By Rev. Gerald Kelly, S.J. Impr. 1949.
This rare book, though some would say is dated, provides critical information that will never be out of style. This valuable book gives the "New Hospital Code" - "to give clear guidance in a world of confusion" of correct morality in medical procedures. The list of procedures shown in the Contents seems surprisingly complete, whereas the old code was limited only to surgery and this book deals with moral problems of a non-surgical nature and includes topics like Unnecessary Surgery; Disposal of Dead Fetus; Procedures that involve Serious Risk to, or Destruction of Life (and how to morally proceed); Induction of Labor and dozens of others.
323 pages of vital information to help one form their conscience in medical matters.
