Kentucky Court of Appeals
University of Kentucky v Bunnell

In this published opinion, the Kentucky Court of Appeals produced an extensive and well-readable discussion of what would qualify as Patient Safety Work Product. They point out that the Kentucky Supreme Court case is not precedential, and differ with the analysis produced by HHS in their guidance regarding information collected for other purposes.

This document is required reading for anyone wishing to analyze the interaction of the Patient Safety Act with other Federal and State laws, and the interaction with non-governmental entities such as The Joint Commission.
