OMS Loses a Giant

With great sadness, we announce the death of past president Dr. Jim Ingrassia, who passed away on December 20. Jim was not only a great leader for the OMS specialty but loved by all.

He fought a courageous battle against overwhelming odds. May we all face the final curtain call with such grace and dignity.

The obituary and information on donations in his honor can be found here.

Important Medical Malpractice Legislation Passes the House; Help Needed with Senate

On Wednesday evening, the House passed the medical malpractice legislation (HR 1215) that AAOMS has vigorously advocated. The near party-line vote was 218-210 with 6 members not voting.

One amendment was agreed to during the floor debate and was included in the bill. It does the following:

Allows a physician to apologize to a patient for an unintended outcome without having the apology count against them in the court of law.
Requires a plaintiff to provide a notice of intent to the physician 90 days before the lawsuit is filed.
Defers to sundry state laws regarding lawsuits and outlines requirements witnesses must meet for testimony during trial.

One amendment failed that would have given affirmative defense to defendants in health care liability cases if they can show they complied with clinical practice guidelines.

It will be an uphill battle in the Senate so our work is not done. We must support AAOMS’ legislative efforts.
