish. And my credit was ruined (no security clearance for me).

So please don't label Democrats (yes I am one) or anyone else as lazy and moneygrubbing, when you haven't walked in their shoes. Don't assume people have been irresponsible or ignored their health, when you haven't walked in their shoes. And for God sake, don't bash and abuse people who have already suffered enough, when you haven't walked in their shoes. Trust me, my life as I knew it is over. I have considered suicide plenty of times. And that surgeon will go on like nothing even happened. Where is the justice in that? I just want JUSTICE...

I suspect some of you will respond with malice, ugliness and ignorance. And that's the risk I take when sharing my story on the internet. But for those that do I will say this.... may you suffer and endure the hell that I have for the past two years. THEN and only then will you get it.

Thank you Alyssa for telling it like it is. Medical negligence is a topic most people are afraid of. Believe me, it can happen to ANYONE in the blink of an eye and your life is never the same. Many times, patients lose their lives at the hand of a greedy, arrogant MD whose only interest is money. After my son was killed, I vowed to hold his killer doctor accountable and am having success. Manslaughter charges are on the near horizon.

I am the recipient of medical malpractice of the worst kind - failure to diagnose. I feel the problem is less about efficiency of medical care, but more about the power of the medical system and their ability to circumvent any attempt to hold them accountable for anything. If the public can't take them to court, then what else is left for them to fear?? If they know they have a free ride, is THAT going to make them be better doctors? If medical malpractice cases are due to mistakes or true incompetence, then why not sue these doctors so they can't practice again? Is letting them continue to practice and hurt people the answer?? I firmly believe that medical malpractice, especially failure to diagnose/treat, is not due to just the doctors and staff that do it, but due to the corrupt medical system that allows and fosters it. I feel the primary flaw in our medical system is the "efficiency" they claim to need, to do their jobs, to be cost-effective, but use said efficiency (sharing patient medical records electronically without express consent) to see what previous doctors have said and done, and then maintain a consistency of failing to diagnose, for fear of implicating those previous doctors. We need to start with the privacy policies we're made to sign, and the arbitration agreements we're made to sign. Not to mention the tort reform they want us to eat, swallow, and bend over for.
