This is a digest of laws and court decisions (with citations) on numerous cases involving hospitals, arranged alphabetically and covering such subjects as abortion, autopsy, contracts, drug and liquor regulations, and incorporation, making it worth the price to any hospital administrator. The appendix contains, in addition to other things, a directory of hospitals and sanatoriums in Michigan; some national and state agencies concerned with hospital problems, and the Essentials in a Hospital Approved for Interns by the Council on Medical Education and Hospitals of the American Medical Association. Unfortunately the "Essentials" quoted are the March, 1925, edition, thus failing to give some important requirements that have since been published. The book relates primarily to Michigan, but much of it is applicable to hospitals anywhere.
