ABSTRACT
Acute pain management is emerging as a new and growing liability risk. Risk managers may be more familiar with pain management as a liability risk related to end-of-life issues. • Cases related to acute pain management often involve overdoses, not inadequate pain relief. • Physicians might feel pressured to refer patients to specialists, but that referral does not release them from liability. • Acute pain management cases can be more complex than end-of-life cases.
