After a session of frustration for those looking to change New Mexico’s medical malpractice law which medical professionals have cited as a leading reason for the State’s doctor shortage, it appears that Gov. Lujan Grisham may be throwing a “Hail Mary” with mere days left in the session.
The bill, if accurately defined below (we have no details) would address most of the serious issues around the medical malpractice issue. Session ends at NOON Saturday, so time is of the essence.
ALERT: @GovMLG announced a bill will be introduced to resolve the issue of medical malpractice caps for independent outpatient clinics by capping malpractice payouts to $1 million rather than $6 million. #nmpol
