Image for On the podcast: Avoid these common mistakes when releasing patients from your care The May episode of NCMB's podcast, MedBoard Matters, focuses on the difficult and delicate topic of dismissing patients from a medical practice. NCMB receives calls from patients on a weekly basis indicating that a practice has released them from care without providing appropriate refill prescriptions or fulfilling other professional obligations to patients.

The podcast reviews NCMB's position on a clinician's professional obligations when ending the clinician-patient relationship and discusses common missteps that can result in frustration, confusion, patient harm or even an investigation into possible patient abandonment.

Listen now to make sure you are handling patient dismissals appropriately and make sure to share the information with your front office staff!
