Discussion Postings
There are questions, cases, scenarios, and ethical dilemmas/issues that are listed in the Discussion Forum. Over the course of this semester, you need to read and respond to 5 of these topics. Read each of these carefully and make sure you answer all parts of the question(s). The topics seek to demonstrate your understanding of the readings assigned, as well as current events, and provide an opportunity for you to express your opinion on the topic.
Some further guidelines:
• All questions should be done on an individual basis.
• Post your answer in the Discussion Forum under the appropriate heading. If you do not post it in the correct location, or you post after the deadline, you will not receive credit.
For this part of the assignment, we will not be using assignment formatting protocols for spacing and margins. Please post your assignment by typing your summary or reply directly into the Discussion Forum; please do not double-space your posting and please do not use the attachment function to attach your Word file. You can (and I encourage you to do this!) create your message in WORD, spell and grammar check it, and then cut and paste it into the message box. By doing this, you decrease the likelihood of losing points due to common writing errors.
• In addition to posting your response in the appropriate Discussion Forum, you will also need to submit it to the appropriate Dropbox. By doing so, I will be able to provide feedback to you regarding your response and you will be able to view your grade for the assignment.
• All answers should address the question(s) thoroughly. This means at least 2 pages to answer the questions. Also, make sure you answer ALL parts of the questions. Your answers should provide insight into your knowledge and opinion on the subject, as well as what the prevailing thought is among the experts in the field.
• Please explain the issue using sources and facts, and provide a thorough explanation of how you feel about it (your opinion). If you use sources beyond your own opinion, these sources (including the text) should be referenced appropriately within your response and a list of references should be supplied at the end of your document.
It is recommended and encouraged that you read your peer’s postings to gain insight from their experiences and opinions; however, it is recommended you do this after you post your own assignment. Often, students inadvertently retain some of what they read in a previous posting and their own posting reflects this (which can be construed as plagiarism or copying).
Here are the Discussion Questions –
I will make it easy for you. If you still have the 4 page papers that you did for me, you can write about those two (2) in the Discussion Assignment. However, it cannot be plagiarized from the 4 page assignment. You have to write the discussion from your own words, and answer the discussion questions accordingly.
Discussion #1 – Staffing Shortages Due 7/12/15
Jenny is the nursing supervisor on duty at Metropolitan Hospital, responsible for staffing all of the units for the next shift. She knows that the critical care unit requires two licensed personnel at all times, as well as no more than 1:2 nurse-patient ratio. Three nurses are scheduled and the census is low – only three patients, of whom two are stable. Meanwhile, there is a staffing crisis on two other floors, where one unit is two nurses short and the other is one nurse short. Jenny could easily pull two nurses from the critical care area, send them to the units that are scrambling, and replace one with an unlicensed nursing assistant, without running any real pateint-care risks. Are there any ethical issues involved in this situation? How should such situations be handled?
Discussion #2 – Breach of Confidentiality Due 7/12/15
What breaches or violations of (patient) confidentiality have you observed, either in your own use of health services or in your work place? What could be done to reduce or eliminate those violations?
Discussion #3- Private vs. Professional Conduct Due 7/12/15
Bearing in mind that one may not have a responsibility to “blow the whistle” on unethical behavior in every case, which of the following do you think raise serious professional ethical questions or concerns? Why those and not others? What, if anything, would you do about each case? Paula is a member of your staff who: (a) runs the smoking cessation program but, offsite, smokes two packs a day. (b) has embezzled funds at your church; the board has decided not to publicize or prosecute, since Paula seems genuinely sorry and has agreed to return the money. (c) has soft-core pornography discreetly mailed to her at work to conceal this interest from her husband and children. (d) houses (or employs) illegal aliens at home.
Discussion #4 – Whistleblowing Due 7/18/15
Why is whistleblowing so costly to the whistle-blower? What are some responsible ways to resolve concerns about unethical or unlawful practices short of “going public?” Do you think health care staff ought to be financially rewarded for blowing the whistle on their employers? Why or why not?
Discussion #5 – Technology Creating Dilemmas Due 7/18/15
What are some examples of new technologies that create ethical dilemmas? What, exactly, are the ethical problems they create?
Here is an example of a Discussion Assignment so that you can get an understanding of what you should write and the length of it. (Whistleblowing)
Whistleblowing is the disclosure by a person, usually an employee in a government agency or private enterprise, to the public or to those in authority, of mismanagement, corruption, illegality, or some other wrongdoing (The Free Dictionary, 2015). To some, whistleblowers are just in it for the money, while to some, it is them doing their duty and companies should not be getting away fraud. Unfortunately, it is not an easy task and comes with its share of consequences.
Whistleblowing is costly to the whistleblower because while some may be protected from losing their job, some will be dismissed from their jobs, lose friendships, stress can take its toll on marriages, one’s health, and ostracized in the work place if still remaining at the organization in question. Careful consideration should be taken before considering blowing the whistle.
Listening to certain cases of whistleblowers and hearing the large payouts, one would think well if they lose their jobs and get paid millions, then what is the harm? Well not all cases come with monetary rewards to blow the whistle and cases can go on for years before settlement is reached if there is a reward to be received.
Before “going public”, one could opt to go to their management and discuss the issues or report to a whistleblower line at work if available. I personally think it best to discuss with the powers that be at your place of employment first. This gives them the opportunity to investigate the allegations themselves and correct actions if needed. In the case of Elin Baklid-Kunz, Director of Physician Services at Halifax Hospital Health in Daytona, she says she tried to get her bosses to address the wrong doing being done there which was Medicare fraud and admission of patients for unnecessary hospital stays. Baklid-Kunz spoke of her treatment by her employer like being kept out of meetings and coworkers not speaking to her, but holds strong to her convictions that she did the right thing for the public.
That being said, how do I feel about the whistleblowers being financially rewarded for blowing the whistle? It’s interesting that the whistleblowers are blowing the whistle because they are ethically doing the right thing, but I am not sure if I think them getting paid for it may not be ethically right either, but I can understand why it is done. If the person or persons blowing the whistle loses their job or may find themselves having to leave their jobs because the environment they are in makes it hard mentally to be there, then this person would need a means of survival financially. Once it is known that you blew the whistle on your present employer, there is a strong chance once the story has made it to the media and your name is out there, you may be find yourself unemployable.
In a case involving a Northrop Grumman employee that blew the whistle on his employer for improperly billing the government for airplane parts, the case went on for 17 years. He remained employed for a while but says he was locked out of the computer and could not do his job. He eventually left and could not find a job in his career. He had received over 400 rejection letters from potential employees.
In the Halifax case that I mentioned, the whistleblower Baklid-Kunz remained in her position the entire time with a pretty decent salary of $92,000 per year, but stands to receive millions to be divided between her and her lawyers. In this case however, I am thinking that she was not in need of money because she never lost her job. She may not like the way she was being treated but it wasn’t bad enough for her to leave either. The case has been since 2008 and she remained in her position since she was protected by the federal law. I think I am more on the side of compensation based on the circumstances. I will venture to say that the healthcare employees that blow the whistle are more likely to keep their jobs and in these situations and therefore should not be compensated once they have kept their job and is okay with choosing to stay at their place of employment.
Looking at it from a whistleblowers point of view, what would be the incentive, to turn my life upside down potentially for years and the possibility of being left to not be able to support myself and my family? If I could not be compensated in some way for saving the government from fraud and a continuous loss of money to the company involved, then I may not see it feasible for me to blow the whistle. Whistleblowing does raise ethical dilemma, but I think when it is all said and done, each person will have to do what is right for them and their family, weighing both the pros and the cons.

