Webinar/Audio Conference FAQs

Under what circumstances is it permissible for a physician to fire a patient? Healthcare attorney, Heidi Kocher will walk you through a variety of situations involving termination of the physician-patient relationship and explain in easy to understand terms the right way to dismiss a patient.

Each state has its own definition of patient abandonment and you need to know the laws in yours. Significant liability can result for a physician that abandons a patient without enough notice, especially when abandonment is addressed in that state's medical malpractice laws. Heidi will share practical tips to protecting your physicians from accusations of patient abandonment. She will outline steps you can take to avoid being accused when your provider ends a patient relationship.

Terminating a physician-patient relationship is a serious matter and you must prepare for it. Learn how to end a patient relationship without exposing yourself to legal and financial stressors. Do it the right way to protect your providers and avoid having to defend the decision in court.
