A Malpractice Crisis for North Carolina?

Record #:
In 1979, the Wake Medical Center agreed to pay $1.15 million to settle a malpractice case out of court. At the same time, a malpractice suit was filed against the Wake County Health Department alleging negligence. Both of these suits give cause to reevaluate the actions taken by the 1976 North Carolina General Assembly to ward off a perceived, impending malpractice crisis.
