Reducing medical malpractice should focus on patient safety. By reducing preventable medical errors and those choices by HMOs, hospitals and healthcare workers that don't put patient safety first, instances of medical malpractice will decline.

Medical malpractice.  Medical errors. Medical mistakes.

The only way to reduce medical malpractice, medical errors and medical mistakes is to put patient safety first.  At the heart of every healthcare decision should be a simple question "how does it affect this patient's safety?'  A culture of safety in hospitals, HMOs and among healthcare providers is needed.  Its the only way to reduce preventable medical mistakes - by eliminating choices by the HMO, hospital or healthcare provider that don't put patient safety first.
