Should Asbestos In Buildings Be Regulated On An Environmental Or Occupational Basis?, Dean M. Hashimoto, Troyen A. Brennan, David C. Christiani Dec 1991

Should Asbestos In Buildings Be Regulated On An Environmental Or Occupational Basis?, Dean M. Hashimoto, Troyen A. Brennan, David C. Christiani

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

The issue of asbestos abatement in buildings may be viewed as part of a larger and more fundamental scientific and social issue: Should asbestos in buildings be regulated on an environmental or an occupational basis? The environmental approach to regulation of hazardous substances has a different emphasis from that of an occupational approach. The environmental approach emphasizes abatement of property damage, while the occupational approach is more concerned with decreased exposure levels and compensation for injuries to health. Similarly, the justifications for the two approaches also have a different emphasis. The need for environmental protection is justified on the basis ...

Paradox And Pandora's Box: The Tragedy Of Current Right-To-Die Jurisprudence, Cathaleen A. Roach Oct 1991

Paradox And Pandora's Box: The Tragedy Of Current Right-To-Die Jurisprudence, Cathaleen A. Roach

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

Part I of this Article examines the trilogy of recent right-to-die cases and contrasts the results of those cases with recent national opinion polls and statistical surveys of the issue. Part II examines federal and state legislative responses to the debate. It suggests that both the courts and legislatures are out of sync with an emerging national consensus on the death-with- dignity debate. In fact, the federal legislative response may only exacerbate the problem. Instead of creating new rights, it feeds individuals into the existing state network, which is a quagmire of confusing and inequitable statutory provisions. Part III examines ...


Doctors At Risk: A Problem As Viewed By Decision Analysis, Leonard P. Caccamo, Kimbroe J. Carter, Barbara A. Erickson, William R. Johnson, Edward Kessler Sep 1991

Doctors At Risk: A Problem As Viewed By Decision Analysis, Leonard P. Caccamo, Kimbroe J. Carter, Barbara A. Erickson, William R. Johnson, Edward Kessler

RISK: Health, Safety & Environment (1990-2002)

The authors closely analyze a case in which a Peer Review Organization cited a physician for treatment with potential for significant adverse effect. They also critique the regulatory scheme under which peer review occurs and conclude that such regulation interferes with physicians' primary obligations, fails to encourage cost-effective behavior and may decrease the quality of medical care.

Experimenting With The "Right To Die" In The Laboratory Of The States, Thomas A. Eaton, Edward J. Larson Jul 1991

Experimenting With The "Right To Die" In The Laboratory Of The States, Thomas A. Eaton, Edward J. Larson

Scholarly Works

The purposes of this Article are twofold. Our first purpose is to reexamine the legal foundations of a patient's right to refuse treatment. The Court's equivocal handling of the federal constitutional issues in Cruzan v. Director, Missouri Department of Health invites a closer look at state constitutional, statutory and common law. The source of the underlying right will affect state experimentation with substantive and procedural rules in this area. Our second purpose is to describe the current status of the states' experiments with the right to die. That is, we elaborate in more detail on the state constitutional ...

Age Variations In Risk Perceptions And Smoking Decisions, W. Kip Viscusi Jan 1991

Age Variations In Risk Perceptions And Smoking Decisions, W. Kip Viscusi

Vanderbilt Law School Faculty Publications

The results of a national survey of smoking risks and smoking behavior are analyzed. Smoking risk perceptions follow the expected patterns given age differences in risk information acquired and differences in information associated with smoking status. Risk perceptions are greater as one moves to younger age cohorts, where overall lung cancer risks are substantially overestimated. These risk perceptions in turn have a negative effect on smoking decisions, where younger individuals behave no differently in terms of the manner in which they incorporate risk perceptions into their smoking decisions.

Securities Funding Of Long-Term Care: A Step Toward A Private Sector Solution, Dana Schilling Jan 1991

Securities Funding Of Long-Term Care: A Step Toward A Private Sector Solution, Dana Schilling

Fordham Urban Law Journal

This Article proposes a new system of fudning long-term care that contemplates the issuing of securities. This mechanism is designed to supplement or supplant private insurance and to enable the private sector to play a more significant role. This Article considers the current funding alternatives for nursing home care, and specifically explores the types of facilities already in existence to serve the elderly in need of nursing home services. This article proceeds to explore the concept of a health care consortium, and discusses the various legal implications of the plan.
