Note "Using reader-friendly, jargon-free language, this text unravels the complexities of the legal system in health care and provides the reader with a strong foundation in health law. Readers will gain a solid understanding of what steps providers of care, legislative bodies, patients, patients' families, and patient advocates can take to help prevent the wide variety of harmful events that are involved in health care. This book is a sound reference for anyone who wishes to become more informed about how the law, ethics, and health care intersect."--Publisher's website
