Is it effective to file medical malpractice litigations and the names of hospitals and physicians involved on the Internet or not?

R.J. Cleophas0, T.J. Cleophas0

It was recently debated in the media that filing names of hospitals and physicians involved in medical malpractice suits on the Internet may create incentives for hospitals and physicians to improve their quality of care. Also, with improved quality of care, it may curb the need for expensive litigations. Method: Different arguments pertinent to such a decision, in terms of effectiveness, efficacy, efficiency, and practicability, are considered. Results and conclusions: The litigation system has been documently more adequate to determine injury than negligence, and so, making malpractice data and the names of those involved available on the Internet is a hazardous plan. In terms of effectiveness, efficacy, efficiency, and practicability, there are too many counter-arguments to warrant implementing this plan.

Keywords: Malpractice, litigations, negligence, injury, internet.
