A recent post from the Michigan Medical Malpractice Blog prompted me to consider how West Virginia hospitals might respond to a similar multi million gift offer from one or more of the many prominent West Virginia plaintiff's lawyer. What response would west virginia physicians take after having gone through a number of years of medical malpractice crisis, tort reform discussions and an intense debate about the impact litigation has on access to and quality of health care in West Virginia. Also, would there be any backlash from the medical staff of the particular hospital who accepts such a donation?
