Prolonged Pandemic Strains Health Care Providers, Heightens Error Risks | Burns & Wilcox

More than a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, the relentless pressure on health care workers continues to exact a toll.

 

“Unfortunately, there is a great possibility of litigation surrounding pandemic-related overcrowding and access to care. Almost 2 years into the COVID pandemic, we still witness widespread instances involving very ill individuals having to wait hours and hours to receive the level of care they required or hospitals not able to provide elective procedures; when there are those types of delays, the potential for harm to patients escalates.” –Karl Olson, Vice President, Professional and Management Liability Practice Leader, Burns & Wilcox Brokerage, San Francisco, California
