Med mal case before the Supreme Court could affect awards

Last month, the United States Supreme Court heard arguments in a case that could affect an untold number of Americans. The case before the court centers on a girl who is deaf, blind, mute and cannot walk, crawl or even sit without assistance. When the girl was being delivered, she became the victim of medical malpractice which resulted in her current physical state. She and her parents were subsequently awarded $2.8 million in a malpractice settlement.

When being a 'good' patient is a bad idea

In 2009, the New York Times bestseller list featured a book entitled "Curse of the Good Girl." The premise of this book holds that by insisting that young females conform to an idea of "goodness" characterized by politeness, selflessness and niceness, they tend to become disempowered and fail to reach their full potential. Whether or not this premise is true, a similar argument can be made with regard to patient behavior.
