About this Event
Shortly after Zachary Miller was released from the emergency room at Community Howard Regional Health, he killed his grandfather. Miller pleaded guilty but mentally ill to voluntary manslaughter. He then filed a medical malpractice complaint against Community and other healthcare providers, and a medical review panel found the providers failed to comply with the appropriate standard of care. The Howard Superior Court granted summary judgment in the providers’ favor, but the Court of Appeals reversed and remanded for further proceedings, finding a genuine issue of material fact as to whether Miller was legally responsible for his criminal act. Miller v. Patel, 189 N.E.3d 216 (Ind. Ct. App. 2022), vacated. The Indiana Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer and assumed jurisdiction over the case.
