Ritter family’s malpractice suit

The family of John Ritter has sued Burbank’s Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, charging failure to diagnose and treat the late comedian’s aortic dissection in timely fashion, and medblogger Galen reacts in a less than sympathetic manner (Sept. 9, strong language; “Ritter family files wrongful death lawsuit”, SignOnSanDiego, Sept. 9). KevinMD (Sept. 10), Sydney Smith (Sept. 10) and Chris Rangel (Sept. 11) also weigh in, and the latter adds thoughts about the hospital death of Bee Gees member Maurice Gibb.
