Pending Bill Would Allow Doctors to Say Sorry

Comments Off

The Nebraska Legislature is working to allow doctors to apologize to their patients and families without worrying that it is an admission of guilt that could be used against them later in a medical malpractice case.

Sorry Works! is an apology advocacy group trying to bring bill LB373 to reality in Nebraska. Their spokesman Dennis Wojcieszak says that in the 29 states that have a similar law, it has reduced the number of malpractice cases filed.
