Respond to the law question

 You are the in-house counsel at General Hospital. You have been contacted by an attorney for a former patient of the hospital whose inpatient hospitalization resulted in some harm to the patient. That harm was memorialized in an incident report prepared by hospital staff. Your review of the incident report indicates that the harm described by the attorney is consistent with the harm described in the incident report. Based on your conversations with the attorney, you believe a lawsuit is imminent. Because you believe it is in the best interests of all concerned to avoid the cost of litigation, you wish to consider methods of alternative dispute resolution. Prepare a memo for the CEO/COO of your organization to review; your memo should address the relative advantages and disadvantages of each method covered in the text, with special attention to the issues raised in the journal articles. 

Be sure to use citations in support of your assertions. You may also cite cases or information you find on your own, so long as they come from a reputable source – but you’ll still need to address the assigned articles
