Bioethics And The Family: The Cautionary View From Family Law, Carl E. Schneider Jul 1992

Bioethics And The Family: The Cautionary View From Family Law, Carl E. Schneider

Articles

For many years, the field of bioethics has been specially concerned with how the authority to make medical decisions should be allocated between doctor and patient. Today the patient's power-indeed, the patient's right-is widely acknowledged, at least in principle. But this development can hardly be the last word in our thinking about how medical decisions should be made. For one thing, sometimes patients cannot speak for themselves.

Cumulative Trauma Disorders: Osha's General Duty Clause And The Need For An Ergonomics Standard, David J. Kolesar Jun 1992

Cumulative Trauma Disorders: Osha's General Duty Clause And The Need For An Ergonomics Standard, David J. Kolesar

Michigan Law Review

This Note argues that neither the Act nor its underlying policies supports OSHA's current use of the general duty clause to prosecute alleged ergonomics violations and that the only way to protect workers from CTDs fairly and effectively is through the promulgation of an ergonomics standard. Part I examines the purposes of the Act, as well as the function of the Act's general duty clause. Part II analyzes the four requirements of the general duty clause in the context of CTDs and finds that the clause does not apply to CTDs. Part III argues that the Act's ...

Ontario's Proposed New Laws Regarding Consent To Treatment: Ii. Advocacy

Sujit Choudhry

In the spring of 1991, the Ontario government introduced a legislative package that will fundamentally change the way health care is practiced in Ontario and, if copied, elsewhere in Canada.

Internal Revenue Service General Counsel's Memorandum Threatens Tax Exemption For Charitable Hospitals, David W. Ball Jan 1992

Internal Revenue Service General Counsel's Memorandum Threatens Tax Exemption For Charitable Hospitals, David W. Ball

Annals of Health Law

A recent memorandum from the General Counsel of the Internal Revenue Service changes the standard against which tax exempt entities will be measured, which change can adversly affect charitable hospitals' tax exempt status. In addition, the memorandum makes clear that a violation of the Anti-Kickback statute, discussed in Mr. Aaron's article, is inconsistent with tax exempt status.


Patching The Patchwork Quilt: "Reforming" The Medicaid Program - The Medicaid Program - The Medicaid Voluntary Contribution And Provider-Specific Tax Amendments Of 1991, Michael O. Spivey Jan 1992

Patching The Patchwork Quilt: "Reforming" The Medicaid Program - The Medicaid Program - The Medicaid Voluntary Contribution And Provider-Specific Tax Amendments Of 1991, Michael O. Spivey

Annals of Health Law

Congress modified the Medicaid program by restricting states' sources of funding, capping payments to certain hospitals, and altering the relationship between the states and the federal government. While the legislation puts to rest an ongoing dispute between the state and federal governments, it does not improve access to or quality of care nor address fundamental problems with the Medicaid program; it is simply another patch to the patch-work quilt called Medicaid.
