Medical Battery and Informed Consent Claims in Tennessee: Essential Attorney Practice Tips - On-Demand
Webinar now available on-demand.
Medical battery and informed consent cases are on the rise, and will continue to grow given increases in patient volume and cost-containment pressures on health care facilties and providers. Surgical schedules are tightening as deadlines for more cases press the staff. Greater volume leads to shortcuts in health care, which leads to mistaken identity, confusion, and error.
In the usual case of medical battery, the procedure is unauthorized and most likely a consequence of mistaken identity. Informed consent cases often result when the doctor relies exclusively on the hospital’s consent form to disclose the material risks of surgery, and the consent form is nebulous or woefully deficient to the extent that the patient really does not understand the risk he or she is assuming.
