FLORIDA MEDICAL RIGHTS ASSOCIATION

A FLORIDA REGISTERED NONPROFIT IN THE PROCESS OF BECOMING A 501C4

Florida Statute § 768.21(8) denies unmarried adults without minor children equal protection under the law and deprives the survivors of these individuals of their right to access the courts for redress as enumerated by the Florida Constitution in the case of medical negligence causing death.

 
This statute has been dubbed Florida’s Free Kill law.  Effectively if you are not married and have no minor children and a medical provider commits a grossly negligent act that causes death, there is nobody who can address the court on your behalf to seek justice. 
 
Consequently, in Florida, if a medical provider makes an error and has the ability to correct it, thus saving the patient, but saving them might mean a costly lawsuit, they can easily choose to let the patient die, since death means no possibility of a lawsuit with respect to people in this category, hence the name Free Kill.
Florida is the ONLY state with this law.

“First Do No Harm” Public Service Announcement to Premiere at Harkins Theaters

HOUSTON, TX, September 16, 2016 – The first public service announcement (PSA) has made its way to the big screen at Harkins Theatres in Dallas, Oklahoma, Minnesota and California, presented by The National Medical Malpractice Advocacy Association. This is a timely public service announcement that depicts our present medical system, after the creation of “Tort Reform.”

The malpractice continues to cause system disruption in America. Changes in practices and procedures, legal barriers, and relationship stress between physicians, personnel and patients are causing rapid deterioration. There has been a constant change in best practices for medical care and the systems of delivery have become more complex and for profit than in past years.

“First Do No Harm” will premiere on Friday, September 16, 2016 at continue to air until October 13, 2016, just before the Code Blue Conference-Breaking the Code of Silence, October 17-19, 2016 in Galveston Texas at the luxurious Hotel Galvez Resort & Spa.

The goal of this PSA is to educate America about the devastating effects of preventable mistakes in America. Preventable mistakes are the 3rd leading cause of death in America and it affects the young as well as the old. “It is time to increase awareness and accountability” says Deirdre Gilbert, National Director and this is how we place a voice on the pain of this nation.
