Defending Physician Assistants

When a medical outcome is less than optimal, patients and their families are quick to blame medical providers — including physician assistants — for any resulting injuries, illness or loss of life. What they fail to realize, though, is that a less than optimal outcome does not by itself signal the presence of malpractice. Despite this, they may bring a malpractice claim that can adversely affect physician assistants’ careers and the reputations they have spent years earning.
