Tiffany A. Blofield Quoted in Minnesota Lawyer
Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A., attorney Tiffany A. Blofield
was quoted in the Apr. 27, 2009, edition of Minnesota Lawyer
in the article “Med-mal lawyers dispute claim state is soft on doctors.” The article comes on the heels of a recent annual ranking of serious disciplinary actions for medical-malpractice, which named Minnesota as the worst state for disciplining doctors, and focuses on reactions from med-mal attorneys.
One argument against the rankings is that the Minnesota Board on Medical Practice incorporates proactive programs for doctors in an effort to avoid disciplinary action. “The Minnesota Board on Medical Practice isn’t there just to punish doctors but to assist them as well,” Tiffany said (qtd. in Lore). “I certainly don’t think that Minnesota is soft on doctors.”
