The liability of an institution for the actions of employees, contractors, visitors, and trespassers is not unique to hospitals. hmos, clinics, group practices, and even individual providers may be held liable in the same way. These providers are especially vulnerable to this type of litigation because they do not have the protection of extensive quality control programs. All health care providers should carefully consider whether, and to what extent, they are involved in the types of legal relationships that may make them vulnerable to malpractice litigation.
