Book: George D. Pozgar (2016). Legal Aspects of Health Care Administration (13th ed.)

 

Medical professionals make ethical decisions every day but they also have laws that they need to follow.  Does a doctor follow a law or the patient\’s wishes when the two contradict each other?  That is a main ethical issue many medical personnel find themselves in.  This is especially true with life saving medical treatment.

Patient\’s also have specific rights when it not only comes to their medical treatment but the handling of their case and medical records.  Information in medical records is confidential and is not to be shared without the prior written consent of patients.  However, most the time we go to the doctor\’s we are signing that that medical facility can share information with the insurance carrier especially when it comes to the right to bill the insurance.  As we have seen through this week and the prior four weeks, there are so many issues and explanations that patients and medical personnel deal with on a daily basis.
