Plaintiff was a patient at the defendant medical center.  After her consultation with a nurse practitioner ended, with positive test results and no further treatment required, plaintiff tripped on a scale that had been moved during the consultation so as to partly obstruct plaintiff’s path to the hallway to leave.  This decision holds that plaintiff’s negligence claim arising from this incident is not subject to CCP 340.5’s limitations period for liability caused by a health care provider in rendering professional services, but rather is a general negligence claim governed by CCP 340’s two-year limitations period.
