Legal Issues with Charting Course for Nurse Practitioners
After becoming a nurse practitioner, I was overcome by so many fears.
- What if I get the incorrect diagnosis or treatment plan?
- What if I look stupid in front of my colleagues?
- What if I get sued in a malpractice case?
- What are the legal issues with charting I should worry about?
Unfortunately, some nurse practitioner get sued for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Sometimes a patient will have an abnormal presentation to a disease. The patient may be more likely than other patients to sue. Or it may just be a bad situation.
While no nurse practitioner is immune to getting sued, there are a few things we can do to prevent a malpractice cause from having a negative outcome.
That is why I created The Legal Issues with Charting Course to teach nurse practitioners how to prevent a malpractice suit and put their mind at ease regarding legal issues of charting.
This online, self-study course will teach you
- Common reasons healthcare providers get sued.
- What actually makes a valid malpractice case.
