MALPRACTICE CLAIMS DISCLAIMER

Some studies have shown that there is no significant correlation between malpractice history and a healthcare professional's competence. At the same time, consumers should have access to malpractice information. To make the best healthcare decisions, you should view this information in perspective. You could miss an opportunity for high quality care by selecting a healthcare professional based solely on malpractice history. When considering malpractice data, please keep in mind: Malpractice histories tend to vary by profession and by specialty. Some professions or specialties are more likely than others to be the subject of litigation. You should take into account how long the healthcare professional has been in practice when considering malpractice averages. The incident causing the malpractice claim may have happened years before a payment is finally made. Sometimes, it takes a long time for a malpractice lawsuit to move through the legal system. Some healthcare professionals work primarily with high-risk patients. These healthcare professionals may have malpractice histories that are higher than average because they specialize in cases or patients who are at very high risk for problems. Settlement of a claim may occur for a variety of reasons that do not necessarily reflect negatively on the professional competence or conduct of the healthcare professional. A payment in settlement of a malpractice action or claim should not be construed as creating a presumption that malpractice has occurred. You may wish to discuss information provided, and malpractice generally, with your healthcare professional.
