Overview

In addition to the clinical and operational aspects of long-term care facilities, administrators and administrators-in-training AITs need to grasp the legal and regulatory requirements that so closely govern nursing homes. Few administrators have the time or the background to tackle law books. They need to knowhow the law affects facilities in concrete ways. They need an understanding of what HCFA and state health agencies require, and how they operate. Liability, corporate negligence, licensing, medical records, contracts, labor relations, and residents' rights must be fully understood to ensure that preventive polices and procedures as well as educational programs may be implemented. Legal Guide for Long-Term Care Administrators gives long-term care administrators what they need to know.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lori L. Popejoy, PhD, APRN, BC (University of Missouri-Columbia)
Description: With this book the author offers an overview of the legal precepts associated with long-term care administration.
Purpose: The book is intended to help the long-term care administrator become familiar with the legal considerations of the industry.
Audience: The materials are to be used by long-term care administrators. However, the book would also be helpful to professional nurses, licensed practical nurses, and medical directors.
Features: Areas of the law associated with long-term management are covered, such as tort law, liability, labor law and labor relations, protective arrangements for people and property, and the judiciary system. More discussion of the various State Nurse Practice acts, and the need for nurses to be fully aware of the responsibilities and limits of their practice would have been helpful. Often directors of nursing and administrators would benefit from more knowledge of what to expect from professional staff.
Assessment: This book is an excellent resource about the laws that affect long-term care. It is easy to read and offers a basic review of important principles specific to the legal aspects of running a nursing home.
