Here's a comprehensive, in-depth, and clearly focused overview of legal issues affecting nurses and nursing practice today. This book is more in-depth than Greighton: Law Every Nurse Should Know. Organized into three major sections--Overview of the Law, Legal Issues, and Legal Concerns of Nurses in Diverse Roles and Settings--this authoritative text lucidly explains what the law is, how it works, and how it applies to current nursing practice.
