Moore v. Saint Joseph Healthcare, Inc.
2008-CA-002340 11/06/09 2009 WL 3672900

Opinion by Judge Stumbo; Judges Thompson and Wine concurred.

The Court affirmed a summary judgment entered in favor of the appellee hospital on appellant’s claim that the hospital was negligent in failing to obtain informed consent before administering a thrombin injection.

The Court held that the trial court properly granted summary judgment after finding that appellant’s written consent to an ultrasound compression encompassed his consent to the injection. Further, this finding comported with KRS 304.40-320(2).
