Read the article above by Capazzola. After reviewing this and other background readings, and doing independent research, address the following:

1.  What are the details of the case described by Capazzola?

2.  What was the decision of liability made by the court?

3.  While the article does not state the specific legal grounds for decision, why do you think that the hospital was found partially liable? Be sure to specifically discuss forms of organizational liability reviewed in the textbook.

4.  What safeguards could be put in place to reduce the risk of future error, and thus hospital liability?
