A Los Angeles surgeon whose recent victory in an employment lawsuit against Cedars-Sinai Medical Center raised questions about the safety of the patients he once saw there was ordered this week to pay a Maryland patient and his wife $800,600 in a malpractice case. The malpractice occurred after Dr. Hrayr Shahinian left Cedars-Sinai in 2006 and began practicing at Brotman Medical Center in Culver City. In a scathing ruling this week, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge J. Stephen Czuleger said Shahinian committed fraud when he performed an inappropriate surgery on the man and then altered a pathology report to cover up his failure to remove a tumor.

Doctors reported just 301 cases of measles in the United States in 1995, the lowest number since the government began keeping count in 1912. The number of cases plummeted from 963 in 1994, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. The CDC attributed the sharp decline to more school-age children getting a second dose of vaccine. Between April 1994 and March 1995, 33% to 50% of school-age children received the recommended second dose of measles-mumps-rubella vaccine, the CDC said.

Vaccines protect children from illness and death caused by common childhood diseases. The goal, then, should be to increase vaccination rates among children, but instead those rates are decreasing because of the rising cost of vaccines and the cutbacks in federal spending. A new report from the Children's Defense Fund says that, as a result, the number of reported cases of measles, mumps and whooping cough is rising.
