If it can be shown that the actions that caused the injury were errors of judgement as opposed to negligent actions and that the practice followed was accepted by other competent physicians and that the injury was merely an unfortunate result or that a body of respectable doctors would act in a way which deviates from the standard practice, then the doctor may avoid liability unless negligence can be proven.
