This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

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 caseexamples 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);2. The setting; and3. The health care organization’s responsibility.Peer comments should compare and contrast the impact of the patient rights on each setting. Read the background articles but this discussion will take research beyond the above articles. Provide citation of authority to support your initial response to conference questions. Peers are expected to demonstrate critical thinking in their questions related to the classmates’ descriptions. Initial response to discussion topic must be no later than 11:59pm EST Thursday
