Hospitals should insist on contracted price even when delivery is after contract expires

Hospitals should insist on contracted price even when delivery is after contract expires

Hospital Material Dollar Sign Management 14(11): 20-21

The hospital had a written annual contract with a supplier for designated goods at set prices to be shipped upon order of the buyer. These orders were generally made by telephone and later confirmed by a purchase order. Near the end of the year, goods were ordered against the contract by telephone and confirmed by a purchase order. The goods were shipped by the supplier after the contract expiration date and billed by a revised price schedule. In this dialogue, Dr. Decker discusses the legal issues arising from this situation.
