We are a medical practice office setting. Please email response to [email protected] Thank you so much, as I have searched websites and can not get an answer. Libby
Your office should hire a Health Care attorney for Legal Advice.. Remember, Avvo cannot be a substitute for Legal Advice per ToU. Good luck.
Please reconsider posting information that may identify you to the public online. A consultation with an attorney would resolve that issue, and may reveal others. My firm is interested in taking on new business clients, and would be glad to perform a full consultation.
These answers are not intended nor shall it be deemed to be the rendering of legal advise, they are given based on the information provided which is insufficient to give meaningful advise. These answers shall not be construed as part of the creation of an attorney-client relationship, nor shall it impose an obligation on the part of the attorney to respond to further inquiry. The Questioner has responsibility of obtaining legal advise from an attorney and is urged to do so.
I would need to do research to determine whether Ohio law addresses this, but you should also consider the standard of care, i.e., would it be considered standard of care to have an epipen on the premises? If so, then you could create medical malpractice risk for the practice if you don't have one available.
The purpose of this answer is to provide general information only and does not create an attorney client relationship or a legal analysis of a factual situation.
