Default Can a Physicians Assistant be sued for malpractice in Florida?

State: Florida -- P.A. refused to accept DSM diagnosis and forced person into un-needed medications and caused set back in treatment? Can he be sued for malpractice?

Also can hospital be held responsible for allowing him to treat patients?

Thank you!

I wish to inform you that physician as well as hospital will be jointly liable. In this wrong treatment was being given at hospital by physician thus both the parties had acted together and will make them liable. You may give a notice to physician as well as hospital about malpractice being done and your compensation for your loss. If physician and hospital refuses to settle your claim then you may file a lawsuit.

The P.A can be sued for violation of standard of care. You can also sue the doctor under whose supervision the P.A is practicing. The hospital is also liable for the negligence of P.A.
