Data Sharing Project
Procedure Allegations
2016-2018

 

In a review of claims reported to the MPL Association Data Sharing Project closed in 2016-2018, the most common allegations named were procedure (48%), diagnostic (33%), medication/iv fluids (7%), and administrative-related issues (4%). Incomplete/inadequate procedure and failure to recognize complication were the primary factors in more than half of the procedural allegations reported. Procedures that were not performed when indicated or where there was a delay in performance resulted in an average indemnity payment greater than or equal to $500,000.
