If you are a legal nurse consultant getting cases, chances are you have or will review a fall case. Falls can occur in homes, workplaces, outside, and in healthcare facilities – anywhere people walk, right?
In this podcast I focus on healthcare falls. Injurious healthcare falls are one of the most common reasons why providers are sued. Spinal cord injuries, head injuries, and fractures make these serious cases for attorneys and nursing expert witnesses.
Listen in as Pat Iyer chats about these points
- States that have regulations that govern who is qualified to act as a liability expert
- Which healthcare falls should have been prevented by the actions of the healthcare providers
- Some of the common deviations plaintiff’s expert witnesses identify
- Some examples of deviations alleged in actual fall-related cases
