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?
