Failure to insist on EMS transport

This is an actual TMLT medical malpractice case. It involves a family physician treating a patient with chest pain. This presentation illustrates how action or inaction on the part of the physician led to allegations of professional liability, and how risk management techniques may have either prevented the outcome or increased the physician's defensibility. The case has been modified to protect the privacy of the physician and the patient.
