Updates and Impacts: South Carolina Professional Liability Trends


It has been 17 years since the South Carolina Supreme Court held that hospitals have a non-delegable duty to provide competent emergency room care.  We will explore how that ruling has expanded to cover other hospital departments and ways to reduce hospital exposure. We will also look at ways to limit liability through liability caps and opportunities to seek reimbursement from tortfeasors. Finally, we will address the expected next wave of litigation: telemedicine, EMRs, and mid-level providers.
