Both Sides on Med Mal Reform

The Rogers Post links to a study reported in the New England Journal of Medicine regarding medical malpractice. Based on the conclusions in the study, Rogers remarks:

Sensible people on both sides of this issue [medical malpractice tort reform] should consider that this study demonstrates that there are too many frivolous malpractice suits but that malpractice is more common than doctors might like to admit.

Rogers is right. Those of us in favor of medical malpractice reform that would include limits on noneconomic damage awards should also put the medical profession on notice that they need to do a better job of policing themselves or face the prospect of greater regulation from the state.
