Law for Physicians: An Overview of Medical Legal Issues focuses on the legal issues that affect physicians in their professional lives, with the aim of arming them with the practical knowledge they need to protect themselves. From malpractice claims and fraud and abuse issues to employment discrimination law and physician unions, you'll get sound advice from health care experts. In a simple-not simplistic-fashion, the authors allay unwarranted concerns while casting light on potential legal pitfalls. This book includes topics such as: Physician unions-to familiarize physicians with the means by which they can voice their concerns and wield meaningful leverage in their service contracts. How to avoid enhanced civil and criminal penalties due to health care fraud and abuse. Medical malpractice issues to help physicians head off potential claims, advise them on the choice of liability insurance, and explain the litigation process. Guidance on employment discrimination law to aid physicians in avoiding employee litigation. A thorough glossary offering simple definitions of legal terms, and an annotated index of computer databases and Internet sites for on-line resources.
