Stephen P. Kroll brought this action for medical malpractice under the Federal Tort Claims Act, alleging that his deceased wife received inadequate care at the Bethesda Naval Hospital. The district court conducted a bench trial from October 31 to November 3, 1988, and denied Kroll relief. The record, briefs, and oral argument disclose no findings of fact that are clearly erroneous nor any errors of law. We affirm the judgment for reasons adequately stated by the district court. See Kroll v. United States, 708 F.Supp. 117 (D.Md.1989).
