1 Review
The Medical Record as a Forensic Resource describes what a medical record is, what it should contain and how to acquire, review, and report on its content. It contains valuable information on the basics of malpractice and personal injury litigation as well as how the medical chart review can be integral to the proper adjudication of a case. A must for anyone working in the legal field, this book will also educate readers without a legal background on the basics of malpractice and personal injury.

Read for research on the Forensic Nurse. Did not find any information on standards of practice established by the organizations and did not find any information on the legal ramifications of not enough liability insurance.
