So from time to time I participate in consumer research groups on various topics/products. Usually get about 75-150 for 1-2 hours. Previous sessions have included, Smokeless Tobacco, Car Insurance, Car Technology, and Video Games. I got a survey to fill out about the lawsuit about to come down on the hospital. The questions centered around how much do you think each family should get a) If you believe the hospital knew b) if the hospital had no idea.
My answers were 500,000 per family if the hospital knew and 250,000 per family if they didn't. I believe there was just shy of 40 families.
So what do you think is a fair payout on this lawsuit?
How did you arrive at those figures?
Why wouldn't your figure be higher if the hospital knew? To me, that sounds heinous. I might say a million in that case..
Also, did you take into account that most of the patients were elderly and possibly not in the best of health to begin with?
Just curious. I have no idea what I would have put down. That doctor sounds like a piece of work, but I guess recent events have taught me I should wait until the final investigation and probable trial are complete before I go making my pronouncement from on high. Will be very interesting, that's for sure.
It's sure been at the forefront in Columbus news, but that might not count for NEO and SWO. Maybe if there was a tie-in with Urban Meyer ....
