about

The protection of vulnerable adults is an emerging area of work for local authorities and other agencies, both statutory and independent. Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults and the Law is the first book to set the safeguarding of vulnerable adults in a legal framework. The breadth of law relevant to this area is wide, covering everything from social services, NHS functions and regulation of health and social care providers, to mental capacity, human rights and environmental health. The book focuses on vulnerable adults harmed by abuse, neglect or omission. This includes people with learning disabilities being insufficiently protected by local authorities and NHS patients suffering gross lapses in standards of care, infection control, nutrition and basic dignity in acute hospitals.