 Scenario 1

Jane is a hardworking licensed professional counselor who has a very successful private practice. Jane has not had a vacation in over a year. She is feeling the stress and burnout and knows she needs to do something quickly for her own mental health. Thus, she decides to go on vacation for a week. She quickly makes the arrangements and then emails all her clients with whom she has appointments during the week of vacation, informing them of the need to cancel. She fails to let her other clients know she will be gone, and, since none of her clients are in crisis, she decides to not worry about getting someone to cover her clients while she is gone.

 Scenario 2

John is a counseling intern working for an outpatient facility that specializes in alcohol and drug addiction recovery. John has been interning with the facility for 9 months. He is particularly involved in co-leading many of the groups at the facility and has gotten to know many of the clients. Overall, John really likes most of the clients at the center. One evening, while checking his email, he notices a friend request for his personal Facebook account. John recognizes the email as originating from Ben, one of the clients at the center. John has enjoyed his interactions with Ben, so he grants Ben his request. A few days later Jeanne, another client at the center, emails John with her request to befriend John on Facebook. John is not as fond of Jeanne because she is often argumentative in group. John decides to deny the request, explaining to Jeanne he does not befriend women.

Scenario 3

Amy is a professional counselor in a private practice. She is currently in graduate school working on her Ph.D. in Counseling, so money is tight. Amy attends a seminar, given by Live Healthy Industries, on making extra money by selling their line of multivitamins and homeopathic remedies. Seeing the opportunity to make some extra money and really believing in the benefit of vitamins and homeopathic remedies, Amy signs up to become a representative of the company. As part of her marketing strategy, Amy places advertisements for the products in the waiting room of her office and on her professional web page. Several of her clients begin inquiring about the products they are seeing in the advertisements on Amy’s web page and in her waiting room. Soon, Amy has several of her client’s buying the products, and Amy’s money problems resolve.

