Malpractice suits-A Constant Threat
A black cloud hangs over the heads of doctors from the day they treat their first patient. it's the threat of a physician malpractice suit. Patients deserve compensation for actual instances of malpractice, but the vast majority of litigated malpractice cases find in favor of the physician. Meanwhile, the malpractice threat poisons daily interactions between doctors and their patients.
This topic is so important that I devote two chapters to it in my book, The Locum Life: A Physician's Guide to Locum Tenens. Chapter 11: Malpractice-Avoiding Litigation and Chapter 12: Malpractice Insurance-Tail or No Tail? These chapters define malpractice and discuss effective strategies to avoid malpractice suits.

Stay tuned for Chapter 12! Your comments are appreciated.
