I'm just going to post a scenario based question relating to nursing and the law. In regards to being called as an expert witness, who can be the E.witness? Can you refuse? What information is the expert witness entitled to? The scenario is not 100% clear to me (may just be the wording) Scenario: A colleague of yours has been summoned as an expert witness following an adverse event in the hospital, in which she is employed, and the plaintiff is suing for damages. She has many questions and understands that there are claims of harassment by the patient’s family involved, following this adverse event. a) Explain the term vicarious liability as it applies to this situation d) What constitutes harassment? What is the role of an expert witness?
