When confronted by a mistake, especially one by another veterinarian, ethical dilemmas arise. There are thresholds to be considered, facts to be discovered and speaking points available for these situations. Reviewing a colleague potential error can involve speaking with the client and performing your own assessment, both of which can raise concerns on their own or collaboratively together. Client will want to be acknowledged for their pain and what happened to their animal. Knowing the right way to acknowledge this and preserve their view of your professional relationship is vital to your reputation and business.
