Last week, Dr. Stacia Dearmin joined us to share her first-hand experience with navigating a malpractice lawsuit, including the way that experience has broadened the scope of her life’s work. She shared the human experience behind this and how others within the industry take control of these situations. Today Dr. Dearmin joins the show again to discuss the nuts and bolts of how a malpractice proceeding unfolds and what to expect as a physician going through that.

Listen in as she breaks down the different roles that are involved in a malpractice suit and how quickly a lawsuit must be filed after an incident happens. You will learn what to do if you aren’t satisfied with the lawyer you’re given, why you shouldn’t alter records, and why it is usually not a good idea to speak in an accusatory way about another practitioner.
