Want to work at a hospital where malpractice caps are too low? Try Oregon Health and Science University:

The Oregon Medical Association is a doctors’ group usually on the opposite side of what malpractice attorneys have to say. But in this case, even OMA president Dr. Robert Dannenhoffer agrees that the Oregon Legislature should review OHSU’s $200,000 cap.

    Many states, including Mississippi, have lower malpractice caps at state facilities than at private hospitals. People need to realize that before going to a (public) University Hospital.

    That’s a hard cap, isn’t it? It doesn’t just apply to non-economics does it?

    About the type of comment I would expect from an attorney who derives his income from lawsuits.

    FYI in Mississippi you have a hard cap of 80k for any state owned facilities or state employed physicians.

    State employed physicians (for purposes of this law) include any physician who over 35% of their patients have Medicaid as a primary or secondary payer.
