Threats and allegations of negligence or malpractice can be extremely stressful, costly in terms of time and money, and are especially troubling because it puts a veterinarian’s or veterinary technician’s livelihood at risk.
Complaints and grievances filed with a court or with the State Board of Veterinary Medicine can be made for a variety of reasons and can come from various sources - a client, associate, employee, or employer. Each of whom might simply threaten taking legal action, without actually doing so.
VetCounsel helps veterinarians and veterinary technicians take proactive measures, as applicable, to guard against the potential for allegations of negligence and malpractice claims - in ongoing efforts to protect your licensure, your goodwill, and your reputation in the community.
Examples of our services include:
- teaching/training skillful medical record-keeping habits,
- providing clinical templates and forms for many types of client situations (such as informed consent, releases, waivers, intake, boarding, payment procedures),
- presenting interactive "Lunch N' Learn" sessions on numerous employment-/legal-related topics, and
