N520 Legal and Ethical Issues in Healthcare

Module 1 Assignment

Assignment:

For this assignment, create a PowerPoint presentation based on the following case studies.

Read the case studies and answer the following questions:

Apply Guido’s MORAL model to resolve the dilemma presented in the case study described in Ethical Scenario 4-3 on p. 48 which is titled, “When Care Appears Medically Inappropriate,” (Guido textbook 7th edition).

How might the nurses in this scenario respond to the physician’s request?

How would this scenario begin to cause moral distress among the nursing staff, and what are the positive actions that the nurses might begin to take to prevent moral distress?

Read the following case study and answer the following questions: “You be the Ethicist”, presented at the end of Chapter 3, p. 41, which starts, “Helga Wanglie…” (Guido textbook).

What are the compelling ethical rights that this case addresses?

Whose rights should take precedence?

How might the institutions’ organizational ethics policies have impacted the outcome of this case?

Leaving any legal issues aside, how would you have used ethical principles to decide the outcome of this case, if Helga Wanglie had continued to survive relying on life-sustaining measures?

Now, examine the same Helga Wanglie scenario from the perspective of health care policy.

How would you begin to evaluate the need for the policy and the possible support or lack of support for the policy from your peers, nursing management, and others who might be affected by the policy?

Do the 10 framework questions outlined by Malone in chapter 4 (Guido textbook, p. 50) assist in this process?

Create a proposal for the organization with possible guidelines, procedures, and policies to address the issues you have identified.

Your presentation should be at least 10 slides (not including title, objectives, and references slides) with detailed notes for each slide that addresses each of the points/questions, including audio for each slide. Be sure to handle all the points thoroughly. Use clear headings that allow your professor to know which section you are addressing on the slides in your presentation. Support your content with citations throughout your presentation. Make sure to reference the citations using the APA writing style for the presentation. Include a slide for your references at the end.

Read the case study presented at the end of Chapter 10, which begins “The elderly patient resided at the nursing home for almost a year before she died at the hospital.” (Guido, p. 183)

Did the lack of documentation in the admitting nurse’s assessment and notes affect the ultimate outcome of this case?

What could the nurse have done differently to facilitate a different outcome in this case?

Limits of liability

Declarations

Deductibles

Exclusions

Reservation of rights

Covered injuries

Defense costs

Coverage conditions and supplementary payments

Did you have difficulty finding some of the sections? Would this be a policy that you would consider purchasing for your own liability coverage? Why or why not?

Read the case study presented at the end of Chapter 11, You Be the Judge, which begins, “During an unexpected heat wave,…” (Guido, p. 195):

What provisions of an insurance policy would you consult to determine if an insurance company should pay such a claim, and what would the limits of the liability be?
