  Synced Audio / Video / Slides

Registered nurses have more professional accountability and responsibility than ever before in the history of nursing. As a result, nurses must be aware they owe their patients a "higher duty of care," and as such, are subject to claims of nursing negligence or malpractice. Join Pat as she utilizes her expertise as a legal nurse consultant for 25 years, in understanding what constitutes "nursing negligence," in ways nurses can dodge those legal bullets, and in examining high-risk scenarios (such as telephone triage) in the ambulatory environment. By examining what leads up to a medical lawsuit, nurses can reduce their liability and practice safely.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the legal pitfalls of telephone triage.
  • Identify how to effectively use computerized documentation.
  • Explain the steps in a lawsuit against a health care  provider.
