Vignettes are used to depict many of these situations. Although these issues are somewhat unconnected and suffer somewhat in clarity and detail, the patient's right to conrol someaspects of his care emerges clearly as a unifying theme. The nurse's role in a conflict between patient and physician is not made clear. Although the vignettes are effective, they are somewhat overdone and sometimes make it difficult to readjust to the more technical, less dramatic discussions which follow. Nevertheless, the program is recommended121ocn024241371visu19740.63Nursing torts(Critical) This program presents four major torts - assault and battery, false imprisonment, defamation and invasions of privacy. Each is clearly defined and well presented with good examples. The examples tend to be somewhat clear cut and should be supplemented by discussion. This program is one of the best organized and logically consistent of the series. It should spark discussion and is recommended for use112ocn004843451visu19740.76Legal basis for nursing practice(Critical) This program briefly introduces the common features of nurse practice acts, discusses violations of them and presents the cases for continuing education in maintaining nursing competence. Vignettes illustrate the procedure for withdrawal of a license in a case of drug abuse and the plight of a nurse unfamiliar with current nursing practices. This program is a poor start to an otherwise good series. There is little information about nurse practice acts, their origins, their functions and their relationship to other areas of law affecting nursing. The discussion of continuing education in this context is more confusing than informative. The issue of whether nurses have a legal obligation to report violations by other nurses is raised but not clarified. For these reasons, despite the fact that the drug abuse vignette is vividly presented, the program is only marginally recommended101ocn008047163visu19770.76Mental health nursing(Critical) This program discusses voluntary and involuntary hospitalization; the doctrine of the least restrictive alternative; the rights to treatment, to privacy and to see an attorney; and several other rights of committed patients. Vignettes depict a voluntary admission, a committed patient in need of treatment and a case of invasion of privacy. The program says little about the specific issues faced by nurses. It confounds, instead of clarifies, important distinctions, such as the difference between dangerousness to self and to others, and between voluntary and involuntary admission. Much of the lawyer Pat Murphy's comments are unclear, and his response to the case of the patient in need of treatment is irrelevant. The program ranges too widely to respect fully the issues presented. It is the least coherent of the series and is not recommended92ocn004441834visu19770.59Parents and children(Critical) This program deals with minor status and informed consent, including consent of parents with minor children, the differences between the emergency situation and the usual treatment situation, state laws covering abortion for minors, role of the parents in abortion for minors and the legal and ethical role of the nurse in child abuse and wife beating. Since the examples cover numerous specific issues, none of them are dealt with in great depth. Overall, the program is good and is recommended51ocn031654169visu19740.47Malpractice(Critical) This program contains coherent discussions of the procedures followed in malpractice suits and the elements of proof and burden of proof in malpractice. It notes some common causes of nursing malpractice suits. The discussion is intertwined with several vignettes depicting an incident of malpractice and its subsequent legal consequences. The vignettes have good continuity and the discussion proceeds logically. The main points in malpractice are clearly outlined.The discussion of defenses to malpractice suits and the depiction of the nurse/physician relationship in questions of negligence could have been improved. Overall, however, the program is good and commands attention. It is recommended for use21ocn007434459rcrd19740.47MalpracticeElements of malpractice are explained and the mechanics of a law suit are demonstated by vignettes21ocn007434462rcrd19740.47Nursing tortsDefines and illustrates major civil wrongs: assault, battery, false imprisonment, defamation, and invasion of privacy22ocn456472286visu19740.92Scope of practice and standard of careRelates nursing practice to the definitions of nursing in nurse practice acts. On the basis of two case studies it discusses how legal definitions can affect emerging roles in nursing. The first vignette deals with a law suit resulting from a pediatric nurse practitioner's examination of an infant. The second vignette illustrates the use of a nursing audit for the purpose of maintenance of high standards of practice11ocn007399774rcrd19770.47Mental health nursingAnalyzes the concepts of patients' rights to treatment, confidentiality, least restrictive alternative, and privacy.
