An outstanding reference for the attorney, legal nurse consultant, insurance claim adjuster, healthcare risk manager, or healthcare facility leader involved in a nursing malpractice claim, the fourth edition of Nursing Malpractice brings you a wealth of information and resources for your case. This extensively revised and updated edition of a classic covers the spectrum of the nursing process-from patient admittance to lawsuit. Packed with tips and techniques this volume reveals typical ways in which nurses try to cover up their mistakes, shows how nurses are caught in a difficult position between the insurance company lawyers and hospital procedures, and gives a comprehensive overview of nursing responsibilities.

Nursing Malpractice, Fourth Edition consists of two separate books: Volume 1 and Volume 2. Volume 1, Foundations of Nursing Malpractice Claims, covers broad range topics such as patient safety, nursing practice, damages, and litigation of nursing malpractice claims. Included are new chapters on the view of the actuary and e-discovery. Volume 2, Roots of Nursing Malpractice, takes a closer look at more specific role, with detailed chapters on obstetrics, critical care, psychiatric, medical surgical, orthopaedic, managed care and emergency nursing, among many others. Included are new chapters on respiratory care, school nursing, dialysis therapy, telephone triage, nurse practitioners, healthcare-acquired conditions, and falls and their consequences.

A unique blend of attorneys, nurse attorneys, nurse expert witnesses, legal nurse consultants, physicians, pharmacists, toxicologists, jury consultants, actuaries and legal photographers contributed chapters for this book. To our knowledge, this text remains the only one on the market written for attorneys on nursing malpractice using such a broad base of expert authors. In short, this comprehensive book is an excellent and important addition to your nursing malpractice library.
