Hospitalists are physicians skilled in hospital medicine, which is any type of medical treatment administered within a hospital setting. As with any area of the medical field, a variety of scenarios may result in an unforeseen lawsuit, requiring the expert opinion of a hospitalist expert witness. Hospitals serve many different patients for a wide array of reasons. Lawsuits resemble those of any other medical field, such as medical malpractice, adverse reactions to medications, unforeseen side effects, patients receiving misinformation regarding treatment, issues with healthcare insurance, errors during surgery, or other issues related to hospital care.
Hospitalists work within a complex and multifaceted system, which requires a great amount of expertise. Hospitalist expert witnesses are often asked to provide an expert opinion on cases concerning critical care medicine and emergency medicine, as well as long term care. Standard of care is especially relevant in any type of hospital service, particular emergency care, as significant decisions must be made at a rapid pace.
