The Rule of Reliance in Medical Teamwork
The legal principles derived from the rule of reliance are acquired from the concept of appropriate distribution of traffic risks. Most theories and judicial practices agree that the rule of reliance should be applicable to medical behavior. The purpose of accepting the rule of reliance in medical behavior is to reasonably classify the scope of the foreseeable obligations and the risks that medical personnel can foresee in individual professional fields in complex medical organizations. However, when judging whether the rule of reliance applies medical behavior or not, it is necessary to consider the purpose and value that protected behind the event, and therefore be able to accurately demonstrate the value and significance of the tolerable risk in medical behavior.
