Understand the Legal Impact of Physician Extenders [U.S.]

Posted over 3 years ago by Nicholas M Perrino

"Those physician extenders, the term used to describe a healthcare provider who is not a physician but who performs medical activities that might typically be performed by one, have helped address the healthcare needs of an ever-increasing number of patients.

But, have they opened the door to added legal risks and malpractice?

All trends indicate that the use of physician extenders will continue to grow in direct proportion to the shortage of primary care physicians.

...the situation is not one of gloom and doom. More so, it's about awareness."
