Physician and lawyer, Dr. Barbara Golder explains the malpractice system in the United States for both physicians and patients. She covers what legally constitutes damage by a provider, what determines standard of care, how patients can advocate for themselves, and what providers can do to avoid misunderstandings that lead to lawsuits.

Top 3 Takeaways:

  1. Behind every lawsuit, there’s a patient, who whether they’ve been hurt or not, they feel like they’ve been hurt. They deserve our respect.
  2. Damage does not equal malpractice. Just because a complication occurred doesn’t mean the standard of care wasn’t followed or someone was damaged.
  3. Communication, communication! So many liability cases boil down to poor communication.
