Hospitals should include clauses in contracts when renting medical equipment to patients

Hospitals should include clauses in contracts when renting medical equipment to patients

Hospital Material Dollar Sign Management 16(3): 24-25

A piece of equipment was loaned by the hospital to a patient for home use. The equipment required an electrical connection for proper functioning. The use of the equipment placed an overload on the electrical circuit in the patient's home. A fire resulted. The home was extensively damaged, the patient suffered third-degree burns, and the patient's cat was killed. In this dialogue, Dr. Decker discusses the legal issues involved.
