Being served with a lawsuit wouldn't just ruin your day. It could ruin a clinician's professional and personal life. Written for physicians by physicians, this important book concisely and pragmatically answers many of the questions surrounding medical malpractice. With an emphasis on clinical matters and a minimum of "legalese", this book shows ophthalmologists how to avoid law suits in the first place. It also examines what happens should litigation occur and provides insights into both defendant and plaintiff perspectives. Covering the legal issues for all of ophthalmology, here at last is a book that provides the busy clinician with the tools necessary to reduce the risk of lawsuits.
Dr. Kraushar is an adjunct professor at Mt. Sinai in New York, but spends the bulk of his time in private practice. Dr. Kraushar has been in practice for nearly twenty years and had published literally dozens of articles in the most highly cited ophthalmology journals discussing the issue of medical malpractice. Unusual among presenters at the American Academy of Ophthalmology because he is not primarily an academic doctor, he nonetheless has chaired multiple symposia at the AAO annual meeting on the subject.
