Second District: Undertaker’s Doctrine

In this case, a technician tending to an implanted spinal cord stimulator observed a discharge and informed a physician of the circumstances. The technician had a nursing background but was not employed to provide nursing services. The condition deteriorated and the patient became paralyzed. He then sued the technician and her employer for nursing negligence, asserting that her actions in observing and assessing the plaintiff’s condition constituted the practice of nursing and, based on the undertaker’s doctrine, obligated her to do more.

Was the technician obligated to do more? A trial court granted a summary judgment in the defendants’ favor. On appeal, the Second District affirmed. The appellate court explained that the technician’s actions did not increase the risk of harm or cause other people to refrain from rendering aid.
