Tom Baker, New York Times, Hospital Malpractice Insurance

It's irresponsible for a hospital to not purchase malpractice insurance says LDI Senior Fellow Tom Baker in a New York Times article about three New York Hospitals that have dropped their malpractice policies due to budget pressures.
 
"They're taking in these [patients] knowing they’re not able to make good on the harm they caused," said the Deputy Dean of Penn Law School and Professor of Law and Health Sciences. "Even a really good hospital is going to have a certain amount of medical malpractice."
