Legal and Ethical Principles in Health Care

GCU HLT 520 Week 1 Discussion 1

A patient is in a coma that appears irreversible. His mother, who is his surrogate, firmly believes that he

will recover and that God is taking a hand to work a miracle if everyone will just wait long enough. She

wants everything done for the patient, including resuscitation if he arrests. She insists that he stay in the

hospital, and is very upset that he was transferred out of the ICU and his care was moved to comfort

measures, rather than aggressive treatment. The mother does not speak English and is strong in her

religious beliefs. The physicians for the patient are very upset and concerned about continuing to provide

care that they believe is futile. The patient is developing a serious pneumonia, and the mother wants it

treated aggressively. The physicians are reluctant. Analyze this case from the ethical principles of justice,

benevolence, non-malfeasance, and autonomy.

GCU HLT 520 Week 1 Discussion 2

In this time of limited financial resources and reduced government payments for health care services,

what are the ethical issues of limiting care? How much uncompensated care can hospitals absorb?

where do people with no res ources go for care

Where do people with no resources go for care? What is the state’s responsibility to ensure health care

services? What are the ethical considerations that should be taken into account?

GCU HLT 520 Week 2 Discussion 1

Discuss the four components of a valid contract and apply them to a contract with a vendor to purchase a

new CT scanner. What would you include in the contract? How would you be sure it would be valid?

GCU HLT 520 Week 2 Discussion 2

Since the hospital/patient relationship is considered a contract of sorts, how is it affected if the patient

decides to disconnect himself from telemetry and leave the hospital for 4 hours to go score some cocaine

on the street? What would you do as a hospital administrator in this situation?

GCU HLT 520 Week 3 Discussion 1

If a physician develops a history of disruptive behavior, belittling staff, cursing at coworkers, and being

rude and curt to patients, what are the responsibilities of the medical staff, the hospital, and the other

professionals involved? Why do you believe that so many staff may be reluctant to report a poorly

behaving physician?

GCU HLT 520 Week 3 Discussion 2

What do you see as the pros and cons of obtaining fair market value analyses on the compensation paid

to physicians, especially when the market rates are benchmarked against national standards? How could

this information be used in negotiating rates with physicians?

GCU HLT 520 Week 4 Discussion 1

Discuss your opinion of the Stark laws, what they are designed to do, the impact of the exceptions, and

whether you think they are successful in preventing unethical behavior.

GCU HLT 520 Week 4 Discussion 2

What kinds of fraudulent or abusive behavior relating to health care services can occur in hospital

operations? How does the role of the compliance committee help to monitor and prevent these?

GCU HLT 520 Week 5 Discussion 1

You are a hospital administrator, and you receive a call from a colleague at another hospital. Your

colleague, who is a friend, informs you that he has received a demand for a stipend from the

ophthalmologists who take ED calls at his hospital, and they want a sizeable raise. He asks you what you

pay for that type of call and suggests that

pay for that type of call, and suggests that you could both benefit by coming up with a standard rate of

pay over which neither of you will go in response to physician demands. It could save your hospitals

$300,000 to do this. What is your response, and what is the rationale for it?

GCU HLT 520 Week 5 Discussion 2

Do you think that hospitals who engage in group purchasing organizations are engaging in a form of

price-fixing? If yes, then why? If no, then why not?

GCU HLT 520 Week 6 Discussion 1

Examine the concept of “employment at will” and the public policy exceptions to it. How does it fit with the

issue of “wrongful discharge?”

GCU HLT 520 Week 6 Discussion 2

What do you see as the pros and cons of a unionized environment in a health care facility? How can the

right to collective bargaining by employees and the mandate to provide care to patients be reconciled?

GCU HLT 520 Week 7 Discussion 1

Explore the issues of how to determine if a patient is mentally competent to make his or her own

decisions, especially in situations where the decisions do not appear to make sense.

GCU HLT 520 Week 7 Discussion 2

What are the differences between a permanent vegetative state and a coma? How do these differences

affect the ethical choices faced by the family and caregivers of the patient? What impacts should the

patient’s own wishes have? How would the presence of a living will impact the decision?

GCU HLT 520 Week 8 Discussion 1

A baby is born with anencephaly, or absence of the entire brain above the brainstem. The brainstem is

intact, which means that the baby can breathe and have a heart beat and blood pressure, but there is no

chance for any human brain function or cognition, due to this birth defect. The health care team begins to

educate the mother, since children with this deficit generally die shortly after birth. However, the mother is

devoutly religious, and her minister has told her that if she prays hard enough to God, that God will work a

miracle and her baby’s brain will heal itself. She is insistent that all possible care be given to her baby,

including a months-long stay in the ICU, constant care by a caregiver, regular brain scans, and other

expensive modalities. The hospital, finding her adamant, asks the court for guardianship of the baby, with

the medical plan to provide only maintenance care with no life-prolonging techniques until the baby dies.

what are the ethical issues at play here

What are the ethical issues at play here? How do the principles of autonomy, beneficence,

nonmalfeasance, and justice manifest themselves? If you were called as an ethical consultant, what

would you do/recommend?

GCU HLT 520 Week 8 Discussion 2

A 94-year-old woman is admitted to your hospital with dehydration, trouble breathing, and possible kidney

failure. She is clearly in advanced Alzheimer’s, weighs about 95 pounds, and shows multiple bruises on

her body. She cannot talk. Her caregiver attributes the bruises to a blood disorder that reduces clotting.

What are your thoughts about this situation? What kind of investigation would you conduct? What actions

would you take to be in compliance with ethical principles

GCU HLT 520 Week 1 Ethical Study Review

Details:

Scenario: A 96-year-old male patient is admitted to the ICU with terminal liver cancer. He is confused and

disoriented, very skinny and appears underfed, and is covered with bruises, which are common in

patients with liver disorders. His daughter, who is a naturopathic physician, insists that she can cure her

father by administering unknown substances, some of which smell like feces and look like tar, down his

NG tube. He is clearly in pain after she does this. She insists that these are life-saving interventions on

her part, but the nursing and physician staff caring for the patient are very upset and concerned that she

is hastening his death. They have come to you for help.

1) Write a paper (1,250-1,500 words) that describes how to use the method of ethical decision making,

reviewed in the module, to help resolve this ethical dilemma. Address the following to generate your

conclusions about how you would proceed:

1. a) What are the dimensions of the ethical dilemma?

2. b) What are the issues?

3. c) Apply the four core ethical principles and the process of ethical decision making.

2) Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the

Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

a new direction.” The physician has filed notice of intention to sue.

1) As the hospital administrator, write a paper (750-1,000-words) that explores the options for defending

the suit in court, going to arbitration, going to mediation, or structuring a settlement. Include the pros and

cons of each option and end with a recommendation to your board of directors on which avenue to

pursue.

subsequently arrested and died while under anesthesia. An investigation concluded that the patient was

not receiving the needed amount of oxygen and the nurse-anesthetist missed the changes in the vital

signs until the patient was close to cardiac arrest. The surgeon initially had assisted in positioning the

patient and had helped to administer some of the initial anesthetic.

superior” would cause the surgeon to have vicarious liability for the patient’s death.
