Summary:

Legal issues are as much a part of the medical landscape and decision-making process as history and physical exam, yet legal concerns in EMS differ to a certain degree from those in other branches of medicine. This course will explain the unique legal issues that confront EMS providers and offer suggestions of how they can improve patient care and avoid legal entanglements at the same time.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to educate and inform EMS providers of the ways the legal system specifically affects them and how to improve patient care while avoiding litigation. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to
  • Identify areas of the law relevant to EMS
  • Discuss actions that are most likely to result in litigation
  • Describe practices that improve patient safety and care while limiting the provider’s exposure to lawsuits
