The final component to take into consideration when applying ethics is the how. The how is important for companies to come up with standard guidelines for making particular ethical decisions about the well-being of their stakeholders. Making good ethical decisions are essential to making the right choices. Therefore, Chris and the Novelty Now team should have had a standard practice to investigate all new chemicals, and involved all the relevant stakeholder in their decision to change the ingredient. This ethical behavior performed by Novelty Now, and Chris to cut corners, so they could increase profitability could have seriously injured Donald
Unlike the article, the VA recommends that intramuscular injections are for patients who cannot take medication orally, when I.V. administration is inappropriate, and for drugs that are altered by digestive juices. The VA, clearly outlines when to not give an intramuscular injection. It states in their policy that, injections should not be given at “inflamed, edematous, or irritated sites or at sites that contain moles, birthmarks, scar tissue, or other lesions” (Brandt, 2012). The journal article does not give clear advice on when not to give an injection intramuscular.
However, it is important that patients check that the pharmacy they use is registered and able to legally sell medications before purchasing online. Response of the Pharmaceutical Industry Counterfeit medications are also a significant problem for pharmaceutical industries that profit from the sale of genuine medications. It is in their interest, and in the interest of the public health, to reduce the rates of counterfeit medications and ensure that the public has access to medications that have been tested for safety and efficacy. As a result, pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors have been investing into certain measures to reduce the impact of counterfeit medications. This includes creating technologies to trace and authenticate medications as a way to reduce the impact and feasibility of counterfeit drugs.
“Democratic senators wrote a letter to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, grandfathering that the sale of these products would essentially undermine consumer protections.” (Supporter’s argument) The FDA’s strict regulations would reduce any risks of unsafe e-cigarettes. “There are likely hundreds of e-cigarette products on the market today without any regulatory review of their consequences for public health.” It is the government’s responsibility to protect consumers and ensure that products are safe to use. In conclusion, e-cigarettes have been promoted as a safer alternative to traditional cigarettes and proven to help tobacco users quit smoking. Unlike traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes do not produce harmful toxins that cause cancer. This new type of technology should be regulated by the Food and Drug Administration to ensure the product is safe for use during the manufacturing stages.
Gaining consent is essential in healthcare practice because it is a legal and ethical value (Welsh Assembly Government [WAG], 2015). Obtaining consent is an ethical requirement because it enables respect for the patient’s autonomy as it includes them in part of the decision-making process (McHale, 2013a). Valid consent must be gained before any action on the capable patient regarding treatment, personal care or investigation (Tidy, 2016). The National Health Service [NHS], 2016) outlines consent as permission given by the patient to the clinician before receiving any medical investigation irrespective of the technique type. Taylor (2013), agrees and adds that consent is a patient’s right to make informed choices regarding their care and treatment.
Both of these sets of guidelines will be invaluable when deciding upon the best course of action when confronted with an ethical dilemma and can be used in conjunction with relevant national laws. Because many countries lack official bodies relating to the conduct of hypnotherapists, standardisation across the profession of hypnotherapy may need to increase in the near future. This issue is especially important given that hypnotherapy treatments are becoming more and more common, for example, via the NHS (Beaven-Marks 2013). A set of universal guidelines that can be adopted by hypnotherapists worldwide would go a considerable way to improving patient safety and quality of care, and the public perception of hypnotherapy in
. STUDY OF ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS a. PEST Analysis: i. Political: L 'Oreal faced issues in the dermatology branch led by Galderma due to new legislations governing drugs. The EU law affects L 'Oreal and restricts their use of certain kinds of carcinogenic chemicals, such as Phthalates.

I will explore the ways in which the Nursing and Midwifery Council have begun implementing changes to its processes in order to better consider human factors during investigations and distance itself from the punitive perception the NMC has with its nursing and midwifery registrants. I have chosen to explore this topic as human factors are challenging for healthcare regulators, particularly regulators like the NMC whom are focussed on the practise of an individual rather than the concerns within the wider systems. I believe as professional regulators, human factors need to be taken into consideration when investigating allegations in order to achieve more reliable and robust investigations, and with hope to achieve fairer outcomes for nurses and
There is large investments being made in new technology to reduce production times and improve quality so that patients receive the best quality products in the swiftest manner. Patient care is at the heart of Janssen as clinical trials are on site to always try to gain more information on the potential products to improve. Janssen is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, so to look at the organisation structure it must fall under J&J’s structure first. J&J’s organisation can be split into three main factions; Consumer healthcare, medical devices and pharmaceuticals. Consumer healthcare is concerned with J&J’s baby care, skin care, oral care and woman’s health care products.
Managers in the health information department are in a prime spot to guide their peers to a greater level of compliance and therefore, a lesser risk of legal consquences. Per the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA): Health information management (HIM) is the practice of acquiring, analyzing, and protecting digital and traditional medical information vital to providing quality patient care. It is a combination of business, science, and information technology. (AHIMA, 2018) HIM professionals, therefore, can use many tools, such as auditing, to discover areas where compliance is lacking and in turn use targeted education to help prevent any
I would explain to him that all containers and pipes must have a legible label on them written in English. The label will be cross-referenced with the Material Safety Data Sheet and will have a keyword on the label for the employees to easily recognize and find the chemical in the MSDS. I would also instruct him or her to evaluate the employee 's knowledge on what hazards the chemicals pose and for the employee to prove that he or she knows how to look up the chemical by looking at the label and finding the chemical in the MSDS(David
They should be hold accountable for any breach in protocols. • Present format for electronic documentation does not allow for comprehensive clinical documentation during follow-up visit. Efforts should be made to upgrade the electronic medical record system to the standard of that expected for a medical center and research institute. This is to allow for proper documentation according to the industrial standard, and easy retrieval of patient’s information for clinical research. There is a need to employ a clinical documentation improvement specialist (CDIS) in this
One of the well-known federal fraud and abuse statutes in the United States is the federal Anti-Kickback Statute, which greatly influences business relationships in the pharmaceutical, healthcare and medical device sectors. This statute is an Anti-Corruption law, which is designed to protect beneficiaries of the federal health care program from money influence on various referral decisions. Thus, this law helps in guarding against an increase in costs, overutilization and poor quality services. However, this law needs some modifications to become more efficient to all the U.S citizens. The lawmakers in the country should take the initiative of amending this bill so as to ensure that they adequately represent the interests of those people who
Legislation is defined as law which has been produced by regulatory bodies implementing a function of requirements, restrictions and conditions, setting standards in relation to any activity and securing compliance or enforcement. The regulators responsibility is to protect the service providers and its users. Compliance is either a state of being in accordance with established guidelines, specifications or legislation or the process of becoming so. One regulatory body, The NHS Litigation Authority (NHSLA) manages negligence and other claims against service providers in England. The NHSLA also helps to resolve disputes fairly, share learning about risks and standards in the NHS and help to improve safety for patients and staff.
