Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas Christoffel, JD (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Description: This is the fifth edition of a review of the leading legal issues relevant to health care delivery and health care administration.
Purpose: The authors' stated purpose is "to arm the health care professional with a working knowledge of health law." This is a worthy objective in principle; however, it is a quite difficult objective to achieve, for without some general understanding of law and the operation of the legal system to provide context, isolated legal information can be as confusing as helpful. The authors overcome this difficulty only to a quite limited extent.
Audience: More to the point, however, is the question of how the reader is to use this book (i.e., read it cover to cover, consult it as a reference, etc.). The answer is not at all clear, which may simply be a result of the difficulty of the objective.
Features: This is not the type of book that requires, or has, illustrations. The references are not useful. The table of contents and the index are satisfactory, but the organization of the book itself is sometimes confusing (e.g., the leading refusal-of-treatment case is discussed under "defining death" rather than under "refusal of treatment"). The overall appearance of the book is satisfactory.
Assessment: This book would have been significantly improved if the authors had devoted more attention to (1) determining what their audience needed to understand and (2) how to provide that understanding. Instead, the book comes closer to being a simple cataloging (or, at best, a pedestrian review) of miscellaneous health law topics. It lacks the discrimination and guidance for the reader that could have made it more useful.
Mark C. Mantooth
Written primarily as a textbook for healthcare management programs, this work attempts to address all major areas of health law within 21 chapters. Since the last edition in 1993, this sixth edition includes two new chapters and some minor changes in the other chapters. The book seeks to provide the reader with the necessary background on a wide range of current healthcare topics, enabling professionals to deal with common legal and practical problems facing the healthcare industry. The book also attempts to serve as a textbook for use in healthcare management curricula. The latter of these objectives remains the more worthy, because suitable textbooks in this field are truly hard to come by. According to the author, this book was written as a course text for healthcare management students and as a reference for healthcare professionals. Practically speaking, though, it would function effectively only as a teaching aid and perhaps textbook for students. With the author having a primarily business background, the text proves deficient in presenting many legal principles. Since the fifth edition, the author has added more than 150 pages to this nonillustrated textbook. Still included are a helpful glossary of legal terms written in plain English, outlines at the beginning of each chapter, an index of cited cases, and a word index. The material is presented in an attractive, clearly segmented manner. Though a marked improvement since the last edition, this edition still fails to present adequately the legal issues of most concern to today's health care administrators. The text virtually ignores private inurement, the corporate practice of medicine, and information systems issues,and ineptly discusses antitrust, fraud and abuse, and self-referral laws.
