3rd Quarter—Ending the Physician-Patient Relationship: Ensure the Patient is Safe and your Practice is Protected

One of the most frequent issues brought to MPIE’s risk management hotline is how to discharge a patient safely from a medical practice. This program will walkthrough examples based on real-world scenarios and how to apply effective risk management strategies. Examples and templates will be emphasized as ways to standardize the process. Participants will leave with a better understanding of why it needs to be done and how to do it with risk management in mind. 

Many physicians feel that circumstances and risks surrounding professional liability or medical malpractice claims are beyond their control. This belief can be terrifying and devastating. We are going to analyze a difficult fact pattern to identify issues affecting patient safety and their professional liability implications. Preventing medical liability claims hinges upon numerous factors, but many of them, as we will see, are within a physician’s control or influence. Using expert legal insights, we will explore how sound risk management principles empower providers and protect them from the vagaries of professional liability claims.
