Elderly Care Medicine

Front Cover
Cavendish, 2000 - Law - 223 pages
The health care needs of the elderly differ substantially from those of younger patients. This book provides lawyers with readily available information on common clinical problems that lead to allegations of negligence, for example falls and fractures. In addition, the book includes notes on common ethical problems encountered by professionals looking after the elderly, and again, those which may lead to litigation. Each chapter ends with a case history outlining the facts of a case, allegations made and outcomes.
