I don't quite agree with part of the point you make. It might be helpful in deflecting a wrongful dismissal suit. However, in the case of a non licensed person giving harmful advice to a patient, I am wondering if you would still be resposible for the serious harm a non-licensed person did to a patient. I can just hear the lawyer making the statement, "my client would still be alive today if this person had been removed from their position at the first hint of trouble". Changes are the jury would be thinking, "yup". PS The person who wrote this is a professional and if they are comfortable dealing with it by issuing a warning it is OK by me. I just have a tendency to think of worst case senarios. Like I said this happens all the time and people for most part get away with it. I just pity the poor patient that suffers serious harm from bad advice.
