Preventative Legal Care: A Practitioner's Guide to Medico-Legal Fitness
Do you know the significant legal risks that you face every day as a medical practitioner? Have you ever considered how you may be able to minimize those medical-legal risks?
This easy to read book provides practical, real-world solutions to effectively manage and diminish your medical-legal risks. As a practicing healthcare attorney, Kevin W. Yankowsky has represented individual clinicians and healthcare institutions involved in legal disputes of all shapes and sizes. In his over 20 years as a practicing attorney, he has seen providers and institutions pour money into resolving legal disputes that potentially could have been avoided. Institutions focus too much of their time, effort, and financial resources on the costs of litigation defense and the expenses of settlement rather than investing time and resources on medical-legal prevention. In Preventative Legal Care: A Practitioner’s Guide to Medical-Legal Fitness, Yankowsky outlines some medical-legal risk factors unassociated with clinical care and supplies practical real-world solutions to recognize, control and minimize, if not eliminate, those factors.
