Case Synopsis

The Court determined that an expert affidavit attached to a medical malpractice complaint, which otherwise properly supports the allegations of medical malpractice contained in the complaint but does not identify all the defendants by name and refers to them only as staff of the medical facility, may still comply with the requirements of NRS 41A.071 ]“if it is clear that the defendants and the court received sufficient notice of the nature and basis of the medical malpractice claims.” In order to make this determination, courts should read a medical malpractice complaint and the plaintiff’s expert affidavit together.
