The case can be read on the internet if you don’t have access to the book Legal Associates of Health Administration 13th Edition Please answer each question thoroughly.
Read the summary of the case of Ashe v. Radiation Oncology Assoc. on pp. 378 – 379. After reading, please answer the following question:
The case was decided on the “objective standard” of informed consent. Do you believe the outcome would have been different had the court had used the “subjective standard?” If so, why? If not, why not, and how do you think it would have been decided under that standard? How about under a hybrid standard ( applying both standards and looking at the overall weight of the evidence)?
Please explain in detail your answer and your reasoning.
