Malpractice Risks: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly


What you don’t know can hurt you. As an individual caregiver, any time you discharge your professional obligations to treat a patient, you put yourself at risk of being blamed for failures in outcome. Importantly, you do not have to have actually committed malpractice to be sued for malpractice. And if you don’t have malpractice insurance, your personal assets may very well be subject to attachment and sale to satisfy any judgment that might be rendered against you. This presentation focuses on the “man behind the curtain” in malpractice litigation, and what you need to know in evaluating your risks, and whether the benefit of malpractice insurance is offset by the cost.

Successful completion of this course requires a score of 70% on the post-test.
