July 1, 2004 Letters

first_img July 1, 2004 Regular News July 1, 2004 Letters Attorneys v. Physicianscenter_img Something is seriously wrong in the state of Florida when the top professions resort to a battle of constitutional amendments to protect their interests.During the 2003 legislative session Florida physicians attempted to obtain a cap on noneconomic damages in medical malpractice awards as a means of limiting medical malpractice claims and reducing insurance costs. The Florida trial attorneys responded with two constitutional amendments designed to strip a surgeon or physician of their medical license if they have had three or more successful malpractice claims against them and to force all surgeons and physicians to charge their lowest charge for any service to all patients. These amendments will have the effect of causing a number of physicians and surgeons caring for high-risk patients to be stripped of their medical licenses and many primary care physicians, who are barely making enough to survive, to close their practices. It will be difficult to attract replacement physicians in this legal environment.In 2004, Florida physicians filed a constitutional amendment to limit the amount of contingency fees trial attorneys will be able to obtain in medical malpractice claims as a means of addressing their concern with malpractice issues. The Florida trial attorneys responded with a constitutional amendment to do away with peer review and incident reporting confidentiality. The amendment limiting contingency fees is a matter of concern to trial attorneys. But, they can be creative in their contracts with clients and still serve their clients and receive compensation that satisfies their needs. The loss of peer review and incident reporting confidentiality will have a dramatic effect on risk management and preventive measures in the hospital environment and result in a decrease in the quality of medical care.This battle of amendments does no one any good. The physicians have real concerns about malpractice issues. The trial attorneys’ amendment responses do nothing to address these issues. They do the opposite by forcing physicians out of practice, making the state an unattractive legal environment in which to practice and by limiting the ability of hospitals to adequately do risk management and preventive care.Constitutional amendments should be used to protect the rights of individuals, not the perceived interests of professional groups.
