Patent madness to affect a doctor's office near you

The madness of software process patents (e.g: Amazon's "1-click" patent or Microsoft's "loading images before text" patent) is all set to affect medicine.

The next time a doctor decides that he is going to increase your dosage, of say, statins when you break your leg, he's going to get sued for violating the patent of the researcher who showed the linkage between statins and a period of inactivity.

Instead of fixing the problem with software patents, the Supreme Court is all set to unleash the craziness on yet another field.  How can the court system be this oblivious?
