Synopsis

In The Perinatal Nurses Guide to Avoiding a Lawsuit, Pat Connors shares her 10 years of experience and the expertise she acquired working as a legal nurse consultant and nurse expert. Working with both plaintiff and defense attorneys, combined with 40 years as a perinatal nurse, affords her a unique ability to educate perinatal nurses as to factors that might lead them to become involved in the dreaded LAWSUIT. At one time, physicians were considered the captain of the ship and nurses were expected to do little more than take and follow orders. Todays nurses, well educated, autonomous and expected to possess critical thinking skills, now often find themselves responsible for many tasks once assigned to physicians. The complexity of maternal-child nursing has placed higher demands for assessment and vigilance. This book targets those areas that make perinatal nurses vulnerable to and prime targets for a lawsuit. The Perinatal Nurses Guide to Avoiding a Lawsuit is replete with case studies and resources highlighting areas of litigation for which perinatal nurses are at greatest risk and addresses strategies to reduce those risks.
