Overview

With over 100,000 copies sold, instructors turn to George Pozgar time and again to make the legal aspects of health care administration meaningful and memorable to students. The tenth edition of this classic text has been further revised and updated with the most current information on law and the health care industry. This edition continues to lay a strong foundation for the reader in both ethical and legal issues critical to improving the quality and safe delivery of health care. This revision includes comprehensive information on the newest laws affecting the health care industry, specifically the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Many new charts have been added. The author has also taken great care to reduce the legal jargon to make it reader-friendly for students of health care administration.
It presents a wide range of health care topics in a comprehensible and engaging manner that carefully guides students through the complex maze of the legal system as it impacts health care organizations. Actual court cases are presented throughout the book to bring the legal information to life and help students to apply the information to their daily professional lives.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lena L Watson, Dr. RN, MBA/HCM(University of Phoenix)
Description: Similar to the ninth edition published in 2004, this tenth edition is a comprehensive resource for up-to-date information on healthcare law and its key administrative elements.
Purpose: The purpose is two-fold. First, the book fundamentally introduces readers to how and when the law intersects with healthcare. Second, it explains healthcare providers' legal areas of responsibility. These are vital objectives because healthcare is in a perpetual state of evolution. The book meets the objectives, offering practical approaches to healthcare law.
Audience: The author indicates this is suitable as a course textbook and a reference for practitioners. In addition, it is appropriate for a much broader audience, including risk managers, healthcare administrators, consultants, healthcare scholars, legal nurse consultants, case manager/discharge planners, utilization review managers, quality managers, healthcare project managers, bioethicists, healthcare auditors, and healthcare attorneys. The author has established himself as a trusted expert in the healthcare field and he is a Joint Commission surveyor, president of his own consulting firm, educator, and scholar.
Features: The book covers a wide range of healthcare law topics, including: a historical and structural overview of hospitals and the judicial system governing healthcare; legal aspects of healthcare delivery challenging healthcare professionals; past and present healthcare ethical practices and standards; federal and state healthcare case law and regulatory mandates; information management , security, and confidentiality; informed consent and patient self-determination; managed care and organizational restructuring; current healthcare employment case law practices and strategies; and future recommendations. This book is reader-friendly, using a format with a logical flow. Most chapters begin with a court case, giving readers an opportunity to apply theory and practical knowledge. At the end of the chapters are court findings, reasoning, and summaries for each case in a box titled "The Court's Decision." In addition to case law practical applications, the conclusion of most chapters includes a chapter review and review questions. A comprehensive glossary section with key healthcare law-related terms and definitions appears at the end of the book. One of the many unique features is the associated Web site with additional resources. There are few diagrams and illustrations, but the substantive content makes up for any of the perceived shortcomings. In keeping with previous editions, this is an invaluable addition to the body of literature in healthcare law.
Assessment: Like the previous editions, this handy, easy-to-read reference is a practical, at-your-fingertips resource that concisely explains key issues and elements of the legal aspects of healthcare administration. The information is reliably accurate and objective. Once again, this edition rightfully deserves a permanent place on the bookshelves of today's healthcare innovators, thinkers, scholars, learners, and leaders.

    Outdated

    While I am sure this book represented the most current legal outlook on health care at the time of its publishing, I found most of the case studies irrelevant as a result of the changes recently made in the healthcare industry so it was hard to gain a good perspective on what is really going on with this text. I realize there have been a great many landmark decisions since 2006 and that this are going to be many more in the future, I just wouldn't suggest using the information found within this text as representative of the direction that health care law in the United States is going.
