"As an adjunct answer to Dr. Hoogendyk, one of the most common problems that occurs when a lawsuit is filed both prior to and after the answer is provided to the cord is the fact that the defendant physician or physicians frequently do not discuss this case and the adverse events with any of their peers. A recommendation was made to talk to your spouse or significant other as long as they are truly in a legal relationship where a subpoena cannot cause them to disclose information.

Talking to one's peers can often be therapeutic having been the recipient of multiple interactions with individuals who have had adverse outcomes both with and without suit and listening to those individuals. Analysis of the events by your peers can often be very helpful. I will not argue with the issue that it is both theoretically and practically possible that if you disclose those individuals to whom you have spoken that the possibility is that they might be subpoenaed.

I can only suggest that in most circumstances a number of individuals who the average physician who is sued can use our individuals and their hospital committee structure were discussion of a case can in fact be protected by "committee privilege" as frequently occurs in my own circumstance.

It will be of interest to see Dr. Klauwer's and Dr. Andrews' responses to some of these comments.

Since I am not a gynecologist that a physician who practices high risk obstetrics (maternal fetal medicine) I myself have been sued eight times with none of those related to what I did and only one of those suits having validity in which I testified against the culpable individual. The reality is that I learned a great deal from having been sued a long time for having gone to law school.

Communication is critical in preventing both mistakes and improving patient compliance as Dr. Klauwer indicated and it is also critical in the healing process having been sued as one goes through the legal process."

"This was an excellent, well-organized and succinct presentation on Quality and Safety Implications of Health IT in the ED.  Your lecture was greatly enhanced by your experience and expertise as a Physician, Professor and Chair Department in Emergency Medicine.   Great lecture concerning IT in the ED regarding communications related to EHR, safety, and the potential to hopefully improve health care, thus preventing safety issues.

Again, another an excellent power point with up-to-date research on Information Technology and  quality and safety implications in the ED.
