Standard Of Care

(n) Standard of care is the attention, caution or prudence expected from an average person , subjected to such circumstances, would have taken to safeguard his interest when his interest and safety are subjected to risk by such events. For example a person is expected to take his wounded mother to hospital immediately if he finds her subjected to an accident. So it cannot be said as a standard of care if he stops at the nearby police station and report there seeing somebody met with an accident Home
