RI: Medical Apology Bill Introduced

Attempting to join many other states, several state representatives in Rhode Island have introduced a medical apology bill.  Like many of those states, including PA (where a bill introduced by my state senator, Pat Vance, passed unanimously in 2013), the bill would exclude expressions of benevolence, but not full admissions of fault.  A copy of the short bill is here.
