No-fault malpractice

The patient comes out ahead in many cases: “All patients who suffer a treatment injury caused by medical care are eligible for no-fault, government funded, compensation (with no need to prove negligence). Claims are usually decided within a matter of days, and the package of care includes financial compensation as well as free treatment, rehabilitation, home help, childcare, and so on.”

Contrast that to what happens here, where the patient has to endure the legal process spanning several years, often ending up with nothing.
