  • Social Media - It’s Pervasive, Impactful and Not Going Away

    From a young physician’s Uber tantrum gone viral on YouTube, to an attorney’s tweet that got him fired, consider other misguided actions captured on social media. As we explore the pervasive world of social media, the good, bad and ugly can surface in your claims and lawsuits. No one likes surprises in the trenches of litigation, so learning, embracing and anticipating the need to explore the social media presence of involved parties must now be the new norm, not the exception. Ethical obligations abound and guidelines must be followed but this growing frontier of information in the discovery process is not going away. From cost-effective tools, to in-depth investigations, we explore several approaches to unearthing social media information gems. Courts are loathed to forgive inattention or lack of diligence in obtaining information. It’s readily available and can be highly probative to the defense of your professional liability cases. If you don’t collect this valuable information, your opponent will, and you’ve missed a now essential element of claims investigation.

  • When Medical Negligence Becomes Criminal

    The purpose of this presentation is to expose risk managers to the potential for criminal charges being brought against a healthcare provider who is involved in medical negligence. Risk managers generally do not have experience with criminal charges. The presentation will give the learner the basics of why criminal charges may be brought against a nurse or physician. The purpose is not to make them into criminal defense attorneys, but rather provide them with enough knowledge to understand that the practitioner needs to hire an attorney. This will be demonstrated by the examination of cases that have been in the public eye and through an overview of why criminal charges are more often being sought.

We will look at some of the tactics that they are employing, as well as things that we can do to safeguard ourselves personally, as well as company and patient data.
