Premedication

The ADA no longer recommends premedication for joint replacement; however, many surgeons still recommend premedication for their patients. Are we liable if we choose to follow the ADA recommendations over the surgeon’s recommendations?

We always follow whatever the surgeon recommends whether it follows ADA guidelines or not. I would think if we chose not to we could be held liable for any consequences resulting from the patient not taking their premed…since we were the ones who told the patient not to premedicate.
