Negligently failed to properly train and educate staff on the use of lasers

"Negligently failed to properly train and educate staff" on the use of lasers was the finding of a judge in an article reported in USA today where the clinic was sued after a botched laser job when she was left permanently scarred. One of the two most important ways to avoid getting sued according to a recent article in the Cosmetic Surgery Times is being trained. Operators without specialty training in lasers tend to be sued more they say. The other way to avoid it is robust informed consent procedures.
