- Sep 16 by Ellen NPI don't believe that malpractice insurers will cover this kind of situation. Termination is not the same as being sued for malpractice.
If the patient had sued then malpractice coverage would help.
- Sep 16 by Phoenix2541Thanks again for all the wonderful advice. I have contacted legal aid in Fl. Now there is the sticky matter of the would you rehire this employee? I am hoping I won't run into any issue with it. That would be a real incentive to not give a dime especially if they say they would not rehire!

Totally off topic, but you brought it up. Ever seen the pictures of the vagina and groin area of the woman who spilled McDonald's coffee on herself? The coffee was Not. Drinkable. Caused third degree burns. Totally negligent to heat coffee to that temperature (to save a buck, mind you) and serve it through a drive thru window. It's not a matter of "coffee's hot." I encourage people who know nothing about that lawsuit to do some research on it if you're going to use it in your daily life as a debate point. Maybe watch the documentary "Hot Coffee" available on Netflix. The pictures are less than 30 minutes into the movie.
