Reviews
Review Quotes
"Obstetrics is an area fraught with concern over adverse outcomes and significant litigation risks. This material is needed in the risk management field. The authors take an interesting approach to include the informed consent process with disclosure." - Deborah Boyd, MS, RHIA, CPHRM, Senior. Risk Management Consultant, Zurich North America, Atlanta, GA "There has been increased evidence placed on the patient's right to know and malpractice litigation in obstetrics continues to soar. It will be a great resource for health care risk managers, obstetrical clinicians, attending physicians, residents, and nurses." - Robin Maley, BSN, MPH, president, Maley Healthcare Strategies, New York "It is unusual to see a book like this by authors with kind of experience and interest that James Woods and Fay Rozovsky possess. This book has the potential to become the definitive text on informed consent and disclosure of adverse events." - Nancy A. Moree, RN, MA, CNAA, Patient Safety Officer, Department of Veterans Affairs, VA New Jersey Health Care System,East Orange, New Jersey
