Legislation: Docs should be able to say 'sorry'

Providence Business News, January 27, 2012

A Rhode Island state representative wants it to be OK for a doctor or other health care provider to say "sorry" without the threat of legal repercussions hanging over their heads. "Saying 'I'm sorry' is most often a way to express compassion or sympathy to another individual," said Rep. Joseph M. McNamara, D-Warwick.
