HCS 335 Week 3 Individual Assignment Ethical Health Care Scenarios


Review the following scenarios.

Scenario 1: Medical coding in a physician's practice

Imagine you work in a high-pressure cardiology physician's office and

you are one of two medical coders. Your supervisor is very focused on

the greatest reimbursement to satisfy revenue projections for the

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 new graduate nurse working nights on a busy

medical unit. You just received a new 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 not to report the incident.

Scenario 3: Not hiring a qualified individual because of discrimination

Imagine you are a new human resources director in a nonprofit

organization and have been pressured not to 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?

Write a 150- to 350-word response for each ethical scenario. Include a

title page with your name and your responses.
