Chapters are in sections on the law and nursing practice, liability in patient care, documentation issues, employment and the workplace, and ethics. Each chapter reviews current court cases involving nurses, in addition to core content that is essential to every nursing curriculum. In addition to scholarly legal and professional references and case law citations at the end of each chapter, many chapters cite additional bibliographic material and web sites.
