ASA® Responds to Virginia Malpractice Suit, Notes Ethical Guidelines

The American Society of Anesthesiologists® (ASA®) was very disappointed to learn of the serious allegations against physician anesthesiologist Tiffany M. Ingham, M.D., who recently was sued for medical malpractice and defamation for making comments about a patient during a colonoscopy in Reston, Va.  Dr. Ingham is not a member of ASA.

The Society promotes the highest levels of professionalism and patient care and advocates that all physician anesthesiologists follow its Guidelines for Ethical Practice of Anesthesiology which require that members provide medical care with compassion and respect for the dignity of the patients.
