Health Law Discussion

Discuss whether a practitioner who negligently fails to make an early diagnosis is liable, even though the likelihood is that the doctor could not ultimately prevent the death of the patient. In addition, focus on the reasoning of the court that disallowing such cases to go before a jury could lead to a blanket release of liability for physicians in such cases. Do you agree? As a health administrator is this the type of policy that would benefit the facility? If so, how would it benefit the facility? Lastly, consider yourself the patient in such a scenario. How would such rules impact patient care?
