Human rights and health care law by Eugene I Pavalon ( Book )
4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rights of patients ( Visual )
in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
(Critical) This program covers a number of issues involved in patient's rights, including right to information, informed consent, refusal of care, incapacitated patient minors, emergencies, treatment by students, experimentation, privacy, ownership of records and protection from outrageous conduct. 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 recommended
Nursing torts ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
(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 use
Legal basis for nursing practice ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
(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 recommended
Mental health nursing ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
(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 recommended
Parents and children ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
(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 recommended
Malpractice ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
(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 use
