This book is intended to meet the needs of students and clinicians in determining how they should be recording their practice and what the legal implications of these records may be.
The authors first examine the realm of nursing documentation, including the legal implications of current methods of recording. In Part II the book presents the basis for liability in terms of nursing negligence and risk management. The third section explores documentation and its legal implications with respect to the delegation of patient care and across the range of in-patients and outpatient settings.
