REVIEWS AND OPINIONS
the ethics of full disclosure
In general discussions on ethics, it is easy to choose the right choice because there are no real life consequences to the actions that are made. In reality, choosing the most “right” decision can be difficult, as these decisions can have lasting consequences and have a number of variables. In the example of the Paradise Hills case, the physicians choosing not to tell patients about a medical error could have been the "right" decision if it caused additional and undue stress for the patients to do so (Perry, 2002). However, this reasoning when weighed against all of the other reasons for not telling the patients ... market research, surveys and trends
ethical problem solving. any healthcare administrator is dealing ...
I believe, it can be challenging to solve the problem ethically. However, since healthcare executives set an example for their employees, it is very important for them to pay close attention while addressing ethical dilemmas. In my opinion, medical errors are one of the most challenging issues to solve. Looking at the situation described in my previous posting and also at the Paradise Hills Medical Center story, where governing board and physicians decided not to disclose the information that the number of patients received wrong amounts of radiation during their treatments, it is clear that these type of issues are not easy to ... market research, surveys and trends

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Has U.S. Healthcare Reform by politically combining delivery ...
By remaking the health and wellness delivery system to insure more equality and fairness is the U.S. guaranteeing conflict with America’s typical ideology about individual liberty (i.e., opportunity) and will this ultimately force us to become ever more industrial in healthcare delivery? I also can’t help but wonder if an underlying reason that the attacks have been so ruthless on both sides of U.S. Healthcare Reform is that by shifting to insurance for almost everyone, life expectancies will likely shift up and down within various demographic populations. Maybe we sense this, but have yet to define it, much less ...
