Week 2 HMGT 372 Patients have a bill of rights. Patients also consent to care and have a right to self-determine their care. Those who care for patients are to keep information protected. Select one of the patient rights (ethical or legal issues) from readings this week. Discuss with your colleagues the right, the legal and/or ethical basis for this right and how this translates into responsibility for a specific health service organization setting. Provide two specific real life case examples that you find on the internet or in the print media. Examples: assisted living facilities for disabled, long term care facility, a home care nursing association, a small physician practice, a hospital, a rehabilitation center, or a first responder/ambulance. Remember: 1. The patient right (with proper legal citation); Guarantee You a Right to Appeal- S.1012(109 th ): Patients’ Bill of Rights Act of 2005 Title 1-Improving Managed Care Sec. 103. Internal appeals of claims denials Sec.104. Independent external appeals procedures The patient bill of right to a fair, fast, and objective review of any compliant against their health plan, doctors, hospitals, or other health care personnel was discussed with managed care colleagues. This right includes complaints about waiting time, operating hours, the actions of health care personnel, and adequacy of health care facilities (healthsourceglobal.com). The ethical basis for this right is a health care provider and or a health service organization ethically should hold standards or professionalism and provide the upmost quality of care. Ethically if an organization/coverage makes a decision regarding your care and you are not satisfied with the decision, ethically you have the right to challenge and ask the health organization to review and change the decision. Legal Case: Boyd vs. Albert Einstein Medical Center HMO 1988- Denial of Hospital Admission Mrs. Boyd discovered a lump in her breast, sought consultation from her physician. The physician ordered a biopsy in which she was punctured and obtained a hemothorax. She was hospitalized and later discharged to recover at home.
