Superior Court Addresses Proper Pleadings for Vicarious Liability in Med Mal Case

In a recent decision in the medical malpractice case of Denmark v. Williams, 2015 Pa. Super. 101 (Pa. Super. April 28, 2015 Bowes, Donohue, Stabile, J.J.)(Op. by Donohue,
Judge Christine L. Donohue
J.), the court ruled that a plaintiff need not identify the allegedly responsible nurses or doctors in order to proceed on a claim of vicarious liability against hospital defendants.  The court instead found that allegations containing references to nursing staff, attending physicians, and other attending personnel were sufficient.
