PARADE REGRETS IT CANNOT ANSWER QUERIES ABOUT THIS COLUMN. EDITED by LLOYD SHEARER In the next five years" one out of every three U.S. surgeons will he sued for malpractice. So predicts the American College of Surgeons, "based on a survey of malpractice claims in the '60's. . Over 40 percent of the surgeons surveyed by the ACS reported at least one malpractice claim in the '60's. Hardest hit were orthopedists, neurosurgeons, and plastic surgeons, who averaged more than one claim each. Fifteen percent of the claims, the ACS says, were only idle threats, and 90 percent of the remainder were settled out of court. Of those claims settled in court, however, 80 percent resulted in a verdict for the patient. Ten percent of the claims were settled for more than $100,000, the majority of the others for under $10,000. While admitting that malpractice suits may "be provoked by poor surgical results, the surgeons also blame lawyers who encourage patients to sue. Furthermore, they say, patients may be inclined to sue because they feel badly after an operation, whether or not there was any surgical negligence. More than half the surgeons in the ACS poll report that they now try to protect themselves against suits by practicing "defensive medicine"-ordering more tests and consultations, proceeding more cautiously before sur- gery. Others, however, say they have omitted or restricted certain procedures, such as emergency operations, which are particularly susceptible to suit. Beau Brummels and other dandies who are deeply interested in the clothes they wear, may be intrigued by a recent announcement from Kilgour French Stanbury, London tailors who cater to royalty. Mr. Edward Tremble, sales manager, pridefully explains that Kilgour French is now turning out suits made of a new cloth called "multimillionaire." Suits of multimillionaire fabric retail at f775. In World War II the most famous house in Berlin was known as "Kitty's House." ·It was a brothel run by Frau Kitty Schmidt, and it boasted the most beautiful girls,the most impeccable service, and the best food in Europe. Distinguished soldiers, statesmen, and industrialists used it from time to time to forget about the war, not knowing that the Gestapo had bugged the entire residence with a then new German invention, the tape recorder. A motion picture company now wants to make a film to be called "Kitty's House," but Kitty's daughter won't hear of it. "Money isn't everything," she says. "I will not have the memory of my mother defamed." PARADE · AUGUST 13, 1972
