Episode 4: Nope!

On this episode of the Standard of Care Podcast, Nick and Samantha discuss one of their favorite topics: patient refusals! We examine why patient refusals are a liability trap - how can providers walk the fine line between respecting patient wishes and ensuring that patients receive proper care? We discuss Nick’s handy acronym “CURED” (capacity, understanding, risks, education, decision/documentation). Making sure your patient is CURED protects you as the provider from liability and ensures that your patient is making an informed decision about refusing care.

Episode 2 - Inconceivable

Following up on the last episode, and further exploring why people sue, Nick and Samantha take a look at two lawsuits recently filed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Mario Bianchi and Joseph Nocero both died in incidents that occurred two months apart when both attended Philadelphia Eagles games at Lincoln Financial Field. Their deaths are allegedly a result of the poor medical response by National Event Services, the on-site EMS provider. We provide a short refresher on negligence and wrongful death claims, and discuss how paramedics and EMTs who are working events can protect themselves against liability.
