ethics and healthcare

2 to 4 pages

You are working as the manager of a multi specialty clinic. You have been notified that a patient has filed a lawsuit against one of your physicians that has terminated a relationship with a patient. Executive management has asked you to prepare a memo to describe whether a patient can make a successful claim for a breach of contract in this case.

In this 2–4-page memo, discuss whether the physician-patient relationship is a contract and what needs to be shown for a breach of contract to have occurred.
