3-1 Discussion: Reducing Malpractice Claims Jul 16, 2019 7:25 AM Hi all, If I were to address my office as a Risk manager discussing Malpractice, I imagine it would go something like this: Good morning all, I am the Health centers risk manager and we are here today to discuss Malpractice, review best practices, and how we can incorporate them into our daily routine to help reduce medical errors and potential liabilities. As professionals in healthcare, it is vital we always remember that we are responsible for our actions. Living in a litigious society like we do, those in the healthcare profession are often sued for malpractice. Malpractice, the “professional misconduct or demonstration of an unreasonable lack of skill with the result of injury, loss, or damage to the patient” (Fremgen, 2016, p. 386). These claims typically result from not following the standard of care when treating a patient. When deviating from the standard of care, it could be considered patient negligence.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
