The Fine Print by Joseph Wood, MD, JD

Emergency physicians universally worry about medical malpractice lawsuits, but they should be aware of many more legal issues. This blog will cover some of those, including sexual harassment (if you're harassed or accused), wrongful termination, retaliatory termination of employment, enforcement of noncompetition agreements, whistleblower protections under EMTALA and other statutes, National Practitioner Data Bank Reports and their impact on a physician's career, and the pitfalls of treating and prescribing for family and friends.

Please share your thoughts about Dr. Wood's posts.
