Question description

A patient undergoing surgery is given an anesthetic, which due to a previous treatment the patient received poses an increased risk of use because of the possibility that the anesthetic could react with her current medications. The patient was advised of these risks but consented to the anesthetic’s use anyway. As a result of using the anesthetic, the patient suffers liver damage and dies. Would this be an example of malpractice or negligence? Be sure to explain your choice. Could the patient’s family expect to receive any kind of compensation? If so, what kind?

Your response should be at least 200 words in length. Even if you use web help you must put into your own words
