"And when an iatrogenic disease occurs, guess who gets sued."

You are so right. There's a fundamental injustice in suing the physician when so many others are involved in the care of the individual. Only occasionally is an injury attributable to a single indiviudal, but of course, truth and justice are not necessarily what the malpractice lawyer is seeking. This is one of my personal pet peeves (AKA ppp's).
Although, let me add, in an even further digression from the topic of the thread, that physicians themselves have contributed to this state of affairs by insisting upon the "captain of the ship" model of leadership versus a more collaborative model wherein the contributions of others are valued and widely acknowledged.
