Rhode Island Hospital Fined for THIRD Wrong-Site Surgery

A Rhode Island hospital has been fined for its THIRD wrong-site surgery this year. The wrong side of a patient's head.

I want to leave you with this one question (and/or thought): Why should the healthcare industry not be held responsible for its negligent acts? Tort reform proponents believe that it shouldn't be; they want to limit the healthcare industry's liability (even when the negligence is clear). Is that fair? Is it just? Is it right? You decide.
