Social services should have removed Andy from her care because she could not care for him. I did not think they should have put him in the Los Angeles County because no child should be in a place like that. According to the textbook, Tower-Crosson, (2010). “Protective workers involved in the assessment process learn to ask specific question designed to assess the potential risk of the home situation to the child and the capacity of the parents to cope with child rearing. The interviewing process is an integral
While the physician did not believe that, at the time of treatment, the patient was competent to make this decision, the patient had an advanced directive that clearly stated that he did not wish to be intubated. Provision 2.1 of the ANA Code of Ethics also directs that the nurses primary concern is always for the patient and the best interest of the patient while Provisions 3.1 and 3.2 discuss the nurses responsibility for providing the patient with privacy and confidentiality, all of these provisions were ignored, to a degree, during the course of this scenario. While the scenario describes Mr. E as having a mild developmental disability we do not know his actual level of competence at the time the advanced directive and the medical power of attorney was signed. Just because he has a developmental disability does not mean that the disability was severe enough that the patient was unable to comprehend the choices he made when instituting these
The nurse in the article made an unethical decision to bring home the patient private information and disclose it with her husband. The decision that the nurse made affected the clinic she worked. Sometimes it takes for one person to be at fault and jeopardize the whole organization. The nurse unethical behavior led to her termination of employment
Paula wanted to continue working for NewCorp but did not want to continue working under Sam, therefore she applied for a transfer to the wire-coating department. Sam blocked the transfer citing that because Paula could become pregnant that department would not be a good fit for her. By blocking the transfer Sam has now made NewCorp liable for discrimination charges under Title VII. Title VII make it unlawful for companies to discriminate against persons based on their sex. By not allowing the transfer based on the fact that the chemical used in this department could harm a fetus makes this disparate-treatment discrimination.
c) I don’t believe my organization complies with all of the requirements because I don’t work so this does not apply. d) No one is responsible in my organization to make sure these compliance laws are met because once again I do not work so this does not apply. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA): a) It is important because it helps everyone out in a time of need and also keeps personal information safe from the public unless authorized. b) It impacts your IT environment because it lets everyone know what is supposed to be private or what how they are protected in a time of need. c) I don’t believe my organization complies with all of the requirements because I don’t work so this does not apply.
In this case study Jerry Mccall takes a call asking for a prescription refill, the person requesting the refill isn’t a normal patient of Dr. Williams he states he is a close friend. This situation puts Jerry in a real tough place, however Jerry is not the doctor and shouldn’t issue refill request to anyone including
The HIPAA privacy standards make up the HIPAA privacy law. Any violation of the HIPAA privacy rules can leave a healthcare institution open to legal consequences from the wronged individual and possibly the federal government. In this case our elder Mr. Stevens had made it clear to his provider that he did not want his family to be made aware that he was being treated for cancer. This fact was documented in Mr. Stevens’ electronic medical record, but that should not have made any difference in this scenario because his condition would never have been revealed if the clinic staff had followed proper HIPAA
If the medical imaging professional was listed in the paper then the time of his arrest his employer should have been notified. His employer then should have taken disciplinary action against the professional as a code of conduct and standard of care. In this case I would think that the facility would be held in neglect. He or she should have been deciplined, whether it is suspension or community service. Medical negligence means a breach of the health care providers duty to follow the applicable standard of care, which results in harm to the
For example, side effects of appropriately prescribed and administered chemotherapy are an example of adverse events not caused by error (Hoy, 2006). Medical errors should be disclosed to patients for a number of reasons. Because of their fiduciary relationship with patients, physicians have an ethical responsibility to disclose errors to them. To withhold this information undermines the public trust in medicine and damages the therapeutic relationship between physician and patient. In fact, patients may be caused additional, avoidable harm by failure to disclose because they lack information that would allow them to receive appropriate treatment should further complications arise (Hoy, 2006).
The declaration also says the subjects should be volunteer's, in which these men were not exactly volunteering. The men came forward and agreed to the study because they were deceived of its real meaning and were enticed by free medical care. The wrongs of the Tuskegee study 3 The declaration then continues by saying the investigating team should discontinue research if it seems harmful to the subject, in this case the doctor's continued with the study, withholding treatment from the men knowing this disease could eventually kill them. These actions leave me to believe the doctor's had no concern for the over-all well being of their patients. Science and society should never take precedence over the well-being of the subject, yet in The Tuskegee Study the PHS was more worried about what their findings could do for science then they were with their participants health condition.
