Nursing Alumni Group Speaker Series presents Loretta LeBar, JD.  

Risk Management: Legal Issues in Nursing Today

4:00pm Thursday, October 9, Miller Auditorium of Dearlove Hall

Loretta is the managing member of LeBar Law LLC, certified in health care compliance and health care privacy, and a member of the New York State Bar Association. Her presentation will focus on why nurses get sued and the growing number involved in litigation, either as part of a legal action against a facility, a medical practice or as an individual defendant. She will share risk management steps nurses can take to protect against lawsuits and will discuss a few recent cases where nurses have found themselves facing criminal charges and even jail terms for medication errors that have resulted in patient deaths.   The presentation will last about an hour, with a social hour with light refreshments to follow.

The SUNY Adirondack Nursing Alumni Group was established last spring with the purpose of engaging, enriching and educating nursing alumni and building a bridge to the future for SUNY Adirondack nursing students.  Nursing alumni interested in joining the Nursing Alumni Group Steering Committee can contact Jill Vogel, assistant director of the SUNY Adirondack Foundation, at 743-2244.
