ESSAY: LEGAL AND ETHICAL DILEMMA CASE STUDY EVALUATION

As we have seen, healthcare and medical technology is constantly evolving. The law often struggles to keep up with the fast progression of the health field. Choose a topic such as sterilization, artificial insemination, surrogacy, organ donations, clinical trials, genetic discrimination, stem cell research, chronic disease, infectious disease, end-of life, or another growing field and a state or federal legal case based on this topic. There are good case ideas in your textbook.

Your Portfolio Project provides an opportunity to evaluate a real-world ethical dilemma from the perspective of the healthcare/hospital administrator. You will use your skills and knowledge of ethics and health law as well as role playing to create a risk management plan for prevention of future situations to present to your Senior Leadership team and the Board of Governors.

Write a 12-15 page report evaluating your chosen topic/case and providing recommendations on how your facility can avoid legal ramifications while still maintaining your mission, values, and ethical principles. Your report should address the following substantive requirements:

  • Description of the topic/case, including who it would affects and what it means for your facility.
  • Assessment of the case from the following perspectives:
    • Ethical—describe the ethical principles involved and expectations for all involved.
    • Legal—define and argue the legal implications for each party. Explain health laws involved in your topic and a major court case that relates to your topic, as applicable.
    • Regulatory compliance—examine regulatory standards and compliance involved.
  • Evaluate and recommend how your facility can abide by state and federal laws on the topic. If no laws currently exist at the state or federal level, how should your facility proceed on the topic?
    • Health reform—illustrate how this case and your role as administrator are different now due to changes in health law and expectations from health reform.
    • Recommendations—argue at least three recommendations for your facility to deal with this topic
    • Action plan for prevention—create an action plan for prevention explaining how you would implement these recommendations.
