Being Subpoenaed as a Health Unit Coordinator (Video)

I recently received a subpoena while working as a Health Unit Coordinator. I was subpoenaed because my name was on the chart and they wanted to speak with everyone whose name appeared on it. The case was from a patient who was in our hospital a few years ago. Needless to say, I didn't remember anything about the case.


I went to the predeposition with the hospital's attorney which was an eye-opener. He was pointing to the printed chart and was asking me why did I do this and why did I do that. I answered honestly and truthfully.


He then explained to me what to expect from the real deposition. In the end, I wasn't required to show up because my involvement with the patient was zero and my name appearing on the chart was for documentation.
