There are innumerable reasons why so many Minnesotans retire in Florida. The warm climate, beaches, sunshine, golf, and favorable tax treatment are all examples. As transplants from Minnesota age, some of them spend their final years in a Florida nursing home. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse and neglect is far too common. The World Health Organization
Minnesota Medical Malpractice Attorney
In Minnesota, Medical malpractice, also referred to as medical negligence, applies to doctors, hospitals, nurses and other health care professionals. Medical malpractice in Minnesota occurs when one of these individuals fails to act reasonably or deviates from a reasonable standard of care that a similar medical professional would exercise under the same circumstances; leading to injury or death of a patient.

The reason so many doctors and hospitals in this country are not punished or do not answer for their negligent acts is because people don’t sue them. A lawsuit is the only deterrent. Minnesota medical societies do not punish doctors for malpractice, and the State does not take away their license due to malpractice. The only thing that keeps doctors and hospitals from being negligent is the fear of a lawsuit.
