Overview

The Ninth Edition of Problems in Health Care Law has been extensively updated and restructured to utilize the problems approach. This classic book deliberately seeks to state expressly the general principles - both of the underlying conflicting public policies and the legal solutions to those problems.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

Susan Wood O'Leary
This is the seventh edition of a narrative overview of different areas of health law with reference to legislative, judicial, and accrediting sources. The last edition was published in 1990. The author indicates that he has updated the volume with new material to address the "revolutionary changes in the health care system since the last edition." The title of the book has also been changed, from the title of its previous edition, Problems in Hospital Law. This name change reflects the current trend that while hospitals remain an important component, they are only part of the field of health law. Legal problems must be defined or addressed from that broader perspective. The book is written at a fairly introductory level and allows the student or junior administrator to get a flavor of problems and issues. It also provides sufficient information on other reference sources to be a guide for the practitioner. The volume, however, would not be dispositive on any one issue or a sole reference. Although the index is well laid out, the table of contents and chapter headings are not as helpful. The references appear current and varied enough to allow the practitioner to access additional sources of information. The author does not provide a well-described audience, and this book appears to be an introductory overview for the student or new administrator. In that context, it is a decent introduction to the current issues in health care law. Furthermore, it leads to the identification of additional resources for the more seasoned administrator or legal counsel.

Reviewer:Susan Wood O'Leary, JD(Rush University Medical Center)
Description:This is the seventh edition of a narrative overview of different areas of health law with reference to legislative, judicial, and accrediting sources. The last edition was published in 1990.
Purpose:The author indicates that he has updated the volume with new material to address the "revolutionary changes in the health care system since the last edition." The title of the book has also been changed, from the title of its previous edition, Problems in Hospital Law. This name change reflects the current trend that while hospitals remain an important component, they are only part of the field of health law. Legal problems must be defined or addressed from that broader perspective.
Audience:The book is written at a fairly introductory level and allows the student or junior administrator to get a flavor of problems and issues. It also provides sufficient information on other reference sources to be a guide for the practitioner. The volume, however, would not be dispositive on any one issue or a sole reference.
Features:Although the index is well laid out, the table of contents and chapter headings are not as helpful. The references appear current and varied enough to allow the practitioner to access additional sources of information.
Assessment:The author does not provide a well-described audience, and this book appears to be an introductory overview for the student or new administrator. In that context, it is a decent introduction to the current issues in health care law. Furthermore, it leads to theidentification of additional resources for the more seasoned administrator or legal counsel.

Provides an overview of health care law, with chapters on areas such as the legal structure of health care organizations, managed care, malpractice, and reproductive issues. This eighth edition contains new chapters on managed care and criminal law, and expanded material on drug and device regulation and discrimination claims by staff. This edition is reorganized to highlight the competing interests of access and confidentiality. Miller is a legal counsel for the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics.
