CAP Malpractices

The Cooperative of American Physicians (CAP) recognizes that managing liability risk in the medical practice is critical to practice success. In CAP’s recent publication, From Exam Room to Courtroom: Lessons Learned from Real Medical Malpractice Cases, we have compiled 10 real-life case studies of physicians who have been involved in medical malpractice legal disputes. Authored by Gordon Ownby, General Counsel at CAP, these malpractice case studies impart important lessons in risk management that physicians don't necessarily learn in medical school, but acquire as they practice medicine.

From Exam Room to Courtroom focuses on three common areas of liability:

  • Physician misjudgment 
  • Gaps in communication and documentation
  • Oversights during specialist referrals
