Tort liability of clinical laboratory scientists consulting to physician office laboratories.
Using the Nebraska Clinical Laboratories Certification Art as a statutory framework and the architectural profession for case law guidance, an analysis is presented of the tort liability potential of clinical laboratory scientists who consult to physican office laboratories (POLs).
In Nebraska, the consultant, as an independent contractor, provides to the POL procedures, protocols, instruction and limited super2vi1sion, and monitoring of accuracy.
Yet, the POL staff (employees of physician's office) will implement the procedures, and the physician will use the results in patient diagnosis and treatment.
Thus, just as with a negligent architect, a negligent POL consultant's impact is indirect, requiring the acts of another before any harm is done.
