The line drawn between negligence and gross negligence is undefined and many times is left up to a jury to decide. Negligence can easily escalate to gross negligence if a health care professionals actions, or omission of an action, leads to a person’s death. The line between negligence and malpractice is defined and much easier to determine (Huxley-Binns, 2009). Negligence According to Guido (2010) negligence is a tort, a civil wrong, which is not a criminal offence. Most nurses will not have an issue with committing a negligent act as long as they stay within the confines of standard practices, recognized hospital guidelines, and protocols.
Consent can be a defence to all non-fatal offences and possibly even to homicides, however a person cannot consent to their own death. In the majority of cases, it is assumed that all physical contact is an assault unless a specific defense is applied, whereas the minority state that you cannot consent to an assault. The approach differs depending on the theme of consent that is being investigated. In cases relating to sexual activity and sadomasochist behavior, the law tends to take a more paternalistic approach protecting individuals from themselves, as seen in Boyea where it was held that the victim could not possibly consent to such serious harm, even though she consented to the original act. However when it comes to married couples there seems to be a more laissez faire approach as illustrated in the case of Wilson where a husband branded his initials onto his wife’s buttocks, yet it was held that sexual activity between husband and wife in the privacy of their own home is not matter for criminal investigation.
She begins to investigate further into these hysterectomy cases and realises that the majority of them did not need to be done. She decides to take a stand and make this a known fact. In this assignment I will discuss four human factors in ‘The Whistleblower’ in relation to cognitive dissonance and conclude with my own personal opinion based on safety in the organisation. Cognitive dissonance is an unpleasant state of tension that occurs whenever an individual simultaneously holds two cognitions that are psychologically inconsistent. The first human factor I will discuss is conformity.
That means that if the scales tip just 51% on Pineapple, Atlantis car accident Plaintiff’s side and 49% on the side of the defendant, Pineapple car accident Plaintiff is entitled to your verdict. It only takes a little finger’s weight to tip the scale in her favor—not 75%, not 100%, just anything over half. Furthermore, I’ll remind you that we are not claiming that the defendant did any intentional act, but as the court has told you in Instruction No. 7, we believe that Mr. Davis failed to use that degree of care that a very careful and prudent person would use under the same or similar circumstances. Automobiles are dangerous and under our laws certain precautions and rules have been devised.
Batra Hospital and Medical Research case held that the law of negligence has to be applied according to facts and circumstances of individual case. No one can ignore that medicine is an evolving science, and there is no precise outcome of effect for every person. The operations involve certain calculated risk which cannot be denied because of complication in the operation if some risk is done, the doctors cannot be held liable for negligence as the patient himself has consented to the risk involved in the operation. In another case of Jacob Mathew .V. State of Punjab, the Supreme court held that in some cases of medical profession the doctors are equipped in certain situation where they have to make choices between a devil and the deep sea.
Even though “in some jurisdictions, paralegals are permitted to assist clients in preparing certain documents.”(Goldman, Thomas. F & Cheeseman, Henry. R 2011 pg.44) But that can be a tricky situation because Sally would have to know the law on that subject pertaining to the state she resides in. Legally I do not think there is anything Sally can do to help Molly maybe except tell her she needs to talk to a lawyer or get one of those self-help kits that have legal forms in them. Since Molly says she cannot afford a lawyer she needs to look into whether or not her state offers free legal services or advice.
I think it's wrong because random searches will just lead to profiling which isn’t right. Amendment 4 is supposed to protect us from unreasonable searches unless there is probable cause but once again doesn't random imply that there is no reason to suspect any thing. I don’t do drugs but I just don’t think its fair especially to the people that don’t do drugs and are subject to searches. Students are going to do what they want. A simple drug test
In arguing against the legalization of physician assisted suicide the arguments are often the same and very repetitive covering the same concerns and issues that would arise if it was legalized. The reasons or concerns have to do with the clarity of mind the patient has when the decision is being made, if there’s a medical error, the possibility of a cure, the patient feeling guilty and/or like they are a financial burden, not enough patients would request the PAS, and the slippery slope argument. (Notes from class June 4, 2012). All of these arguments however can be proven invalid, or simply not strong enough to be reason for the illegalization of physician assisted suicide. Clarity of mind has to do with a
