Nursing and the law

David Carson, J. Montgomery, E. Montgomery

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This book presents and explains those parts of the law which are relevant to the nursing profession. It aims to inform nurses of their rights, and those of their patients, and demonstrate that the law protects rather than threatens them. After introducing the legal system, the authors relate the relevant parts of the law to particular groups of patients. They have attempted to make the book accessible to those who have no prior knowledge of the legal system.
