LANREMT 2011 Day 3

This morning began with a great talk by Mr. Joe Cook of the Cook Law Firm. He spoke about Louisiana laws that relate to EMS providers. He also gave us a look into the minds of plaintiffs attorneys. One of the things that will sink a healthcare provider in a lawsuit is if the records have been altered in any way after the lawsuit has been filed especially if it was done on the sly. Apparently it is common practice for the plaintiff’s attorney to instruct the family to obtain a copy of the patient’s medical records prior to the suit being filed. The records will then be sealed until afterward. Then the attorney will obtain another copy of the records and compare both sets for changes. Very sneaky.

Spent the rest of the day going to other classes and meeting people from around the state. Later in the evening I went to the Riverwalk for dinner with a couple of new friends. All in all it was a good day.
