Patient Care as the Anchor for Healthcare Law, Compliance, and Ethics - Cases in Vulnerable Populations, Obligations to Provide Care, etc.
Patient care is central to all we learn in this class. Protection of people's rights and dignity are in the foundation of providing care, reporting on care, charging for care, and planning for future care. These are the considerations from which most liability in healthcare also arises. So, as managers in healthcare environments, we must understand the legal contexts surrounding patients and their care.
Case 4: Ethics in the Workplace - Privilege to Provide Care - Government Regulation of Public Health & Healthcare Services - Medical Staff Membership and Clinical Privileges
There are a myriad of laws and regulations impacting healthcare providers. While some of these tie to the federal interest to protect the public health and promote quality of care (such as professional licensure and accredidation, and clinical privileges); others are specifically targeted toward workplace ethics, safety and equality of the healthcare workers themselves. Together these provide the foundational cornerstone of our current US health care delivery system.
