Risk Management Tip

Can't decide what resolutions to make for 2015? How about making a resolution to improve patient care and reduce liability?

We know from our experience in handling more than 20,000 claims and lawsuits against psychiatrists that your highest risk exposures are related to psychopharmacology and treating patients with suicidal behaviors. We also know that there are specific steps you can take to ensure that you are delivering the best possible clinical care, which reduces your professional liability exposure. 

Take our quiz below to help you determine if you and your patients would benefit from any practice-related resolutions.

If you answered “yes” to all of the questions, keep up the great work! If you answered “no” to one or more questions, implementing the suggested advice may go a long way in improving patient safety and minimizing your professional liability exposure.
