Summary

The definitive sourcebook for basic legal knowledge, this reference covers the majority of legal issues in nursing in depth, citing current case examples from courts throughout the United States. It provides practical tips for improving patient care and reducing liability risks, and answers the legal questions most commonly asked by nurses. Offers a thorough explanation of the law, its sources, doctrines, and court system, and combines legal and ethical topics to show readers how both concepts affect nursing practice in all clinical settings. Features You Be the Judge/You Be the Ethicist sections that gives facts (many in great detail) from actual court cases (dating from 1993 to the present), along with questions that direct readers to consider chapter content in light of real court cases.
