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. For another, patients· make medical decisions in contexts that significantly include more participants than just the patient and doctor. Now, as this conference demonstrates, bioethics is beginning to ask what role ...


The Upc And The New Durable Powers, David M. English Jul 1992

The Upc And The New Durable Powers, David M. English

Faculty Publications

This article thoroughly explores the escalation of interest in durable powers of attorney, with particular emphasis on health care powers and advance directives. The author focuses on durable power legislation influenced by the Unifomi Probate Code and health care power and advance directive statutes enacted in response to recent decisions dealing with the withholding or withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment.

Screening And Treatment Of Newborns, Ellen Wright Clayton Jan 1992

Screening And Treatment Of Newborns, Ellen Wright Clayton

Vanderbilt Law School Faculty Publications

With the advent of new genetic technologies and the Human Genome Initiative, interest in the problems posed by genetic diagnostics in general, and by genetic screening in particular, has surfaced. Many recent works focus on the problems posed by the "new genetics" in the contexts of prenatal diagnosis, carrier detection, employment, and insurance. In the midst of all this discussion, the routine testing of newborns for genetic disorders seems relatively uncomplicated and has, in fact, become "a part of common practice and accepted public policy with little thought having been given to the implications." The relative lack of concern about ...

Health Care Dollars And Regulatory Sense: The Role Of Advanced Practice Nursing, Barbara J. Safriet Jan 1992

Health Care Dollars And Regulatory Sense: The Role Of Advanced Practice Nursing, Barbara J. Safriet

Faculty Scholarship Series

Our current health care "system" has been criticized for providing too little
care, too late, for too few people, at too high a cost. In this Article, Dean
Safriet argues that these problems require a fundamental restructuring of
existing health care delivery systems and more effective utilization of all health
care personnel. Dean Safriet urges immediate legislative reform to reduce the
restrictions that currently constrain advanced practice nurses, especially nurse
practitioners and certified nurse-midwives. Advanced practice nurses have
demonstrated repeatedly that they can provide cost-effective, high-quality
primary care for many of the neediest members of society, but their role in ...


Lead Poisoning In Children: A Proposed Legislative Solution To Municipal Liability For Furnishing Lead-Contaminated Water, Anthony J. Bellia Jan 1992

Lead Poisoning In Children: A Proposed Legislative Solution To Municipal Liability For Furnishing Lead-Contaminated Water, Anthony J. Bellia

Journal Articles

Lead poisoning has become one of the most widespread and serious environmental diseases facing children in the United States. In response to the problem of childhood lead exposure, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has promulgated expansive regulations to reduce drinking water lead levels. However, the regulations are not without significant gaps and shortfalls. Many improvements that the EPA requires need not be in place for years, and some households at risk of unsafe lead exposure receive no regulatory protection at all. One question that arises amidst these regulatory gaps is whether a plaintiff can hold a public water system liable ...


Murder, She Wrote Or Was It Merely Selective Nontreatment?, George P. Smith Ii Jan 1992

Murder, She Wrote Or Was It Merely Selective Nontreatment?, George P. Smith Ii

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

This article will both explore and thereby establish the medical, ethical, and legal validity of selective nontreatment of severely handicapped newborns. A construct for principled decision-making, tied to a basic recognition of the right of self-determination, as shaped by compassion and validated principles of triage and cost-benefit analysis, will be seen as the most effective means for the states-and not the federal government-to evaluate the intensely complex issues associated with allocating scarce medical resources to defective infants. Governmental intrusions into the familial decision- making forum in these circumstances must be kept to a minimum and allowed only in grave cases.


The "Gag Rule" Revisited: Physicians As Abortion Gatekeepers, Maxwell Gregg Bloche Jan 1992

The "Gag Rule" Revisited: Physicians As Abortion Gatekeepers, Maxwell Gregg Bloche

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

To the surprise of many and the dismay of some, the U.S. Supreme Court took it upon itself last term to proclaim a national compromise on the question of abortion. The Court's announced truce, an elaboration on Justice O'Connor's "undue burden" idea, is pragmatic in design but unlikely to prove stable in practice. The three justices who spoke for the Court disparaged Roe with reluctant praise, then upheld its outer shell on the ground that social expectations and the need to sustain the appearance of the rule of law made it impolitic to do otherwise. This ...


Corporate Takeover Of Teaching Hospitals, Maxwell Gregg Bloche Jan 1992

Corporate Takeover Of Teaching Hospitals, Maxwell Gregg Bloche

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

This article explores the potential and the dangers of this novel form of collaboration between academic medicine and the for-profit world. The author focuses on those arrangements--purchases and leasing agreements--by which investor-owned corporations operate, for a profit, hospitals that serve as major medical teaching and research sites. He begins by reviewing how the evolving needs of academic medical centers and for-profit hospital chains have generated mutual interest in such arrangements. The author then considers some frequently expressed ethical, economic, and other public policy objections to the provision of hospital services by for-profit firms. Opponents of the acquisition and leasing of ...


Tales Of Two Cities: Aids And The Legal Recognition Of Domestic Partnerships In San Francisco And New York, David L. Chambers Jan 1992

Tales Of Two Cities: Aids And The Legal Recognition Of Domestic Partnerships In San Francisco And New York, David L. Chambers

Articles

Here are two stories. They are of the quite different ways that domestic partnerships of lesbian and gay couples have come to be recognized, for some purposes, in San Francisco and New York City. I tell the stories for their own sake, but with a particular focus on the role that AIDS played in the political process in each city.
