Question description

Week 1 - Discussion 2 – Legal Procedures

Imagine you are the in-house counsel at a local hospital.  You have been contacted by an attorney for a former patient of the hospital whose inpatient hospitalization resulted in some harm to the patient.  That harm was recorded in an incident report prepared by hospital staff.  Your review of the incident report indicates that the harm described by the attorney is consistent with the harm described in the incident report.  Based on your conversations with the attorney, you believe a lawsuit is imminent.  Since you believe it is in the best interest of all concerned to avoid the cost of litigation, you wish to consider methods of alternative dispute resolution. (Case Study, p.47)

Identify at least three methods of alternative dispute resolution for this case and discuss the relative advantages and disadvantages of each method.  Assuming the alternative methods are not successful, use Fig. 2.4 to explain the steps in the legal process to begin a lawsuit. Be sure to relate each step to this specific case.
