Health care provider statements may not be used in malpractice actions.
No statement made by a health care provider apologizing for an adverse outcome
in medical treatment, no offer to undertake corrective or remedial treatment or action, and no
gratuitous act to assist affected persons is admissible to prove negligence by the health care
provider in any action for damages for personal injury or death alleging malpractice against any
health care provider. Nothing in this section prevents the admission, for the purpose of
impeachment, of any statement constituting an admission against interest by the health care
provider making such statement.
