Rptr. 505 (1972) Court that Decided the Case The case was decided by the Supreme Court of California. The claim having arose within the state of California the supreme court of the state of California was the highest ranking court in terms of jurisprudence and competence to handle this matter. Having gone through to various subordinate courts the supreme court of California is the last competent court to entertain an appeal from the court of appeal in the state of California. If there would have been further contentions on the adjudicated matters by this supreme court the next court with competency and jurisdiction to matters relating to consent and the relationship between the patient and the physician the case has significance to healthcare administrators. The precedent ensures that patients not only consent to treatment but they consent while informed. This is a relief for healthcare administrators as they and their staff are less likely to be caught up in tortious claims battles on grounds that a patient did not give an informed consent to a certain treatment.
