553 Nurse Practitioner Liability Hot Spots – Rebecca Paschall

Nurse practitioners (NPs) play an essential role in primary care and other medical settings. Increasingly, they are being named as defendants in malpractice suits. Rebecca Paschall, who both works as an NP and a legal nurse consultant, shares her experience in these areas of expertise. She learned that her LNC work deepens her diagnostic and analytical abilities in her clinical work.

Rebecca also finds many opportunities to instruct other clinicians on her job about best medical practices.

She finds that the most common medical areas in primary care involve failure and delay in diagnosis and misdiagnosis. Within that umbrella, cancer, diabetes, sepsis, and cardiac issues assume primary importance. Rebecca believes that a problematic case requires discussion with other clinicians and often consultation with the supervising physician.

Also, Rebecca emphasizes that it can be essential to get the physicians to state circumstances in which they want to be consulted or to see diagnostic test results and other critical data. This for her is part of an overall emphasis on good communication among all employees in a primary care setting.

Nurse practitioners who want to pursue LNC work will find many opportunities in this field. I know you will learn much from this glimpse into this world.
