reasonable man doctrine or standard
In medical, legal, etc., malpractice cases a standard of care is applied to measure the competence of the professional. The traditional standard for doctors is that he exercise the "average degree of skill, care, and diligence exercised by members of the same profession, practicing in the same or a similar locality in light of the present state of medical and surgical science." Gillette v. Tucker, 67 Ohio St. 106, 65 N.E. 865.
With increased specialization, however, certain courts have disregarded geographical considerations holding that in the practice of a board-certified medical or surgical specialty, the standard should be that of a reasonable specialist practicing medicine or surgery in the same special field. Bruni v. Tatsumi, 46 Ohio St.2d 127,129, 346 N.E.2d 673, 676, 75 O.O.2d 184.
