Laser hair removal isn't health care, rules Indiana Court of Appeals
From: Lawyers USA
Laser hair-removal treatment is not considered health care under a state medical malpractice act, the Indiana Court of Appeals has ruled. The plaintiff sought laser hair removal for cosmetic purposes at a health care facility and received treatment from a nurse who was trained on the use of the laser machine but held no certification for it. The plaintiff sued the facility, claiming that she was burned as a result of the treatment.
The health care facility moved to dismiss the suit, arguing that the laser hair treatment constituted health care under the state medical malpractice act.
