Book Description

Dec 11 1998
In health care, legal and ethical issues abound, and never more so in this age of managed care. Now broadened in scope to cover all health-related professions, this practical guide provides concise, readable information relevant to the ethical issues and decisions a health care provider must deal with on a daily basis. This totally revised and expanded edition features new chapters covering the unique constructs of managed care and how it adds a whole new dimension to malpractice liability, a chapter tracing a complete malpractice action from initial incident to finding of liability, and much more. Lastly, the addition of two case studies at the end of each chapter (one real, one hypothetical) help highlight salient academic points and apply them to real world situations.
