Ind. Decisions - "Indiana Hospital Not Liable in Elbow-Replacement Case: Patient claimed that Floyd Memorial Hospital should have approved an implant that a surgeon used"

One of the Dec. 22,2010 COA opinions that the ILB did not have the opportunity to summarize, Tracey L. Beswick and Ruthie Beswick v. Edward E. Bell, M.D., and Floyd Memorial Hospital & Health Services has been written up in Outpatient Surgery Magazine. A quote:

"Dr. Bell's credentials as [a] licensed, board-certified orthopedic surgeon are undisputed," wrote Judge Carr L. Darden. Indiana law does not require a hospital that credentials physicians to "engage in the detailed micromangement of medical care being provided by individual independent physicians."
