Mike Frick Presented at the American Correctional Health Services Association National Conference

Mike Frick, Partner at HBS presented Anatomy of a Lawsuit in a Correctional Healthcare Setting at the American Correctional Health Services Association National Conference on March 20th, 2015 in Orlando, FL.  Mr. Frick presented an informative and entertaining anatomy of how a lawsuit can occur in a correctional healthcare setting. From an initial fact pattern, the audience will be walked through how a seemingly innocuous, every day event becomes litigation. Many interested scenarios were presented and discussed from both the plaintiff and defense perspectives, from the initial event and documentation of the same through a resolution via settlement or a trial. Attendees learned how policies and procedures, the medical record, interactions with the claimant and/or plaintiff and his or her counsel, as well as testimony at depositions and trial are all vitally important.
