Jeffrey N. Catalano in a recent Q&A interview offered his insights on why the disclosure/apology model benefits medical malpractice cases.
Mr. Catalano touched on several important issues in the interview posted on the Sorry Works! blog, including the importance of physician accountability and willingness to apologize to patients for medical errors; why the plaintiffs’ bar should embrace early disclosure and apology; and how he first became involved in the patient safety movement.
A partner at the firm and experienced medical malpractice attorney, Mr. Catalano serves on the boards of several prominent patient safety groups, including the National Patient Safety Foundation, Massachusetts Alliance for Communication and Resolution Following Medical Injury (MACRMI), and the Collaborative for Accountability and Improvement.
