Medical Devices and Paramedical Personnel: A Preliminary Context for Emerging Problems, 1967 WASH. U.L.Q. 332 (1967)


On the morning of June 1st, Joseph K. awakened feeling terrible. When
his condition did not improve during the day, his wife called the K. family
physician, Dr. George Powers, and Dr. Powers suggested that Mr. K. be
brought in to see him. When the K's. arrived, Dr. Powers and his salaried
assistant, Dr. Fingerling, examined Mr. K. thoroughly. They could find
nothing wrong with him (other than his increasingly oppressive subjective
symptoms), but as those symptoms were seriously debilitating, Dr. Powers
suggested that Mr. K. check into Central Hospital (a large teaching hospital
affiliated with the local medical school) for further tests.
