When Antitrust Fails: Public Health, Public Hospitals, And Public Values, Michael S. Jacobs Oct 1996

When Antitrust Fails: Public Health, Public Hospitals, And Public Values, Michael S. Jacobs

Washington Law Review

In the past few years, large operating deficits have led governmental authorities in several major cities to close, sell, or substantially reduce the services of their public hospitals.' These decisions portend the arrival of what the New York Times has called a "looming crisis" in health care for the urban poor and uninsured. Should this crisis unfold, many public health programs are likely to be casualties, including those designed to treat and prevent the spread of communicable disease. Among others, programs aimed at the so-called "new" (multidrug resistant) tuberculosis are especially vulnerable to these compelling budgetary constraints. Poor urban populations ...


In Pursuit Of Health, Richard C. Reuben Oct 1996

In Pursuit Of Health, Richard C. Reuben

Faculty Publications

Managed-care advocates praise its cost controls on treatments for beginning to tame the health care beast, which devoured nearly 14 percent of the nation's gross domestic product in 1994, according to the U.S. Department of Health and. Human Services. Such belt-tightening is necessary to allocate health care dollars rationally, advocates contend, pointing to direct patient costs as proof that a healthy balance has been achieved. But critics contend that managed care is more about making money than saving it. Even though costs have gone down, they argue, premiums have remained high and corporate profits have soared. More significantly ...

Democratizing Hmo Regulation To Enforce The "Rule Of Rescue", Kent G. Rutter

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

Despite heightened public concern about HMOs, misguided regulatory measures have not guaranteed HMO patients access to the treatment options many consider vital. This Note recommends four changes to the current regulatory system that would preserve HMOs' ability to control health care costs while allowing patients and doctors, rather than lawmakers or HMO administrators, to set health care priorities.

The Authority Of A Guardian To Commit An Adult Ward, David M. English

Faculty Publications

Placement in a mental health facility may be made through either a voluntary or involuntary commitment. Involuntary commitment usually requires a number of protective safeguards, including a court hearing, the appointment of counsel, and the meeting of a statutory criterion such as danger to self or others. Voluntary commitment is much more informal, with a written application and clinical assessment being all that is normally required. Most voluntary commitments are made upon application.of a patient who has the ability to give informed consent. But in a substantial number of states an individual also may be committed by his or ...

The Use Of Respite In Crisis Emergency Services: A Two Year Analysis, Anne D. Kuppinger, Mary E. Evans, Roger A. Boothroyd, Marleen Radigan Apr 1996

The Use Of Respite In Crisis Emergency Services: A Two Year Analysis, Anne D. Kuppinger, Mary E. Evans, Roger A. Boothroyd, Marleen Radigan

Mental Health Law & Policy Faculty Publications

Respite care is widely believed to be an important service for families raising a child with a disability. All caregivers need a break from time to time, and the need may be even greater when the caregiver is coping with the additional stress associated with a child's disability. A number of studies have demonstrated that respite care can improve family functioning (Cohen, 1982), reduce stress (Rimmerman, 1989; Wickler & Hanusa, 1990; Appoloni & Triest, 1983), and delay out-of-home placement (Cohen, 1982; Upshur, 1982) for families with a child who has a disability.
