Health care is delivered within the context of a legal framework that reflects the values and expectations of the larger society regarding relationships between providers, patients and organizations involved in the delivery of health services. Health care administrators and practitioners must be familiar with the general sources of law (i.e., statutes, regulations, cases) and the general legal principles that govern and affect their areas of responsibilities (i.e., drug dispensing, Medicare reimbursement), as well as that law which applies to society in general and from which specific health care legal issues frequently arise (i.e., tort law, contract law). Familiarity with the public policy underlying the law is also essential to an understanding of the law's operation.
