Avoiding Claims of Negligent Hiring, Supervision, or Retention in Hospital Abuse Cases

When a hospital (or other healthcare facility) employee is accused of a criminal act, be it sexual assault or physical abuse, plaintiffs’ attorneys will almost always attempt to formulate a theory of liability against the hospital to name the deep pocketed employer as a defendant.

This webinar will discuss the common scenarios that occur in a hospital that can give rise to such claims. It will also discuss steps that hospitals can take to avoid being vulnerable to such claims, how to investigate the claims, and how to challenge the claims legally.
