Note: There is no time frame during which the case must have occurred for this assignment. Please note, however, that any case selected must be analyzed in the context of laws and policies that existed at the time of the case in addition to current laws and policies.
Perform research in the University library using at least 8–10 relevant peer-reviewed academic or professional journal articles that were published within the past 5 years, and complete the following to prepare your report:
Analyze the ethics of the case from each end of the ethical spectrum (ultraconservative to ultraliberal) from the perspective of 3 of the following stakeholders:
· Patient,
· Patient’s immediate family or guardians
· Emergency medical personnel or first responders
· Doctors, surgeons, specialists, or other medical providers
· The hospital or health care facility
· A pharmaceutical or medical device company
Identify policies at the federal, state, and local levels relating to the provision of health care and patient rights that played the following roles in the case:
· Assesses opposing views of these policies from the perspectives of the provider and patient
· Analyzes the implications of these policies on the operations of health care organizations
Identify at least 3 state or federal laws that are relevant to the case, and complete the following:
· Evaluate key legal factors that are inherent in the case.
· Assess various policies and procedures that are inherent in these laws that relate to the provision of health care by providers or patient rights.
Differentiate between the demands of legal policies and ethical issues with relevance to the needs of the provider and patient.
Formulate an assessment of the potential impact of the case on decision-making options in the future for providers, patients, and administrators.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
