Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Jay Gold, MD, JD, MPH (MetaStar, Inc.)
Description: In this longstanding text the author sets forth the scope and intricacies of healthcare administration law from a management point of view.
Purpose: The purpose is to set the scope and intricacies of the law of healthcare administration.
Audience: It is aimed at health administrators and at students of health management.
Features: Topics covered include: an introduction to the legal system, the basic law of intentional torts and contracts, negligence and malpractice, corporate organization and management, corporate liability, admission and discharge, informed consent, family planning, medical records, medical staff appointments and privileges, and emergency care. In the eleven years since the second edition was published, there have been major changes in the law in such areas as antitrust (as related to provider reimbursement, mergers, and consolidations), EMTALA (anti-damping), abortion, taxation (especially the 1996 Taxpayer Bill of Rights), managed care, and fraud and abuse — these are all updated well in the new edition.
Assessment: The first and second editions were leading texts in this area, and this third edition should be likewise. It is readable, accurate, and comprehensive, and the discussions are fuller than those of Pozgar's Case Law in Health Care Administration, 2nd Edition (Aspen Publishers, Inc., 1999). I would recommend it highly.
