Overview

Because communication among healthcare professionals can mean the difference between patient life and death, clear and effective patient care documentation is as important as the delivery of care itself. The rehabilitation professional faces formidable documentation responsibilities. Patient care documentation created by the rehabilitation professional must be accurate, comprehensive, concise, objective, timely, and expeditiously communicated to other professionals on the health care team. Legal Aspects of Documenting Patient Care for Rehabilitation Professionals, Third Edition, provides a comprehensive overview of legal issues related to everyday patient care clinical documentation. This text presents extensive coverage of the electronic medical record, the HIPAA Privacy Rule and incident reporting, among other focused topics.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher James Hughes, PT,PhD,OCS,CSCS(Slippery Rock University)
Description: The focus of this book is on informing health professionals of the legal ramifications surrounding documentation. The previous edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The author emphasizes the legal obligation of health professionals to properly and effectively document patient care activities. This update was needed to include recent requirements created by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and to address the implications of the electronic medical record.
Audience: This is an excellent resource for students, academicians teaching legal effects of documentation, and practicing healthcare professionals at all levels of experience. The author is a licensed physical therapist board certified in orthopedic physical therapy as well as a health care attorney and educator. He has also written extensively on the topics of health law and ethics.
Features: Six chapters cover topics related to risk management, informed consent, legal proceedings and the healthcare record, and methods and management of clinical documentation. The new information on the impact of HIPAA is very timely. The author has filled the book with several case study examples and offers a helpful glossary of terms and also cites relevant legal proceedings. His writing is easy to read and holds the readers interest. Even though the book is less than 200 pages, it offers a wealth of information.
Assessment: To remain current, the author has compiled an excellent new edition. The book is unique in the field and is a "must have" book for the student and practicing clinician. The information presented here can literally determine the success of a clinician's career in terms of adhering to proper procedures for documentation and avoiding adverse litigation.
