Editorial policy: Our education content is created by our editorial team in partnership with qualified writers, and is reviewed by our Medical Advisory Board of doctors and other allied healthcare professionals.

Legal: It is not uncommon for the Foundation to be contacted by attorneys and families about the possibility of legal action against their healthcare provider or hospital. The Foundation does not participate in litigation in any way, either by funding cases, providing expert witnesses, or offering legal advice, nor do we encourage or discourage such actions. Our mission is to work together with researchers and healthcare providers to ensure the best quality of care. If anyone feels their case was mishandled, they should consider filing a complaint with their state's licensing board and, if appropriate, investigate legal remedies. Some doctors on our Medical Board will review medical records, but these services are generally fee-based and in all circumstances are arranged directly with the doctors. The Foundation will not forward any requests.
