Ray Powers and Portia Rauer successfully defeated a motion to dismiss brought by a large Idaho hospital in a wrongful death case. The hospital claimed that the plaintiff’s claims were for medical malpractice, thereby requiring dismissal of the case due to the plaintiff’s failure to present her claims to the Idaho State Board of Medicine’s prelitigation screening panel. The court disagreed, holding that the plaintiff’s damages were not caused by the provision of or failure to provide health care, and therefore, were not claims for medical malpractice.
