Week 6 Case Study - Healthcare Compliance
As a healthcare compliance medical-legal representative, you have been assigned to review a case on patient compliance and provide a report to the healthcare organization’s legal team. In this case, an infant-plaintiff alleged that obstetricians/gynecologists did not use proper care in their performance of a cesarean delivery, resulting in a brachial plexus injury in the infant.
Read If a Patient Is Noncompliant, Can the OB/GYN Be at Fault? Then, write a 1–2 page report in which you:
- Analyze three main points relevant to the case. Consider if there were issues in explaining the injury, and whether the defense proved that the mother was noncompliant with the care recommended by her provider.
- Argue the case as to why you agree or disagree with the outcome providing three points to support your rationale.
- In addition to the textbook, provide two sources to support your writing. Choose sources that are credible, relevant, and valid. Cite each source listed on your source page at least one time within your assignment. For help with research, writing, and citation, access the library or review library guides.
