The latest edition of Dateline – the newsletter for MLMIC-insured physicians and facilities – is available for reading on our website.
MLMIC’s most recent Case Review (Winter 2016) contains a perspective on a case with both a catastrophic outcome and serious legal and risk management deficits. The case study – involving paralysis from spinal surgery – highlights not only clear and continuous lack of communication between a variety of providers but also several failures of documentation.
Our Winter 2016 Case Review includes a case study about a claim filed against a urologist who performed a robotically-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP). It not only calls into question the training and experience of the defendant, but also illuminates a failure of communication: the urologist did not disclose an error to the patient.
We’ve released the Fall 2015 Dental Dateline – the newsletter for MLMIC-insured dentists.
