Talk Studio: Integrating Nurse Practitioners Into Medical Practices

MLMIC Insurance Company is proud to present the latest episode of Talk Studio, a video series on important and trending issues in professional liability, healthcare law and risk management.

Here, MLMIC attorneys Nancy May-Skinner, Esq., and Brian Felton, Esq., discuss recommendations for integrating nurse practitioners into medical practices.

Felton cites a recent inquiry from a MLMIC policyholder who had questions about teaming up with a nurse practitioner. He recaps what is and isn’t required in such a relationship, and he describes factors—such as documentation, credentials and registration—physicians should keep in mind when considering a collaboration with nurse practitioners. The segment also touches upon risk-management best practices for such scenarios.
