HCS 335 Week 2 Ethical Health Care Scenarios (2 Papers) recent
This Tutorial contains 2 Papers
Scenario 1: Medical
coding in a physician practice
Imagine you work in a high-pressure cardiology physician office
and you are one of two medical coders. Your supervisor is very focused on the
greatest reimbursement to satisfy revenue projections for the physician
practice. As a result, you are asked to “up-code” billing. How can
the pressure of acquiring the maximum repayment for services lead to
manipulating or falsifying documentation?
Scenario 2: Administration
of patient medications in the hospital setting
Imagine you are a recent graduate nurse working nights on a busy
medical unit. You just received a recent patient who needs to be admitted to your
unit, and you just finished medicating a patient with a narcotic injection with
a dose greater than ordered. Clearly understanding medication errors may lead
to patient injury and even death, explain why a clinician may choose to NOT
report the incident.
Scenario 3: Not
hiring a qualified individual because of discrimination
Imagine you are a recent human resources director in a nonprofit
organization and pressured to not hire Middle Eastern candidates by the
organization’s CEO. In the United States, discrimination against people based
on their ethnicity, race, or cultural orientation is strictly forbidden under federal
and state laws. Ethical discrimination may result in the breeding of ill
feelings at work, as well as reduced productivity. To eliminate these
ramifications, organizations need to put forth increased effort in curbing
ethical discrimination in the employment sector. What are some interventions
organizations can put in place to prevent discrimination?
150- to 350-word response for each ethical scenario. Include a title page with
your name and your responses.
