Enzi Pushes Reform Measure

Washington D-C –
Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi introduced legislation that is similar to a bill passed in the state legislature. Called the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement act it is intended to get better information on health care errors. Senator Enzi says without it, Doctors will be afraid to talk about near misses and other problems.
Enzi says this is one more reason why there needs to be an overhaul of the country's medical litigation system.
