The future of walking the “sublime Irish countryside,” a huge tourist draw allowed because of the “goodwill of landowners, most of whom are small farmers,” could hold the answer for saving healthcare. A wee story in The Week reported that a tourist, Teresa Wall, tripped and sued the land owner and was awarded $42,000. While overturned in the High Court, the jury is still out whether the law will be amended to relieve Irish landowners of responsibility, or if they will close their properties to walkers. The cost of insurance for doctors and medical facilities is one part of the puzzle of healthcare reform. If doctors had to personally pay for their mistakes, would juries and courts be so quick to award huge damages? If a doctor made multiple mistakes, they couldn’t afford to practice anymore, which would be better for us all. Unfortunately, “To Err is human.”
