A clinician, attorney, educator, and medico-legal consultant, Fiscina analyzes the interaction between law and medicine by presenting legal issues and principles derived from clinical situations familiar to attending physicians, medical students, and others involved in health care.
The case studies will permit physicians to observe and assess whether or not their professional conduct is legally acceptable. The cases allow Fiscina to explore the legal implications of the physician’s conduct under varying clinical circumstances. Each chapter traces specifically the way the law measures performance of clinical tasks. Because medical practice necessarily involves many instances of choice and decision, knowing the legal points of comparison generally applied will permit more rational and assured choices when questions arise. Some of the case studies contain facts and circumstances that should alert a physician to the presence of questionable circumstances and propose the reasonable (in the legal sense) course of action.
