Case Review

MLMIC’s Case Review newsletter, published twice a year (summer and winter), Case Review focuses solely on medical malpractice lawsuits and the medical and risk management issues involved in these cases. Each issue contains two case studies, an attorney’s perspective, and, when appropriate, a physician’s perspective.
 
The Summer 2017 issue of Case Review features the following cases:

Case #1 - “Poor Medical Care” Contributes to Death of Nursing Home Patient – this case highlights multiple deficits in care, assessment, and documentation, as well as noncompliance with policies and regulations, by nursing and medical providers.

Case #2 Nerve Injury from a Femoral Block Under General Anesthesia – deviations from the standard of care result in femoral neuritis.
