The Rights of Patients
The Authoritative ACLU Guide to the Rights of Patients, Third Edition
Now in its third edition, The Rights of Patients offers fully documented exposition and explanation of the rights of patients from birth to death. This concise reference covers topics such as informed consent, emergency treatment, refusing treatment, human experimentation, privacy and confidentiality, patient safety, and medical malpractice.
The Rights of Patients is an invaluable resource not only for patients and their families but also for physicians, hospital administrators, medical and nursing students, and other health care workers.
"The Rights of Patients is the Bible of patient rights."
—Charles Inlander, President of the People's Medical Society
"In this remarkable book, the nation's foremost authority on health care law provides crucial advice for asserting your rights in the increasingly complex and uncaring medical bureaucracy. A must-read, this book provides a compassionate and workable blueprint for a healthy and just future for us all."
—Lori B. Andrews, Chicago-Kent Law School
