Healthcare Directors and Officers Liability

Directors and officers of healthcare providers have tremendous responsibilities to their patients, employees, creditors, bondholders, vendors and communities. With these responsibilities comes the pressure to deliver the highest quality care while also making difficult decisions to ensure the long term well-being of their facilities. These decisions could not only jeopardize the continuance of their facilities, but can also put their own personal assets at risk

Examples or Scenarios

Loss scenarios: A New England hospital sent a pregnant patient to another hospital’s emergency room without having her first examined by a physician. Department of Health officials determined that this was a violation of the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA), as unstable patients are required to be seen by a physician prior to being transferred to other facilities. Defense costs, fines and penalties exceeded $250,000.
