Book Description

Now in its fifth edition, The Law of Healthcare Administration continues to examine the legal aspects of healthcare from a management perspective. Using plain language, the book is a comprehensive treatment of health law in the United States, addressing topics from the basic structure of the court system to the general legal responsibilities of healthcare organizations to the specific liabilities inherent in the provision of care. Legal concepts in the book are supported by examples from actual court decisions.

This edition features:

  • Discussion of recent legal developments in high-profile areas such as HIPAA, abortion, and withholding life-sustaining treatment
  • Revisions to the corporate-compliance chapter that better emphasize fraud and abuse issues
  • Addition of sidebars that provide extra information, real-life examples, and interesting insights about the concepts explored
  • Inclusion of objectives, summaries, and discussion questions to focus the discussion in each chapter
  • Introduction of a Glossary and Suggested Readings to supplement understanding and encourage further learning

    Instructor Resources: Discussion questions with talking points, questions about case excerpts, teaching suggestions, PowerPoint slides, and a test bank.
