Final Project Milestone Two: Ethical Components of the Malpractice Case

analyze a court decision in which a physician was found liable for medical
malpractice. You will focus on facts pertaining to the medical standard of care, breach of care, and causation, and you will explain how they
were applied to law. You will then use the facts of the case to identify an ethics issue and determine an ethical theory that would help provide
a safe, quality healthcare experience for the patient. Next, you will apply a clinician–patient shared decision-making model to describe how
the ethics issue could be resolved. You will also include a discussion about possible violations of the code of ethics in your given field. Lastly,
you will augment or vary the facts of the case to create a hypothetical scenario that changes the outcome so that the physician is no longer
liable for medical malpractice.
