LearnScape One: Hospital Nightmare A negligence lawsuit has recently been filed against your facility. It filed by a woman who developed a staph infection and subsequent negative health effects, including an autoimmune disease, after surgeons did not change gloves between examining patients in post-surgery. You will need to gather information about the incident from the parties involved, and work with the General Counsel to determine the Hospital’s liability. You will need to consider whether a duty to care was established, whether the duty was breached, whether the patient was injured due to negligence, whether the concept of Respondeat superior applies in the case, and whether to file an indemnification against any of the staff members involved.
LearnScape Two: Medication Errors In this LearnScape, you are presented with a negligence case stemming from an infant’s death in the NICU after an antibiotic overdose prepared by the hospital’s pharmacy. The student will interview staff members and work with the General Counsel to analyze the four elements of negligence (duty to care, breach of duty, injury, and causation) in order to determine the hospital’s liability.
LearnScape Three: The Wrong Body Part In this LearnScape, you will be asked to examine a negligence case stemming from an incident in the hospital operating room. A male patient, Mr. Price, had the wrong leg amputated, despite working with the surgeon to follow all of the proper procedures before the surgery. You will analyze this case from the standpoint of the legal concept Res Ipsa Loquitur, and work with General Counsel to determine the hospital’s liability.
LearnScape Four: Failure to Obtain Consent You are presented with a negligence case in which a patient, Mr. Davis, specifically denied consent to insert stents in order to relieve a blockage in one of his arteries. Despite this, two stents were placed during a follow-up cardiac catheterization procedure, even though his radiologist specifically recommended that there was no need for either measure. You must work to address the legal issues and determine the best way to move forward.
