Kaiser Health News: When Something Goes Wrong At The Hospital, Who Pays?
Kaiser Health News staff writer Shefali Luthra reports: "When Charles Thompson checked into the hospital one July morning in 2011, he expected a standard colonoscopy. He never anticipated how wrong things would go. Partway through, the doctor emerged and said there were complications, remembered Ann, Charles’ wife. Charles’ colon may have been punctured. He needed emergency surgery to repair it." (Luthra, 11/11)
