BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

SAN JOSE, Calif.-Business Insurance Senior Editor Judy Greenwald has won second-place in the feature article category of the American Society of Business Press Editors' 1997 Editorial Excellence Competition for the West/Midwestern Region.

Ms. Greenwald's May 20, 1996, article, "Liability at Life's End," provided an in-depth look at the liability exposures hospitals may face from not complying with advance directives, such as do-not-resuscitate orders. Those threats range from litigation over medical bills once the patient is revived to charges of battery, pain and suffering from having family members removed from a patient's bedside as doctors intervene.

The story also contained practical advice for hospital risk managers on how to ensure that the patient's wishes are respected and that the liability exposure to the medical facility is reduced.

Ms. Greenwald, who joined BI in 1984 in New York, now is based in San Jose, Calif.
