A celebrity malpractice case

Here is a perfect case of medical malpractice. I am sure everyone has read about the doctor who treated Michael Jackson when he died. This doctor not only administered medication to Mr. Jackson that he should not have, but left him alone to make phone calls while doing so.

Finally, prosecutors are preparing to indict Mr. Jackson's doctor, on a charge of involuntary manslaughter. The doctor will be prosecuted for gross negligence - his treatment was not the standard followed by other doctors. The doctor is claiming he did not prescribe or administer anything that would have killed Michael Jackson. He administered a drug that is used in hospitals - not at home.

The prosecutors must show there was a reckless action caused by the doctor, which created a risk of death. It will be decided whether the doctor has the expertise to administer this powerful drug, propofol - the drug believed to have killed Mr. Jackson. Propofol should be administered by an anesthesia professional in a medical setting - not by a cardiologist.
