Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Constance A. Morrison, MSN, MBA, JD (Law Offices of Constance A. Morrison)
Description: This book provides current information on liability issues for perinatal nurses in nearly all clinical settings. Case law is used to illustrate the legal risks associated with each clinical area.
Purpose: The purpose is to help nurses pro-actively identify legal risks and develop strategies to reduce them. Legal education is not generally part of nursing curricula, yet nurses are accountable for complying with the law. Therefore, this book fills an obvious void; hence its objectives are clearly met.
Audience: This book is written for practicing perinatal nurses who face the possibility of legal assault in every perinatal clinical setting in which a "less than perfect baby is delivered," becomes ill, or dies. However, the legal concepts are pertinent to all nurses. The editors are nurse attorneys, and this lends credibility to the clinical and legal content.
Features: This book is divided into four distinct parts and is further subdivided into 24 comprehensive chapters. This allows the reader quick access to legal information at a glance. Most chapters have one or more display sections which provide a brief synopsis of the material.
Assessment: This comprehensive book on liability issues in perinatal nursing should be considered the legal bible in all perinatal nursing settings. Individual nurses would be advised to add this book to their personal library.
