The irony of modern medical care is 9/10 times medical negligence is defined in terms of acts of omission in required level of care . In reality most medical negligence acts are related to knowingly overdoing a futile diagnostic or therapeutic modality.
This irony was never understood by the public, the professionals or even the judiciary .This remains the most dangerous issue facing modern medicine !
Finally some light is appearing in the horizon . A Missouri Cardiologist is suspended for overdoing things he knows best . . . namely coronary stenting !
This may bring chills over many cardiologist’s spine .
