Legal aspects of health care management, Other Management

1. What is meant by the term "standard of care" in the context of medical liability? Provider examples as to the application of this legal term. How is this standard determined and defined in the health care field? Are you satisfied that it protects both patients and health care providers or neither and why so?

2. How is the doctrine of "respondeat superior" and vicariously liability used by health care facilities to impact the behavior, quality and performance of "independent contractor" medical staff members at such facilities? Contrast with any applicable legal standards applicable to salaried members of the medical staff. What is meant by "hospital corporate liability?"

3. "Patient self-determination and autonomy are under the law ancillary and derivative from the well-articulated right of privacy. Under this well established right, procreative freedom, the right to refuse any medical care no matter how beneficial, the right to terminate one's life and legal immunity for doctors supporting or implementing such patient desires are all set out with clarity." Accept or reject with specific examples.
