Risk Management Information (Springfield Based)
Residents receive malpractice coverage from both HSHS St. John’s Hospital and Memorial Medical Center for any professional acts performed within the scope of training. This coverage includes legal defense and protection against awards from claims reported or filed during or after completion of training. Insuring hospital is based on the site of any occurrence and employing hospital. A resident or fellow should never appear for or schedule a deposition without the assistance of the Risk Manager.
If a resident/fellow (current or past) receives a subpoena or notice to appear for a deposition, they should immediately contact the Risk Manager of their employing hospital.
- The Risk Manager will look into the case and determine where it occurred.
- The Risk Manager will pass along the documentation to the appropriate entity if it is not a case that occurred in their hospital.
- If it is an event that occurred in an SIU Medicine Clinic, the employing hospital will handle it.
