Mr Simpson, is one of the nation's leading plaintiff attorneys who focuses on suicide as a cause of psychiatric malpractice. In this video, Mr. Simpson stresses the importance of meticulous documentation—and he provides rich details and insights that could help you in a court of law.
This video was recorded at a CME conference on August 2, 2012, at the 4th Annual SUNY Upstate Forensic Psychiatry Conference. This year, the conference focused exclusively on various topics related to psychiatric malpractice and its prevention. (See attached flier)
