Case Study on Interwest Healthcare Shanair Mills Saint Leo University Case Study on Interwest Healthcare In this case study there are a few things that happened that might have caused the problem. The entire approach to the corrective training of data entry was not done tactfully. We are told that, “the hospital staffs are not being careful when entering data into the firm’s management system” (Brickley, Smith, &Zimmerman, 2009, p. 38). Manzoni is the CEO and gets the reports so she can verify that there is an issue. Singh should not have had to convince Manzoni that a problem exists.
However the newspaper published an article ‘Scandal of Docs with AIDS’ implying that the Department of Health and Social Security were trying to hide the fact that these doctors were continuing practice. The ethical dilemma of who had the greater rights the doctors not to have their patient confidentiality breached or their patients right to know that they were infected with the virus will be discussed. The AIDS/HIV Discrimination Act, The Data Protection Act and The Cauldicott Principles will be discussed as they have a huge impact on patient confidentiality. Relevant court cases, journals and media articles will be studied and Griepp’s model of ethical decision making will be applied. Patient autonomy has changed patient attitudes towards doctors over the last 30 years.
When guidelines are not followed, due to employees abusing their privileges, it places the hospital at risk. Another issue here is that the HIPPA laws is being violated, which was specifically placed to protect patient’s private information. HIPPA was established in 1996 to make it easier for people to keep health insurance, protect the privacy and security of health care information, as well as help the healthcare industry control administrative costs (“HIPPA,” 2013). Failure to comply with HIPPA accordingly will lead to civil and civic penalties. If someone knowingly and deliberately distributes or obtains patient information, they could face a fine
Littlejohn was later convicted of voluntary manslaughter while armed. Farooq claim that the security firm failed to properly supervise the security staff hired by John Doe. She claimed that because the hotel assigned an employee to interact with John Doe and the security team, the hotel must have had control over the security personnel and should be held liable for their negligent supervision. She said the security staff was negligent because it did not find the knife that Littlejohn brought to the party, even after searching attendees before they entered the room. The U.S District Court, District of Columbia said that even if Farooq’s claims that the hotel had control of the security were found to
Some patients were also made to shower with their clothes on. The program un-covered serious abuse within the Hospital and there was a public outcry. Several people wrote to the Prime Minster who was reportedly “appalled” by the findings. The national regulator Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) involvement, Ms Margaret Flynn was asked to investigate what was happening at the Hospital and undertake a Serious Case Review. Whilst investigating she spoke to patients, workers, NHS staff and family members and learnt that there was a high level of physical intervention by the staff and some of the patents very badly hurt with some seen to be self-harming.
George Keyworth was not a ethical person because he leaked confidential information and also let a investigation be opened, instead of being honest. CEO Dunn showed an ethical attitude and was forced to resign by board members, which describes the other board members to be unethical also. 2. Who are the stakeholders impacted by this situation? How would you rank their claims? Everyone related to this company is affected by this situation.
In order for this act to be considered sexual harassment, the person been harass must acknowledge the harasser that his or her act is inappropriate and unacceptable. And if that person (the harasser) continues, than a sexual harassment complaint should be filed against that person. The issue of sexual harassment is that both men and women are victim of it in the workplace. But from my past experienced and my personal connection to this topic, majority of sexual harassment victims are women which I think it is not fair at all and something needs done about. My first personal connection to this topic is dated back to 2002 when my little sister was sexually harassed by a male worker at work and the second time was early this year when a co-worker of mine was also harassed by a male worker.
According to American nurses association disclosing patient's details without their permission is considering breach of confidentiality (ANA, 2012). Disclosing patient's information is against medical ethics. Hippocratic Oath and Nightingale Pledge mentioned the importance of patient's confidentiality and the healthcare staff's commitment towards keeping patient's confidentiality (American Medical Association, 2014). All healthcare should ready to follow code of ethics for maintain the standard of patient care. Breaching of confidentiality may lead to weakening the relationship between healthcare staff and patients.
It seems EMC has violated a few laws by discriminating against the women in their company. Female employees have complained that “EMC subjected saleswomen to demeaning sexual comments, company-paid trips to strip clubs, and retaliation against women who complained.” (Noe, Hollenbeck, Gerhart, & Wright, 2009) Other allegations, including managers withdrawing accounts female employees had advanced and administering them to male colleagues, a women’s boss looking past her for a big account because she refused to participant in smoking, drinking, swearing, hunting, fishing, and tolerating strip clubs, and claims that when the company looked at employment decisions they focused mostly on individuals’ sex, pregnancy, and marital and parental status, support these accusations. Evidence shows that women at EMC have earned less than men with the same amount of experience, with a minimum of $39354.00 difference in their paychecks a year. These accusations violate the Equal Pay Act of 1963 which mandates that men and women fulfilling equal jobs earn equal pay, the Title VII of CRA that demands that discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin not be tolerated, the
What I did wasn’t worth getting me and my friend in trouble. I apologize to my friend and Ms. Tubiolo for turning in work I didn’t do and trying to take credit for it. I made my parents really mad at me and to make them think that I have cheated more than once before. I treated my parents wrong by doing what I did they do everything for me and all I do is make them mad at me. Ms. Tubiolo isn’t stupid and knows when someone is cheating and I deserve what she gave me.
