Read the case study 2 which begins, The patient was seen by the NP in an outpatient clinic for persistent diarrhea, and answer the following questions:
How should the expert witness for the defense offer testimony that the NP and the consulting physician had met the standards of care for this individual patient?
Did not having a full autopsy impact the outcome of the case either for or against the NP and the clinic?

Was the care of this patient appropriately assigned to the LPN by the charge nurse, or could the charge nurse have delegated this patient’s care more appropriately?
If the charge nurse assigned the care of the patient to the LPN, did she retain any supervisory responsibility that would result in her liability in this case?
How do the principles associated with delegation and supervision figure into this case?

Answers must thoroughly address the questions in a clear, concise manner. Use the appropriate APA style in-text citations and references for all resources utilized to answer the questions. Include at least three (3) scholarly sources to support your claims, at least ONE per case study. Please include a conclusion as well. I have attached the case studies in a separate document.
