Case Review Describes Factors Leading to Summary Judgement, Settlement

The March 2019 edition of Case Review – a review of case studies for MLMIC-insured physicians and facilities – is now available for reading online. There are two case studies in this issue:

  • Case Study #1: “Summary Judgement Granted to Internist after Patient Expires.” This case explains why the defense filed a motion for a summary judgement in a suit related to the death of a patient with cardiac symptoms.
  • Case Study #2: “Lost Medical Records Result in Severe Allergic Reaction.” In this case, evidence of deficits in care and mishandled documentation result in a settlement.

Both case studies are followed by a legal and risk management perspective.
