Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Constance A. Morrison, MSN, MBA, JD (Law Offices of Constance A. Morrison)
Description: This fourth edition is an exceptional, quick reference of the legal system and its principles and laws affecting the practice of nursing. For even quicker reference, each chapter contains a highlighted summary of the legal concepts covered in that chapter.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an unparalleled current overview of the law for all practice settings. The editor has met this objective.
Audience: This compact, easily-understood legal resource is much needed by the student nurse, the nurse in law school, the nurse attorney defending before nursing boards, and those in academics, as well as the practicing nurse in all specialties throughout his/her career, to include alternative practice. The list of contributors consists of credible, published authors throughout the U.S.
Features: In this comprehensive resource, landmarks in nursing law through the end of the 20th century, including ethical conflicts facing nurses today, are covered. The dilemmas concerning reproductive technology through the evolving "Whistleblower" law are clear and on point. The glossary of legal terms has been expanded. The appendixes have been further developed to assist readers in their quest to understand types of law and the judicial process. The separate court case citation index is a further aid for readers researching the additional case law which pertains to each subject discussed.
Assessment: The law is fluid, not a hard science. With its ever-increasing risks as well as protections for the practice of nursing, it is imperative that the latest information be available. Not only is this text an aid in preventing malpractice lawsuits, it is an aid for practitioners who now do more with less as they are being held to strict accountability licensure standards.
