Legal Aspects of Elder Care

Planning, providing, and evaluating geriatric care raises a wide variety of legal issues for health and human services practitioners and those who advocate for, develop, and enforce the public policies within which services are delivered. This text offers excerpts from selected statutes and regulations, judicial opinions, and the legal and health care journal literature, as well as commentary on these materials, discussion questions and hypothetical cases, and suggestions of other information sources for the teacher and student. Ideal for courses or programs in health administration, nursing, law, ethics, social work, or gerontology, this text will stimulate class reflection and interaction regarding the meaning and relevance of key legal concepts for the present or future health care professional. For the healthcare professional, it will inform and sensitize those who will deal with older persons about some of the current and potentially emerging legal issues they may encounter in providing services to older patients/clients, and to help them respond intelligently to legal issues and the responsibilities they impose.
