What is Brent’s Law? Can I read a copy online?
Nancy Brent replies:
Thank you for your interest in “Brent’s Law”. That title is the name of the column that appears on www.Nurse.com. I hope you are checking the column regularly for the responses posted to reader’s questions that are sent to Brent’s Law. Although not specific legal advice, the column is a way to learn a little about many legal issues faced by today’s practicing nurses.
If you need a text on law and nursing practice, there are many that you can select from. In addition to general texts (and articles), there are specific books on law and specific areas of nursing practice. An easy way to search for these books is to place “law and nursing books” or “legal issues in ER nursing ” (as an example) in your search bar and review the listed results.
