Description - Psychiatric Malpractice by Robert I. Simon
What are the facts about psychiatric malpractice? Is it on the increase? If so, how rapidly? What areas of psychiatric practice pose higher risks of legal liability? The anxieties and uncertainties created by the increased threat of being sued for malpractice can interfere with the psychiatrist's provision of good clinical care to patients. Through a general overview as well as a discussion of specific legal cases, this volume informs the clinician about the major malpractice traps in everyday psychiatric practice.
