The Summer 2017 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: “’Poor Medical Care’ Contributes to Death of Nursing Home Patient,” a case that highlights multiple deficits in care, assessment and documentation, as well as noncompliance with policies and regulations by nursing and medical providers.
- Case Study #2: “Nerve Injury from a Femoral Block Under General Anesthesia,” a case in which deviations from the standard of care result in femoral neuritis.
Both case studies are followed by a legal and risk management perspective.
