Ryley Carlock & Applewhite Shareholder Publishes Law Journal Article Discussing Nurse-Patient Privilege

Ryley Carlock & Applewhite Shareholder Mike Moberly’s article, “Can a Nightingale Sing? Assessing the Need for a Nurse-Patient Privilege,” was published in the Fall 2020 issue of the Journal of Health & Biomedical Law. The article, which can be accessed at https://sites.suffolk.edu/jhbl/publications/, argues for the widespread recognition of a nurse-patient testimonial privilege. Although relatively few states currently recognize such a privilege, Mike notes its similarity to the widely recognized physician-patient privilege, and argues that the recognition of both privileges would reflect the growing role of nurses in the provision of health care, particularly among low-income populations.
