Our annual survey of health law cases for 2019 (click here to view) includes a number of notable decisions affecting the practice of medicine and the delivery of other health care services in Connecticut.  These include the Connecticut Supreme Court’s decision in Doe v. Cochran concerning the duty of care owed to a non-patient third party and the Connecticut Appellate Court’s decision in Wood v. Rutherford setting forth new circumstances under which physicians must obtain additional informed consent from their patients. This year’s summary also covers another Connecticut Supreme Court decision establishing a standard for resolving disputes involving the disposition of pre-embryos, two Connecticut federal District Court decisions that reached differing results on how much reliance can be placed on pre-authorizations from health plans and an update on the status of the ongoing class action challenging the placement of Medicare patients in observation status.
