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. This newly revised Nursing Malpractice, Fourth Edition, Volume I and Volume II is designed to give you a comprehensive overview of nursing malpractice litigation. This extensively revised and updated edition of a classic covers the spectrum of the nursing process--from the neonate to the oldest nursing home resident.  It 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.

Volume 2, Roots of Nursing Malpractice, takes a closer look at more specific roles, 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.
