On November 6, 2012, Firm Partner Bill Settles spoke to a group of students in the Nurse Anesthesia Program at Clarkson College. The topic of the presentation was “Common Charting Errors”. Mr. Settles frequently teaches classes concerning medical-legal issues to nursing and medical students, residents and fellows in all specialties of medicine, and office managers and hospital administrators. Mr. Settles’ presentation explained the purposes of medical charting, described the use of the medical chart in litigation, and set forth common charting pitfalls for practitioners to avoid. The purpose of the presentation was to familiarize the students with the litigation process and to provide them with pointers that may help them avoid being sued. It has been the Firm’s experience that good charting practices are the best defense to medical malpractice claims, and we attempt to reinforce those practices to young practitioners whenever possible.
