Ethics Study 1 Ethics Case Study HCS/335 Ethics Study 2 Jerry McCall is a LPN who is also trained in medical assistant and those types of trainings do not allow nor qualify him to call in a refill or write a prescription for Valium or for an antidepressant medication. The reason that Jerry is not qualified to call in the prescriptions is because in order to call in or write a prescription you have to be a licensed and qualified nurse practitioner or a doctor. Even if Jerry had the consent from Dr. Williams to call in the prescriptions he would not be able to because he is not qualified. It will not make a difference what type of medication it is because his qualifications will not allow him to write or call in any type of prescription period. If the patient is in a critical need for their medication the only thing that Jerry can do is try his best to get a hold of Dr. Williams so he can call in the prescription or he can advise the patient to go in to the ER to seek care if they cannot wait for the doctor to come back from lunch break.
This paper will address why Jerry is not qualified to refill any prescription medication. If Jerry is protected if a lawsuit is filled. Jerry’s decision is a tough one, legal and ethical issues and advice will be provided for Jerry’s use. Jerry’s medical training does not qualify him to issue a refill order as well as the pharmacy law. A licensed practical nurse is below a registered nurse level and not even an RN can do this.

Ethical Dilemmas and Stewardship 5 May 2013 LDR-800 Ethical Dilemmas and Stewardship Grand Canyon University This paper was prepared for Leadership 800, Ethical Dilemmas and Stewardship Taught by Dr. Virginia Green Introduction This paper will compare three empirical articles on leadership that relates to the ethical use of power, authority, persuasion, and or motivation. Within every leader lies a set of leadership styles which sets leaders apart from others. How leaders relate to the ethical use of power, authority, persuasion and motivation is what makes the leader more distinct. In Eddy S. Nig’s and Greg J. Sears (2012) article, “CEO Leadership Styles and the Implementation of Organizational Diversity Practices: Moderating Effects of Social Values and Age”, Nig and Sears investigate how CEO leadership styles and attitude influences diversity management practices within organizations. In Adebimpe Lincoln (2012) article, “Nature of Leadership Practices of Nigerian Female Entrepreneurs”, Lincoln explores diverse types of entrepreneur’s styles of leadership, mainly female entrepreneurs in Nigeria.
IT is however important to note that Natural Law thinkers are not concerned with the consequences of actions, whether they bring good or bad doesn’t matter but what matters to them is whether the action itself is good or bad. Kantian Ethics would also further disagree with Fertility Treatment as the Categorical Imperative says that people must be treated as ends in themselves. If an embryo is a life then the destruction of spare embryos during IVF would be seen as using them as a means to an end. Further if the embryo was experimented upon instead, and the embryo
Using the predominate purpose test the blood transfusion was a service performed to provide healthcare not to sell the patient blood, so, Article 2 would not apply, it would fall under common law. I don’t think there is really a right answer here because the U.C.C. doesn’t give guidance on mixed contracts and courts have come up with varying conclusions on how to tackle this issue. In Perlmutter v. Beth David Hospital the court refused to impose liability for a breach of warranty because it found that the predominant purpose of the contract between the patient and the hospital was for restoring the patient’s health which is a service. The blood transfusion was considered an incidental transfer of property made while performing that service.
Secondly, parents should oppose vaccinating their children as a way of protection from developing autism because of the significant step of banning mercury from being included in vaccines, which was taken by the US government related to this matter (Campbell, 2004). Although the government did not openly admit that mercury poisoning could be a possible cause behind the autism epidemic, parents must remain aware to the fact that if this issue was serious enough for such action to be taken, then vaccinations are not as safe for children as health authorities want everyone to believe. Finally, parents should not vaccinate their children if they want to protect them from developing autism because enough evidence exists to support the claim that vaccinations could be to blame for the rise in autism (Kirby,

These authors are doctors in their respective fields at National University, and this article was published in a peer-reviewed journal. Using a variety of different scientific tools Smith and Mitry (2008) clearly explain the problems, illuminate the solutions, and discuss, imply, and recommend ways to help online education realize its true potential.
Explain your answer. There is no standard for EMR systems, people in hospitals need to change the way they work. Besides, building a new record keeping system can cost a lot, and it is more difficult to make it functional. 3. What is the business, political, and social impact of not digitizing medical records (for individual physicians, hospitals, insurers, patients, and the U.S. government)?
One argument against creating a legal scheme that limits insurers' ability to use genetic information is that, by doing so, insurers do not have access to valuable information with which to determine individual rates. Some argue that insurance companies already use actuarial data to estimate risk and charge smokers, elderly people, or individuals with significant family history higher premiums based on epidemiological