Scenario 4

Robin is admitted to an intensive residential facility for drug addiction. During the first week, she is given a number of assessments including the Beck Depression Inventory, the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, and the Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory. Robin wonders why she is getting the inventories and how they will be used. Finally, six weeks into her admission at the facility, Robin asks her therapist for the results. She is told that clients are not allowed to see the results or any other part of their records.

Code of Ethics assignment

In this scenario, you will evaluate the Code of Ethics to determine if John Anderson has violated International Widgets’ Code of Ethics by engaging in business with a competitor.

Your Role

The human resources department worked with management to carefully craft a Code of Ethics. All employees received a copy of the code and were required to sign off stating that they had read the code and agreed to abide by its conditions. If an issue concerning an employee occurs, the human resources department investigates. As the assistant director of human resources, you are asked to evaluate an employee’s behavior. You meet with Gloria Smithson to obtain all information needed to begin your investigation.

Gloria Smithson

Gloria has now been in business for 2 years. Her business is called International Widgets, and she employs more than 300 people in the business headquarters. In the early stages of the business, she created a Code of Ethics to govern employees’ behavior. Recently, one of her salespeople, John Anderson, seems to be underperforming. Historically, he has been a stellar employee and salesperson, bringing in new clients every month. However, over the last 6 months, not only has he not brought in any new business, but 30% of his accounts have gone to a competitor. Even with this downturn, John was on the road 5 days a week and continued to submit expense reports. Is this ethical?

Janice Marshall

Janice is the director of human resources at International Widgets. Recently, Janice met with Gloria to let her know of a rumor in the company that John was actually steering some of his accounts to a competitor because the competitor gave him a kickback.

John Anderson

John has been employed by International Widgets for 14 months. He likes his job but was recently approached by a competitor with an offer he could not refuse. The competitor wanted to expand his domestic market and asked John to work with him for a few months. He asked that John provide him with the names and phone numbers of the customers he services. He said he didn’t want John to get into trouble with International Widgets so he would contact the customers and not John. However, he told John that for every customer who left International Widgets, John would receive a “1% payment from the customer’s first order.” John didn’t think he was doing anything wrong. He has two children in college and needs the extra money, plus he could continue to try to work with the customer to stay with International Widgets.

You are the assistant director of human resources. Janice Marshall has asked you to review the Code of Ethics to determine if John has violated its provisions. You are to prepare a paper that addresses the following.

Evaluate International Widgets’ Code of Ethics at the conclusion of the You Decide scenario. Are there any provisions which would prohibit John’s behavior? Please explain.In addition to a possible ethics violation, are there other legal avenues that International Widgets could pursue against John or its competitor? Review your textbook and library references to assist you in answering these questions.Is John in a fiduciary relationship with International Widgets? Why or why not? Is he an agent of International Widgets? Identify the duties and responsibilities of an agent and whether or not John is fulfilling those obligations. Review your textbook and library references to assist you in answering these questions.What action should Gloria take involving John?

Assignment requirements:

When preparing your responses, please use the facts provided in the You Decide and the following resources: (a) the assigned reading and (b) the DeVry Library.Your paper will be graded using the Week 7 You Decide Rubric.Your paper should be four to five pages long, exclusive of the cover page and references page, and double-spaced. It should comply with APA 6th edition formatting.Cover page References page12-point, Times New Roman font No website references Include at least three scholarly references in addition to your textbook Include in-text references to sources

