PTs and Patient Non-Compliance
Presented by Jennifer L. Flynn, CPHRM, Lynn Pierce, BSN, RN, CPHRM
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2973 Level: Introductory2 Hours
Patient noncompliance can come in many forms: unwillingness to follow a course of therapy, repeated missed appointments, rejecting treatment recommendations, reluctance to take medications, refusal to provide information or chronic late payments. If left unchecked, such conduct may result in litigation. The objective of this presentation is to enable Physical Therapists with strategies to not only recognize these patient behaviors but also take steps to reduce the likelihood of malpractice claims. Using selected claim scenarios, PTs and PTAs can examine their own current risk control practices in relation to the claims and losses experienced by their peers.
