I thought this section from the story was particularly encouraging.....

"It is important to understand that what Thailand, as a society, is trying to do is find a middle path that will provide adequate protection to members of the medical profession against unnecessary or unjustified malpractice lawsuits while at the same time promoting patients' rights in case something goes terribly wrong through negligence or unethical practices in the course of medical treatment. Both doctors and patients must also be assured that a safeguard will be put in place to prevent frivolous claims for compensation. For example, a satisfactory list of criteria must be established before a medical malpractice lawsuit can be initiated.
This issue could have wide-ranging effects on society at large, so all parties involved - doctors, patients, the general public - must continue to engage in dialogue with a view to finding a mutually beneficial solution. Doctors who perform their duty well must be free from unnecessary anxiety, while patients and their loved ones must be assured of an avenue to seek fair compensation in case of medical malpractice."

Amazing....DOCTORS' rights are being considered here? There's concern about protection of the members of the medical profession, as WELL as patients? And I note that "doctors, patients and members of the general public" are being invited to the negotiating table....with no mention of personal injury lawyers at ALL....we probably shouldn't publicize this TOO much....after all, it could spark a massive emigration of American doctors to Thailand....

I thought all the doctors were migrating to the magical states where they could be immune from consequences? What, those don't exist? The claims were false?

How surprising. Your husband's a doctor, Donna, when are you guys moving to Thailand? Or any of those other nations with legal systems you think are better? You know, the ones that provide universal health care as well? What's that, you don't want to be govt. employees because the pay isn't good enough? How surprising.
