One of the legislative changes that many states need to enact is to require a minimum amount of insurance for all medical professionals, hospitals and nursing homes. It appears to me that the states are going to catch up fast with these nursing homes that are hiding all of their assets and keeping inadequate insurance limits. The bottom line is that the tort reform medical malpractice "crisis" has been a massive sham that has used falsehoods to influence the public.
