  •  Perhaps his test wasn't read till we called. (7+ / 0-)

       The Cardiologist had to cover his but,so he downplayed the severity of the test. I think there may be a complacency problem...they have done these procedures for so long and so often..that a certain apathy and laziness sets in.

      he could not downplay a test as if sued he must turn over everything in a patient's file during discovery. If it were serious any professional would see that. I have a friend who is a nurse who also works with attorneys on medical malpractice cases. Sometimes there's nothing there; sometimes it's amazing no one has begged to settle.
