Referring Doctor Not Liable

In a decision that may provide some level of comfort to attorneys who refer persons to other counsel, the Delaware Supreme Court has held that a doctor who refers a patient to a specialist for treatment is not liable for the specialist's medical malpractice. The referring doctor had transferred full responsibility for the patient's care to the specialist. (Mike Frisch)
