Responsibility is currently shifted to the wrong people with populist slogans. In reality doctors can make mistakes, yes. As can any human being. And yes it is tragic if this leads to problems or even death, but making someone suffer for the rest of their lifes, not neccesarily because of neglect, but simply for doing their job is wrong in any way possible.

Doctors need to be regulated by a regulatory body of medical experts. We do not need to get money-grabbing lawyers involved in this.