Case outline and discussion 1500 words
The case study approach to ethical dilemmas is detailed below.
Students are required to write an outline of an ethical dilemma presented to them in their own workplace, home or community (Related to aged people). In addition, they will give an analysis of, and discuss the dilemma according to the attached ethical case study guidelines and reference to the literature.
CASE DISCUSSION GUIDELINES
A case study is an exercise designed to assist the investigator to understand a problem by gathering relevant information and proposing a possible solution. “Case Study” for the purposes of this assessment task is to select and describe a situation related to an ethical problem. You may like to choose a case from your own work place, home or community.
Suggestions for structuring your case study:
Van Hooft et al (1995) developed a strategy for ethical decision-making (See week 4 Further Reading). Please read this and you can apply this strategy to your case. This ethical decision-making strategy is a framework for thinking, which assists in making a rational or reasonable choice, in contrast to making a guess or acting on ‘gut feeling.’ It is a framework that applies to practical situations and to ethical problems by giving special consideration of an ethical nature, at each step of the decision-making process. This strategy assists you to identify constraints and the criteria for a good solution.
Problem solving in ethical decision-making is more complex than ordinary problem solving and often there will be no clear-cut or generally agreed outcomes. Although competence in ethical decision-making does not mean always producing the one and only right answer to the problem, it does, however, mean arriving at a reasonable decision, which is sensitive to the relevant features of the situation. It is a decision which has been made thoughtfully and which you can explain to others, giving reasons for adopting this solution rather than the other possible solutions, which were open to you.
CASE STUDY STRATEGIES
1. Define the problem. A common mistake is to think of a problem as an ethical one but then to try to solve it as though it were a legal or a bureaucratic one. It is important to formulate the problem so that it is clearly an ethical one and try to solve it according to ethical considerations. Matters of law or nursing home policy may come into the process, but they are not the overriding considerations.
2. Gather information. Identify information that is missing, uncertain or misrepresented?
3. Identify constraints. This step needs special attention in ethical problem solving. Some constraints rule out certain solutions. Different views about constraints are one of the sources of disagreement in ethical decision-making. Think about the kinds of constraint that impact upon your decision-making process
4. Generate possible solutions/courses of action. Requires creative thinking. One important possibility to keep in mind is non-action or non-intervention.
5. Identify criteria for judging best solution. This can be largely personal and subjective in ordinary problem solving for example, personal taste or personal opinion. Be aware that the criteria for deciding what counts as an ethically good solution is somewhat more fixed than this. If the decision is to be an ethically sensitive and a reasonable one, the criteria used must represent a set of generally accepted ethical values.
6. Evaluate possible solutions/courses of action according to ethical concepts and principles. This is not always straightforward, because the precise meaning and application of a principle is not always evident for example, beneficence.

Ethics case analysis

FACTS: THE Decision Sciences Institute, Inc. sent email ballots to its members for their use in amending their Constitution. The Members were not required to sign their ballots. A review of the membership roster used to send the email ballots disclosed that 18 members did not receive ballots.  The Decision Sciences Institute Inc. did not preserve copies of ballots cast and it is not known whether or not all other members received ballots.  It is known that approximately 500 of about 1,400 members in fact cast ballots and there is anecdotal evidence that some members to whom email ballots were sent did not receive ballots because of junk mail filters and the like.  had their servers set to reject email from addresses not on their “friends” and “favorites” lists or from businesses with whom they had previously agreed to transact business with electronically.     The Board intended to amend the Constitution to remove regionally elected vice presidents from the Board.  However, the ballot did not offer any amendments to ARTICLE VII, the composition of the Board.  Undaunted, the Board that conducted the balloting removed the regionally elected vice presidents from the board.  This has caused a many members to resign and the regions to reconsider their allegiance to the Institute because their representatives were removed from the board without a vote by the Members.   Over the past 40 years the Regions have served the professional development needs of about 68,000 faculty members in their annual meetings while the Institute has served the professional development needs of about $44,000 Members in its Annual Meetings.
 
You have been called in as a consultant by Members and you are now being asked to determine the legality of the balloting and the ethical issues raised by the Board’s action in removing the regionally elected representatives from the Board.
 
ARTICLE XVII—CHANGES IN CONSTITUTION                 No article shall be added to this Constitution and no part shall be amended or annulled except by written ballot sent to all Members. A change in the Constitution requires a two-thirds affirmative vote of the Members returning said written ballots within 30 days after their mailing to the Member.
ARTICLE VII–BOARD OF DIRECTORS
1. Composition.              The Institute’s Board of Directors shall consist of the President (who serves as Chairperson), the immediate Past President, the President-Elect, the Secretary, the Treasurer, and Vice Presidents, one elected by each of the Regional subdivisions and an equal number of Vice Presidents elected at-large, and the Executive Director as an ex-officio member.
BYLAW 3: TERMS AND DUES Section 1. Terms             (a)  The fiscal and tax year of the Institute is from July 1 through June 30.               (b)  The membership term is from July 1 through June 30.        (c)  The officer term is from April 1 through March 31.                    (d)  The President shall serve for one year and automatically become Past President.                    (e)  The President-Elect shall serve for one year and automatically become President.   (f)  The Secretary and Treasurer shall serve two-year staggered terms.    (g)  Vice Presidents shall serve two-year terms, with the terms of office of the Vice Presidents elected by the Regional subdivisions staggered, and the terms of office of the Vice President elected at-large staggered.
THE STATUTE OF FRAUDS.   The Statute of Frauds requires that any contract for services that cannot possibly be completed within one year must be in writing to be enforceable.
