10-Point Practice Saving Checklist

posted by Mike Whitmer in Risk Management on May 14, 2013

We see it often. D.C.s who think they'll never be sued. Or they think they'll only be sued if there's some huge mistake made.

The reality is quite different.

Many malpractice lawsuits result from simple oversights, poor communication with the patient, or other little things that you never think twice about in daily practice.

So how do you protect yourself from a malpractice lawsuit? NCMIC has many resources available to policyholders, including a 10-point practice saving checklist. It’s an easy, interactive guideline to help you evaluate your current procedures and implement solutions that can lower your risk of a malpractice lawsuit.

The checklist asks you to respond to 10 questions to help you determine if you are on the right track with your practice's risk management. It also provides a rationale for each area, so you can start taking immediate steps to remedy any areas of concern.

Go to the complete checklist now.
