More Doctors Going to Jail for Gross Negligence

In a recent issue of the Medico-Legal Journal Alec Samuels observes: “A finding of civil negligence is bad enough; a verdict of criminal negligence is truly tragic.”

“There are not many prosecutions . . . however, prosecutions are now more common than before.”  He reviews several recent cases.  I will be collecting the U.S. cases later this year.
