Concerning a physician's obligation to provide due care to a patient, which one of the following is correct?<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />



1) Beneficence is a moral commitment but not a legal obligation to the well-being of the patient

2) Respecting autonomy is both a moral commitment and a legal obligation to the patient

3) A physician can be found guilty of negligence even if he/she has acted in accordance with a practice acceptable to a responsible body of peers

4) Unanimity of practice is expected of physicians
5) Where patient outcomes are poor, physicians may have their practices scrutinized by the courts but not by peer organizations
