Florida Supreme Court says hospitals must warn patients about medical malpractice limits.

STATEWIDE – The AP (1/14) reported, “The Florida Supreme Court says hospitals must warn patients about a state law that bars malpractice lawsuits for birth-related neurological injuries.” Patients who receive proper notification “cannot sue but receive limited no-fault compensation if something goes wrong.” But, “the justices Thursday ruled hospitals that fail to do so can then be sued even if a patient’s doctor provided a notice required by a law designed to reduce malpractice cases against obstetricians.”
