Orthopaedic Trauma Surgery: Innovations in Patient Safety
Douglas W. Lundy, MD, MBA, an orthopedic trauma surgeon at Resurgens Orthopaedics in Atlanta, Georgia, describes changes his practice made to improve patient safety based on the data and recommendations in The Doctors Company’s Orthopedics Closed Claims Study. The study revealed that most claims against orthopedists do not reflect the quality of care, but the patient’s perception of the care. Many lawsuits stem from known complications of the procedure.
