Pharmacy Professional Liability: Lessons Learned from an Ongoing Study of over 10,000 Claims
The Pharmacists Mutual Claims Study was started in 1989 by Ken Baker, a pharmacist/lawyer at the company. While the majority of the company's claims come from independent community pharmacies, there are claims from many different practice sites: hospitals, long term care, compounding pharmacies, and chain pharmacies. The Claims Study was started to gather the claims that were being reported and organize the information in a manner that allowed other pharmacists to learn from the mistakes. There is no other organization with access to the claims information Pharmacists Mutual does. The Claims Study today has over 12,000 records in its database, with an average of 1 to 2 such claims every day, 365 days a year.
Upon successful completion of this activity, pharmacists should be able to:
- Identify main types of professional liability claims seen in pharmacy.
- Identify common medications associated with professional liability claims and understand why they occur.
- Understand the steps in the risk management process and how to apply them to their practice.
