court appearance-malpractice

  1. I attended a workshop/seminar today about charting,how well documentation
    will stand up in court, the types of charting the attorney will focus on, etc. It really scared the heck out of me. I was wondering if anyone has gone to court in a malpractice suit and what that experience was really like.

    No, thank goodness; that's never happened to me.
    But I can tell you one thing: I would only answer what I was asked and I wouldn't volunteer anything.
    I would also pause before each answer.
