For most physicians, talk of court, lawyers, or subpoenas brings on a rush of anxiety. The medical and legal worlds can overlap in many ways. In this five part series, we’ll cover everything from the basics, to being a percipient or expert witness, to the dreaded malpractice lawsuits. Joining us as Guest Host, is Dr. John Rose, Professor of Emergency Medicine at UC Davis.
In the fourth episode of our series, we continue our conversation with Tom Doyle highlighting what EM physicians should know about being sued and living through a lawsuit. We delve into the importance of charting, including how the EMR can both help and hurt you. And we address how to handle it when mistakes are made.
