Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This is one of the premier handbooks on medical malpractice from one of the most respected organizations in the U.S. — the American College of Legal Medicine. This is truly a survival handbook for any physician.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide physicians with the necessary, crucial knowledge they need to survive a medical malpractice lawsuit, regardless of whether they are currently involved in one. In our highly litigious society, this book fulfills one of the most important objectives — knowledge.
Audience: The intended audience is primarily physicians, but those in allied health specialties would benefit as well from the information in this handbook.
Features: Everything one needs to know about medical malpractice, without having to pay a retainer, is contained in this book. Notably, the culture of malpractice is examined along with the various policies and what they mean. Pitfalls and the basic structure of how malpractice comes about are explored in exceptional detail along with a full explanation of the American court system. Also included is a wonderful tort reform discussion. The highlight of the book is the liability of specialties, where one can quickly learn about the idiosyncratic nature, in terms of malpractice, of 16 different specialties.
Assessment: This book is one of the best ways to arm oneself with the knowledge to safeguard against costly litigation.
