OHIO COURT FINDS THAT PHYSICIAN'S SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH A PATIENT DID NOT CONSTITUTE MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

In Beattie v. McCoy, 2018-Ohio-2535, 115 N.E.3d 867, the Court held that professional liability policies did not cover medical malpractice actions arising from a physician's sexual relationship with a patient. The policy in question provided coverage for defined "professional services." The policy defined "professional services" as "medical, surgical, dental, imaging, mental or other healthcare professional service or treatments . . . [and the] provision of drugs, healthcare supplies or appliances." Under the facts presented there was no obligation to provide coverage.
