Guest: Mark Herrmann
Guest Mark Herrmann tells us what it means when a prescription drug or medical device is described as "off-label". Mr. Herrmann also explains that a physician can legally prescribe any drug for any purpose and that his exposure for malpractice liability is based upon whether he met the legal "standard of care", not whether he complied with the drug or device's approved use as authorized by the FDA.
