The Act amends the Code to provide a two-year statute of limitations for medical malpractice actions which runs from the time of injury, rather than from the time of the negligent or wrongful act or omission. The Act provides that all medical malpractice actions must be brought within five years of the negligent or wrongful act or omission.
