Ethical Decision Reflection Holly Regan HSM/230 October 30, 2013 Vicki Grant Ethical Decision Reflection The ethical decision in question that was in need of addressing was the Responsibilities of and toward Clients and the Public, which states services are to be delivered honestly, openly, and professionally and with compassion and respect for the clients served.
