MQAC Investigation Closed: Patient's Claims of Inadequate Evaluation and Treatment by ER Physician Did Not Establish Negligence

In June 2016, Justin Steiner represented an emergency medicine physician at a local hospital in an investigation by the Medical Quality Assurance Commission. The patient had acute abdominal pain and complained to MQAC that the physician was inattentive, attempted to prematurely discharge him without adequate evaluation and treatment, and delayed the administration of necessary antibiotics for the infection. MQAC closed the investigation, finding there was no deviation from the standard of care by the physician.
