§ 2577. Gross Negligence.
As set forth in Section 4521 of the code, gross negligence is deemed unprofessional conduct and is grounds for disciplinary action. As used in Section 4521 “gross negligence” means a substantial departure from the standard of care which, under similar circumstances, would have ordinarily been exercised by a competent licensed psychiatric technician, and which has or could have resulted in harm to the consumer. An exercise of so slight a degree of care as to justify the belief that there was a conscious disregard or indifference for the health, safety, or welfare of the consumer shall be considered a substantial departure from the above standard care.
