As more and more practice "independently" then the lawsuits will follow. Seems like I heard a malpractice presentation not that long ago that indicated that "independently" practicing CRNA malpractice rates are on the upswing.Suprised that we seem to be near EM from the abstract (I didn't read the full article).
EM is a tough field in the sense of having to know a lot and handle anything that can come in (and may be waiting in the parking lot).
I am not anti-CRNA per se, but I wonder how they would fare solo in this litigous environment, especially with so many lawyers looking for a better job.
The thread is worth reading. Sevo, like the cat picture.Just wanted to bump this thread so you guys can read the experience of one of the members here on SDN:
Even if you don't get successfully sued... it is a big pain to have to deal with a lawsuit.
