About this title

Synopsis:

Legal and ethical issues in nursing continue to increase in scope and importance as the profession struggles with complex technology, impacts of nursing shortages in all practice settings, and increasing demands of consumers. Thus, the need for relevant and current information remains critical. The Fourth Edition of Guido's Legal and Ethical Issues in Nursing meets these needs. Completely revised and expanded in content, it includes new topic areas such as HIPAA, delegation and supervision of unlicensed personnel, environmental safety issues, disaster situations, impacts of the nursing shortage, medication errors, communication, mandatory overtime, nurse-patient ratios, and the medicinal use of marijuana. In addition it will continue to detail content areas found in previous editions including federal law and historical material. Nursing students and nursing professionals.

Fifth Edition

The fifth edition of Legal and Ethical Issues in Nursing continues the tradition of the fourth edition as the essential title that combines legal and ethical knowledge for students and practicing nurses and how they influence the professional practice of nursing.  This influence reflects the expanding autonomous roles of nurses, in the public and community health arena, in acute-care settings, or in long-term and hospice settings.  It also reflects changes in the health care delivery structure, including mandatory nurse-patient ratios, the downsizing or closing of hospitals and other health care delivery agencies, and the continued shortage of professional nurses.

 

New to this edition:

  • Expanded ethical coverage, including a new chapter that applies ethical theories to situations that nurses encounter.
  • A new ethical issues feature highlighting some of the more frequently encountered ethical issues within an area of the law or clinical practice site.
  • Updated information on current laws and their application to nursing.
  • New chapter summary format allows easy review of chapter content.
  • Much of the content is new or updated to reflect the changes in the law and in the practice of professional nursing.
