Liability Considerations in Collaborative Care
Can nurses be held liable for an incomplete nursing assessment even if the patient was, shortly after, assessed by a physician for the same complaint? Do you have to manage interruptions in your practice? These issues were the focus of two recent decisions from the courts of British Columbia.
Join us for a discussion of these and other cases about collaborative care issues.
