Leading Health Law Educator, Amelda Langslow LLB, examines over 85 court cases dealing with the injury and death of mothers and babies in maternity services.
In these real -life cases you will read how midwives, neonatal nurses, and obstetricians justified their actions in court. Was someone at fault –or were there systemic problems at the hospital? Each adverse incident will prompt the question 'Could this happen where I work?' and encourage reflection through the safe practice issues raised at the end of each chapter.
This practical and accessible casebook, drawn from labour and delivery wards, operating rooms and neonatal nurseries, has been designed to simplify complex legal principles and identify effective risk management strategies that will ensure good practice, promote patient safety - and keep you and your hospital out of court.
