Mal praxis en el equipo médico

Resumen


MALPRACTICE IN HEALTH CARE TEAMS

To be successful, modern medical acts require the participation of several professionals and assistants and, as such, there has been a steady trend from individual medicine to the collective practice of the profession. This format raises issues in determining when a medical professional or other practitioner is liable for the acts of a colleague. This thesis proposes to resolve the problems involved in the collective practice of medicine by restricting liability to a physician responsible for another practitioner, only to those cases where he/she has been willingly introduced into the medical act.
