Event: Psychiatric Malpractice. Do Psychiatrists Need A Professional Judgment Rule?
The Weaver Institute for Law and Psychiatry Presents PSYCHIATRIC MALPRACTICE. DO PSYCHIATRISTS NEED A PROFESSIONAL JUDGMENT RULE?
The Ohio Supreme Court established a special “professional judgment rule” as the standard of care for psychiatrists in Littleton v. Good Samaritan, 39 Ohio St. 3rd 86 (1986). Join us for a panel discussion about this important topic featuring Glen Whitaker of Vorys, Sater, Seymour & Pease, who represented the plaintiffs in Littleton opposing the “professional judgment rule,” and Michael Lyon of Lindhorst & Dreidame, a noted medical malpractice defense attorney who favors the “professional judgment rule.” Our guests will lead a discussion examining the application and efficiency of the professional judgment rule.
