Johns Hopkins sued for human medical experiments

Johns Hopkins sued for human medical experiments

“More than 750 plaintiffs are suing the Johns Hopkins Hospital System Corp. over its role in a series of medical experiments in Guatemala in the 1940s and 1950s during which subjects were infected with venereal diseases. The lawsuit in Baltimore seeks $1 billion in damages for individuals, spouses and children of people infected with syphilis, gonorrhea and other sexually transmitted diseases through a U.S. government program between 1945 and 1956. The suit claims Johns Hopkins officials had ‘substantial influence’ over the studies, controlling some advisory panels, and were involved in planning and authorizing the experiments. An attorney for Hopkins calls the suit ‘baseless.’ A Hopkins spokesperson said in a statement that the institution ‘did not initiate, pay for, direct or conduct the study in Guatemala.’ Hopkins confirmed that faculty members took part in reviewing funding applications, but said this did not warrant a lawsuit against the medical center.” Source: CBS News

According to Wikipedia, the Guatemala study was led by Dr. John C. Cutler of the U.S. Public Health Service, who also participated in the Tuskegee syphilis experiment.

  2. The lawsuit against the John Hopkins Hospital seems to me to be less justified that the law suit against the US Government. Could a billion dollars be squeezed out of this institution anyways?
    How much could be squeezed out before John Hopkins Hospital(s) would have to close its doors?
    How much could be squeezed out of it before the level of care that it provides had to be lowered?
    If the institution is caring only for wealthy people should anyone care if the standards are lowered?
