Principal Philip Michels and Of Counsel Steven B. Stevens authored the article, "Does Anyone Read These Things? Boilerplate Hospital Admission Forms," published in OC Lawyer magazine. The article discusses hospitals' efforts to shield their liability for substandard care through the Conditions of Admission forms, specifically in the "Legal Relationship" clause. In a medical negligence action, the hospital will contend that this paragraph, placed within the standard form, is sufficient notice to the patient to absolve it of responsibility for the negligence of their physicians. Mr. Michels and Mr. Stevens explained, "The average patient would be surprised to learn that the hospital to which she has gone for treatment is trying to disclaim responsibility for the very physicians it selected to treat her."
