In one of his best articles ever, Jim Lewis writes about how medical mistakes happen and the need for doctors and hospitals to kick out accident prone physicians. When is a surgical mistake during an operation a basis for a medical malpractice lawsuit?  Can a hospital cut off the privileges of a bad doctor?  Why does it seem that although most doctors are caring, competent professionals, there are a few bad apples that seem to injure or kill numerous patients?  These and other questions are addressed in Jim’s strong and thoughtful piece about medical malpractice in Virginia Beach.
