In this interlocutory appeal, a hospital challenges the trial court's denial of its motion to dismiss a health care liability claim. Because the direct liability claims are about the alleged failure in the hospital's administrative care, the expert does not need to be a nurse or physician to qualify as an expert for the direct liability claims; rather, he needs to be an experienced hospital administrator. The trial court's order is affirmed. Fort Worth Court of Appeals, No. 02-12-00009-CV, 09-27-2012.
