Description: If you expect to be a patient--or even if you don't but become one anyway--what are your rights? Will your requests be honored? Will they even be heard? Do you have to blindly follow orders? Does "patient" status preempt "person" status? Just what can you reasonably expect from your physicians, your hospital, and all the other healthcare workers involved in your treatment? America's leading proponent of patient rights spells it all out for you in this revised, up-to-date edition of his groundbreaking classic The Rights of Patients. Thorough, comprehensive, and easy to follow, using a question-and-answer format in much of the text, The Rights of Patients explores all aspects of becoming an informed patient: hospital organization, hospital rules, emergency treatment, admission and discharge, the patient rights movement, informed consent, surgery, obstetrical care, human experimentation and research, privacy and confidentiality, care of the dying, death, autopsy, and organ donation, medical malpractice and the patient rights advocate. Developed under the auspices of the American Civil Liberties Union, this indispensable guide also contains helpful appendices covering the Patient Bill of Rights Act, the Living Will and Durable Power of Attorney, the right to refuse treatment, how to use medical and law libraries, and similar valuable resources. Everyone is a potential candidate for patienthood. Therefore everyone should be fully informed and aware of his or her rights when facing health crises. The Rights of Patients will give you the knowledge--and the power--to ensure optimum treatment and respect in these harrowing moments.
