  1. Malpractice claims against emergency physicians in Massachusetts : 1975-1993.

    Article - En anglais

    This study reviewed 549 malpractice claims filed against emergency physicians in Massachusetts from 1975 through 1993, with a total of $39,168,891 of indemnity and expense spent on the 549 closed claims.

    High-risk diagnostic categories (chest pain, abdominal pain, wounds, fractures, pediatric feverlmeningitis, epiglottitis, central nervous system bleeding, and abdominal aortic aneurysm) accounted for 63.75% of all closed claims and 64.23% of the total indemnity and expense spent on closed claims.

    Missed myocardial infarction (chest pain) claims accounted for 25.47% of the total cost of closed claims but only 10.38% of closed claims.

    The number of claims for missed myocardial infarction increased in the post-1988 closed claim group compared to the pre-1988 group ; fractures and wounds were significantly less frequent in the post-1988 group.

    The frequency of high-risk claims decreased in the post-1988 group, largely because of the decline in fracture and wound claims.

    The category of missed myocardial infarction had a larger percentage of claims closed with indemnity payment than without indemnity payment.

    This parameter may serve as a marker for the overall seriousness of claims associated with a particular allegation, unlike the average cost per claim, which may be skewed by a few large awards.
