Money, Medicine, and Malpractice in American Society


In conjunction with changing economic circumstances surrounding health care in the United States since 1945, malpractice insurance has contributed to changing patterns of control in medicine. Today, inflationary pressures associated with medical malpractice are clashing with endeavors to contain costs in health care. Hay provides a thorough investigation of the development of medical liability insurance in the United States--and its implications for tort law reform and health care provision. The book transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries to provide a straightforward account of circumstances giving rise to particular forms of legal, medical, and social regulation in the United States.
