ANA Board Updates Position on Medical Malpractice

  1. 5/02/03
    Escalating medical malpractice liability rates have created a crisis that threatens access to adequate health care services in many states and increases costs to an already financially stressed health care delivery system. The negative effect of increasing costs of professional liability insurance is impacting the entire health care delivery system, including registered nurses and their patients. The ANA Board of Directors has approved a position statement that recommends a multi-pronged approach to the problem.
