WILLIAMS, DAVID G. JD

Abstract

Improved techniques and therapies have been accompanied by increased claims against obstetricians/gynecologists. Practice patterns that can decrease the risk of being sued are presented. Risks are addressed in 2 contexts: (1) medical risk, defined as the risk of an adverse outcome to a patient; (2) legal risk, defined as the risk of being sued.
