LTPAC/ Senior Care and the Courtroom: Important Lessons Learned Through Litigation
Lawyers and judges and juries, oh my! In this engaging and informative hour, the presenter will review, deposition testimony, legal pleadings, and real residents' charts to provide a better understanding of the factors that lead to the filing of a lawsuit, as well as what malpractice litigation involves. Using real-life examples from actual Maryland lawsuits, you will learn how the Plaintiffs' bar exploits small errors such as gaps in charting, imprecise documentation, and delays in communication to influence the way a jury looks at care. You'll also learn about the importance of "Three Pillars of Protection" and the impact of electronic health records (EHRs). In the current environment, simply providing good care is no longer enough to protect your facility from becoming the target of a lawsuit. That's why you will also learn easily implemented tips and tricks that will help you avoid litigation and prove invaluable to your facility.
