Mark Whitmore will present Hot Topics in Medical Malpractice at the Minnesota State Bar Association Health Law Section seminar on Friday, October 11, 2019.
The Minnesota appellate courts have issued several recent decisions that could have a significant impact on the scope of medical-malpractice liability for individual providers and health systems.
In April 2019, the Minnesota Supreme Court issued a decision in Warren v. Dinter, which held that a physician/patient relationship is not a required element in a medical malpractice claim and left many open questions about the potential liability for informal consultations. In July 2019, the Minnesota Court of Appeals confirmed that hospitals and health-care entities are not vicariously liable for the acts or omissions of non-employed physicians, and the Minnesota Supreme Court has granted review. Mark will lead a discussion of these two cases, and the impact of these decisions on health care providers in Minnesota.
