Project #45093 - Case Study for standard of care

 

A 20-year-old male patient arrives at a Level One Trauma emergency facility (capable of caring for virtually any emergency). The patient has multiple gunshot wounds and has lost a lot of blood. Examination and stabilization begin immediately, with an emergency room staff physician and several nurses involved. The patient is transferred to an operating room, where surgery begins, involving a general surgeon, a cardiac surgeon, and several nurses and assistants. The patient dies while on the operating table during surgery. A few months later, the patient’s family sues the hospital and all physicians in the case for negligence. You are a hospital administrator looking into the facts of the case. What would you look for to answer each of these questions:

 

  1. What is the custom-based standard of care for this case?
