When the Stress of a Claim Is Overwhelming
We get it. Dealing with an allegation after you've done your best for your patient is emotionally stressful. There is even a term for this stress, it is called "litigation stress" or "Medical Malpractice Stress Syndrome (MMSS)."

The stress can manifest itself as:
- An inability to concentrate
- An inability to cope with everyday tasks
- Self-questioning of your overall clinical expertise
And, it can take a toll on:
- Your relationship with your other patients
- Your family
- Your staff
