Prevention, The Highest Art, and the Most Effective Medicine


Preventing Malpractice Cases

 

Prevention is the strategy of the best Generals and the best Doctors.

 
A key principle throughout this site is that good, well communicated patient care is the pillar. Under this principle if a case worries you, you should be certain there is good patient care, and that it is documented to be within the standard of care. In a courtroom, this is harder than in a clinic. If a patient is concerned, confused or unhappy, it is appropriate to address that. But it is unwise to appear to be reacting out of proportion to what that standard needs. Being attuned to this process can be a challenge on top of the stresses of the day, but it will be strong prevention.
