Physicians Outraged Because Florida Lowered Quality Standards After Hefty Political Contribution

CNN reports in 2,000 words that a group of pediatric cardiologists in Florida is claiming that the state changed its policy, “putting thousands of children with heart defects at risk,” after Tenet Healthcare contributed $200,000 to Republicans in Florida. One Tenet hospital “had failed to live up to state quality standards for children’s heart surgery,” but after a contribution to Republican Gov. Rick Scott and his party, “the state decided to get rid of those standards.” The physicians “argued that the quality standards have been in place since 1977, saved children’s lives and had become a model for other states.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
