I have to give a deposition in a malpractice lawsuit where I am might be ask to testify against my coworkers. According to my agency lawyer, the hypothetical question might be as follows:
Mr. Bancho, on this date nurse X did not document or tally the patient's input and output, do you believe she failed to meet the standard of care?
The agency lawyers advised me that I should never admit a failure to meet the standard of care by my coworkers because they can then use me to testify against my peers in court. What should I answer when I know they did a sloppy documentation?
I would appreciate your input.
