I was wondering if physician assistants can have their own malpractice insurance rather than being under their supervising physicians insurance? Is there a law that dictates one vs another?

The case needs to be investigated thoroughly, in order to determine (1) what happened; (2) should it have been preventable; and (3) which health care provider, working for what entity, could have prevented the injury.

noted that "patient denies use". I did not consent to a tox screen and I am wondering if "patient denies use" means that they 1. did a tox screen and 2. knew I was on drugs? Also, since it is in my patient history do I have any way of removing...
That record was intended to mean that the provider asked you if you used drugs and you said "no". Nothing more, nothing less. You can't get medical records changes very easily and it's as likely that trying to do so would end up with a worse-sounding entry than ever. Let it lay.See question
