'Right-to-Know' Act hitting road blocks

Miami Herald, December 12, 2011

Harlan Ginsberg of Coral Springs was rushed to Margate's Northwest Medical Center in 2006 after a kidney stone attack. During surgery to remove the stone, he says, a doctor mistakenly cut a tube that delivered urine to his bladder and removed a kidney that another doctor testified was healthy. Relying on a voter-approved provision in Florida's Constitution, Ginsberg's medical malpractice attorney asked Northwest Medical to turn over its reports about other patients' "adverse medical incidents" of the type Ginsberg claimed he suffered. The hospital initially refused. Later, it agreed to search its records ? but only if Ginsberg coughed up $77,550 in advance.
