Imagine that you and your manager/administrator have been served with a lawsuit related to the stay of a patient that you vaguely recall some 2-3 years ago.
The failures listed in the complaint are voluminous, covering some 3 pages. You are both stone-cold petrified. What went wrong? What am I being accused of? Why me? How am I supposed to remember any of this? How can this happen to me, a stellar nurse of 20 years?
This recording will address all of this and provide you with pertinent information to prevent this scenario in the first place!
Healthcare today is rife with litigation against nurses. There is more accountability, reliability, autonomy, and liability. The rate of nurses becoming part of lawsuits is steadily on the rise.
