This work sets out to show physicians, dentists, nurse practitioners and their support staff (office managers, receptionists and assistants) how to protect themselves from threats of potentially damaging legal actions through the application of a few important rules. The material presented should also be useful for healthcare lawyers, managers, students training for careers as responsible healthcare providers, and patients who want to know that their physician maintains the highest standards of good practice. It provides the general reader with a behind-the-scenes look at the daily life and challenges of a doctor.
