Massachusetts doctors try apologizing for errors

Article

Doctors in Massachusetts are being asked to apologize for medical errors as part of a plan to improve the state's malpractice system.

Doctors in Massachusetts are being asked to apologize for medical errors as part of a plan to improve the state's medical malpractice system. Seven Bay State hospitals participating in the program also will offer financial settlements before lawsuits are filed. Proponents say the initiative will increase reporting of medical mistakes and reduce litigation, thereby reducing healthcare costs and improving relations between patients and caregivers.
