Court Reviews a Summary Judgment Ruling in a Medical Battery Case

MARK W. URLAUB, as next of kin and Executor of the Estate of BERTHA WORLEY URLAUB v. SELECT SPECIALTY HOSPITAL-MEMPHIS, INC., ET AL. (Tenn. Ct. App. January 20, 2011)

Plaintiff filed this medical battery suit on behalf of his deceased mother and named as defendants the nephrologist who ordered an allegedly unauthorized hemodialysis procedure, another treating physician, and the hospital where she was treated. The trial court granted summary judgment to the treating physician who did not order the procedure and to the hospital. Plaintiff appeals. We find that both of these defendants were entitled to summary judgment and therefore affirm the trial court's decision.
