THIS IS YOUR BEST INDICATION OF PRODUCT QUALITY. The author is a retired lawyer, instructor and textbook writer. EXCERPT: It is increasingly well documented that some nurses are not taking care of patients because they are instead on their cell phone or tablet at the nurse’s station. Hospitals which employ distracted nurses increasingly face lawsuits. Case in Point: an elderly patient with a fever of 104.6F went to the ER, was triaged and placed in a room. Her husband and a neighbor were with her. After several hours, the neighbor went to the nursing station where there were six staff members using their cell phones. One staff member told the neighbor, “We’re talking to doctors about patients.” Then the patient’s husband went to the nursing station where he saw a nurse reading a book on an electronic tablet. A physician admitted the patient 14 hours after she arrived. 4 hours passed before antibiotics were administered to her. The patient developed sepsis and died. The husband sued for medical malpractice and used discovery to obtain cell phone records of all staff involved. The records revealed that none of the staff’s cell phone usage was work-related. Case # 2: [during cross examination, the attorney introduces posts from the nurse’s personal Facebook page. Says to nurse:] Attorney: Can you read the highlighted portion?
 Nurse: [reading] Oh, wow. Yes. Okay.
 Attorney : Can you read it?
 Nurse: “After enduring the worst day on duty I’ve had in a while, I just found out my next patient has lice. Freakin’ lice! I didn’t even know they still made those! Help!” What most distracted nurses do not realize is that if they are reading Facebook or surfing the Internet, all of that can be tracked with date and time, including the nurse’s personal tech devices and the hospital computers. Whenever an attorney is preparing for a deposition, one of the first things investigated is all social medial posts/pages. These have become gold mines of damaging information to use against nurses in malpractice cases.

Juvenile Rights ~ Constitution ~ USSC Cases - 81 SLIDES

Juvenile Rights ~ Constitution ~ USSC Cases - 81 SLIDES

There are MANY ACTUAL SLIDES on this page. These are your best guide to product quality. This product has three parts: 1) A complete powerpoint presentation on the SCOTUS cases which have shaped Juvenile Law from the 1960s to now. 2) A Flash Card review of this material 3) A multiple choice twenty point test TEXT EXCERPT: Juvenile Law covers those who are not adults. This law has steadily evolved since the 1960s to give juveniles constitutional law protections. This is a big step forward since, prior to then, juveniles were considered legally as the property of their parents. Juveniles obtained these rights because of United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) case decisions which steadily considered how many rights juveniles should be given versus how much protection. The more protection one is given, the more freedom is taken away. As scientific findings kept apace with these legal developments, by the 21st century it was clear that juveniles were “wired differently” from adults and were not mini adults. Qualities like poor impulse control were debated in the courts over grave issues like juveniles and the death penalty. This led to abolishment of the death penalty for juveniles. The purpose of this presentation is to cover major SCOTUS juvenile cases from the 1960s to present day. At the end of this presentation, juveniles should have a much clearer idea about their rights in present day America. They also will know which rights of theirs have limitations. Those rights with limitations do not fully bloom until they pass into their majorities.

This product has MANY ACTUAL SLIDES ON THIS PAGE. Those slides are the best indicator of this product's quality. TEXT EXCERPT: ~ Fred Koch Estate Valuation: $5.6 billion ~ Amount contested: $2.3 billion ~ Feuding parties: four brothers in 2 sets ~ Fred Koch was co-founder of the energy conglomerate Koch Industries. He was also founder and financier of the ultra right John Birch Society. ~ Fred Koch had four sons: Charles, David, Frederick and Bill. ~ issue: whether two of the brothers, Charles and David, cheated the other two, Bill and Frederick, out of $2.3 billion when they sold their shares of Koch Industries in 1983 for around $1 billion. ~ Some background: Fred Koch of Wichita, Kansas, was a staunch anti-communist who drilled his political ideology into his sons. He was sympathetic to the fascist regimes ruling Germany, Italy and Japan in 1938. Fred wrote that he hoped America would resemble these Axis powers which had, “overcome the vices of idleness, feeding at the public trough, and dependence on government.” ~ Fred also liked to see his sons physically fight one another. One hit the other over the head with a polo mallet. Another used a ceremonial sword to pierce his brother in the back. All OK with Fred, sowing the seeds for future discord. ~ Fred recognized his eldest, Frederick, was effeminate (gay was the reality) so he bypassed him for his business, using his brother, Charles, instead. In 1966, he turned over day-to-day management of his company to Charles. ~ Charles’s younger brother, David, joined him. The two changed their father’s medium-sized oil refining business, into Koch Industries, one of the largest privately held corporations in the world. ~ Fred died in 1967 of long term heart disease at age 67. William and Frederick inherited Koch Industries stock. Charles wanted to buy them out. When Frederick refused, Charles sunk to a homosexual blackmail attempt to force him. When Bill (William) refused to sell, he threatened revelations about his personal life, including Bill’s domestic violence against his wife Angela. ~ In 1983, Bill and Fredrick did sell their stock for $800 million in a sale to their brothers, Charles and David. Legal disputes against Charles and David lasted some two decades over allegations that Bill and Frederick had been cheated out of its true value. The four brothers settled their legal differences in 2001. ~ Charles and David are best known to the public for bankrolling the Tea Party Movement.
