Discussion Posting 4: Legal and Ethical Dilemmas in the News
Clinicians and administrators, and ultimately the organizations for which they work, have duties and responsibilities they must adhere to each and every day. Unfortunately, we hear about breaches of these duties and responsibilities far too frequently.
Find a current (preferably within the past year ) health care example of a breach in ethical and/or legal duty from either a clinician, manager, employee or facility. Provide the link of your news source as well. Discuss the dilemma, the lacking ethical principles, and what could have been done to avoid the incident.
Please note that there is a difference between ethical theories, ethical principles, and virtues-values. Refer to Chapter 1 for further information.
Please indicate in your post the terms used from class / textbook using bold, highlighting, or underline. Talking around a concept without identifying it is not enough. (updated 10/20/2015 at 9:20am)
Remember to respond to at least 2 of your peers with constructive feedback. At least 1 FULL paragraph should be provided. I am looking for application of principles that have been discussed in your textbook. Practice looking at the dilemmas from the various view points and considerations.
