LNC's NEED HELP WITH Q

  1. even if there is evidence showing a healthcare provider did not perform to appropriate standard of care, he will not be held liable for injuries if:

    1) injury sustained was the result of an intervining cause and not the negligence

    2) plaintiff's injuries would have not occured but for the defendant's negligent conduct.

    I am believing it is 2.. please advise

    Thanks

    Hello, Monica,

    This is what #2 is stating:

    The patient would not have been injured if the nurse was not negligent.
