How to Keep Lawyers from Circling your Health System
ASHRM On-Demand Webinar
CE Credit: 1
Domain: Claims & Litigation
This webinar focuses on how lawsuits evolve, how to prevent lawsuits from developing, and the impact of communication on lawsuits.
A doctor in the crosshairs of a lawsuit can expect to spend an average of three to five years defending his/her reputation before resolution. Those who win do not feel like winners. They just lose less. The presentation will focus on how lawsuits evolve. What motivates patients to sue? What strategies can be implemented to prevent escalation? How should one respond to a request for a refund? How should one respond to a demand for money to see another doctor fix a problem your patient believes you caused? The good news is that most such lawsuits are preventable.
- • Discuss how lawsuits against doctors develop.
- • Identify how to prevent escalation of conflict into a lawsuit.
- • Describe the impact of effective communication with patients in preventing lawsuits and how financial misunderstands can morph into a lawsuit.
