WEBINAR | What Popovich Means for the Future of Medical Malpractice Liability in MN

Program Description:

In the recent decision of Popovich v. Allina Health, the Minnesota Supreme Court held that hospitals may ultimately be liable for the actions of providers who are not employed by the hospital but instead provide care under an independent-contractor arrangement.  This expansion of liability in professional negligence cases has a number of implications for our health systems, hospitals, and independent provider groups.  This presentation will outline the legal liability landscape before and after Popovich and discuss the potential effects of this decision in the health care industry.
