Print PDF


Illinois Defense Counsel Quarterly, 2023

In Less v. Mercy Hosp. & Med. Ctr., 2022 IL App (1st) 220247, the Illinois Appellate Court First District interpreted the Medical Studies Act’s privilege extended to documents related to patient care, not hospital security or safety. In IDC Quarterly, Edna McLain reviews the arguments made and how the court came to its narrow interpretation. Edna also reviews the fallout for Illinois hospitals and what it means going forward for safety protocols.

The article is in IDC Quarterly, Volume 33, Number 2.
