About the Book
Falls, pressure sores and IV therapy-related events may lead to high treatment cost, prolonged suffering, and denied reimbursement for hospital care. They may even cause to the patient’s death. Healthcare providers are increasingly aware of the clinical and financial risks. Attorneys are increasingly seeing plaintiffs alleging deviations from the standard of care related to these events. These events often culminate in litigation.
Are you a legal nurse consultant, attorney or clinician? Analyzing Falls, Pressure Sore and IV Therapy Cases was written to help you understand:
- What causes these events
- What are the clinical results or damages
- How these problems are prevented
- How to analyze the liability
The text is chock full of practical wisdom, tips, explanations, and guidance for the analysis of these cases. It builds on the author’s experiences as an expert witness and legal nurse consultant since 1987.
