Question : 31) It a generally accepted precaution for dentists to warn : 2095791

31) It is a generally accepted precaution for dentists to warn patients of risks and exercise extra caution if patients are on anticoagulants (blood thinners) and must undergo dental procedures. A dentist fails to alert a patient (who the dentist knows is on anticoagulants) of the risks of a procedure the patient is about to undergo that is dangerous to someone on blood thinners. The patient experiences near-fatal bleeding due to the procedure. The plaintiff decides to sue for malpractice but the dentist says he was unaware of the need to warn patients on blood thinners of possible risks. Is the dentist going to be successful in his defense?

A) Yes, as long as he can prove he did not know about the risks.

B) No because a professional cannot defend against a negligent suit by claiming ignorance of generally accepted principles in his or her field of expertise.

C) Yes, as long as he did not make any specific mistakes during the dental procedure.

D) Yes, as long as the dentist can prove that the risks are overstated.
