My employer also has a duty of care for staff members, to ensure that working conditions are safe, and suitable to deliver the service. SHC 24 – 1.1 Question 2: Describe how duty of care affects your own role. Give examples where possible. Duty of care affects my own role by: - first of all make sure I have all trainings done and I am prepared to do my job - my induction is done- - I have to make sure that individuals are safe and I do the best I can for them - I have to follow instructions and procedures - I have to use proper equipment. - keep the high standard of hygiene etc.
In this case, the supervisor should have approached Human Resources sooner and allowed them to make the decisions to breach the privacy and confidentiality. If there is a real risk of harm to the patient or other persons, a breach such as this could be warranted, but each case should reviewed separately and one person should not be making this decision (Mair, 2011). Business research is critical to a manger’s decision making, but ethical research is a very important part of the process. Information should be free of manipulation and confidentiality should be maintained to protect all parties
CQC’s aim is to promote improvements in care, and safeguard by making sure a high quality of care is provided and will take legal action if care providers do not met standards, or if they believe service users are at risk. Social workers assess the needs of individuals, and have access to different services of support and protection. They working together with other services such as doctors, community nurses, occupational therapists ensure that they are getting the care and support needed to live happily and have a good quality of life Police investigate any allegations of abuse and will arrange support and protection for the individual, they take action against abuse for example they will gather any evidence to build a case so the abuser can be prosecuted. Medical professionals such as Doctors, Nurses can examine the individuals for any marks/bruising and treat and medical problems as well as collecting medical evidence and being an expert
Employees should also be kept informed of any new infections contracted by individuals they are caring for. Employers should provide PPE for all employees. Risk assessments should be carried out on all individuals to minimise the risks of infections braking out. 2.Understand legislation and policies relating to prevention and control of infection. 2.1 Outline current legislation and regulatory body standards which are relevant to the prevention and control of infection.
Management and certain workers should acquire education on drug seeking behavior among patients and workers (Harldorsson 2007). Clinicians need to be taught about the regulations concerning control use of substances and the ethical rules and regulations that follow them. It is essential for doctors to understand their moral duty to their patients and to their employers. Cases concerning ethical violation tend to destroy the reputation of the employers (hospitals), ruining the name of the hospital. It is the work of the health practitioner to acquire knowledge on how to help a patient who gets control drugs from online pharmacies.
BTEC Unit 4: Principles of Safeguarding and Protection in Health and Social Care. Outcome 1 Explain the different actions to take when abuse is suspected and alleged. Identify ways of ensuring that evidence of abuse is preserved. Contain an appropriate image. Where a member of staff in a care setting believes a vulnerable adult is being abused it must be reported immediately to his/her Manager or senior, unless that person is himself under scrutiny, in such a case the matter must be reported to higher management.
This paper will discuss confidentiality, confidentiality breach implications, ethical principles, alternatives and ethical committee applications to an ethical dilemma. Implications When There is a Breach of Confidentiality The promotion of a trusting and working relationship between the healthcare provider and patient is an obvious reason to maintain confidentiality in healthcare. Releasing personal information to a third party without prior consent of the client is known as a breach of confidentiality and also has legal ramifications.

These regulations influence care settings as staff are likely to use cleaning products or store these products that could be dangerous.

COSHH 2002 is to protect people against danger to health, by instantly and long-term from
Some policies should include the inability to process family/friends’ transactions and disabling cell phone and personal email use during work hours (except for emergencies). I would also enable supervisory programs that can track employee work history and set web portal controls through organizational databases. Video surveillance would be an important addition to the physical security plan in order to conduct investigations in the event of an actual incident. Hard drives and USB sticks should be banned unless they are considered company property and used appropriately. Since email monitoring tends to be controversial, it might be beneficial to look into software programs that can trace anything communicated through company technology that would be considered a threat instead of monitoring every
Fifth, the physician assisted suicide should only be carried out in a meaningful doctor patient relationship. A physician should not be forced to participate in any act they deem unethical. Sixth, consultation with another experienced physician is required to ensure it is a sincere request. The patient and immediate family should attend counseling sessions to emotionally prepare for “treatment”. And lastly, all the steps should be clearly documented using an electronic video source, and through the patient’s paper file.
