BUSINESS ETHICS ASSIGNMENT INTRODUCTION Child labor by numbers. 211 million children worldwide are child laborers. 73 million working children are less than 10 years old. 126 million are estimated to work in the worst forms of child labor one in every 12 of the world's five to 17 year’s olds. 8.4 million Children are trapped in slavery, trafficking, debt bondage and other forms of forced labor, forced recruitment for armed conflict, prostitution, pornography and other illicit activities.
About 420,000 childhood cancer survivors live in the U.S., with much more around the world (St. Jude Children 's Research Hospital) this shows that cancer is one major diagnosed disease found in children under the age of 15. Cancer patients will have long-lasting chronic conditions during treatment. Plus 0.35% of children get cancer and is always being overlooked. Childhood cancer research is vastly and consistently underfunded. Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15 in the U.S.One in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 20 years old.Every year, an estimated 250,000+ new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 worldwide.Two-thirds of
Also, it takes away from family time because they will always be playing their sport. Youth sports cause many injuries in children. “Over 448,000 football-related injuries to youths under 15 are treated in hospitals, doctors’ offices, clinics, ambulatory surgery centers and emergency rooms annually” (Inetwork, 2017). This number is way too high. Every year, more than 3.5 million children under the age 14 need treatment for sports injuries, with nearly half of all sports injuries for middle and high school students caused by overuse(Inetwork, 2017).
Problems in our justice system Although many believe that all criminals belong in jail there are a number of kids that are tried as a adult. Basically they get sent sent to a jail with adults. Research shows that children that are incarracted develop mental illness and suicidal thoughts. Children aren't the only ones who have this issue, adults have it also. The justice system has completely failed us.
Child Labor Child labor is one of the most significant issues in numerous developing nations. According to the International Labor Organization estimates, there are 351.7 million economically active children on the planet 210.8 million aged 5–14, and 140.9 million aged 15–17 years. About 170 million of these children are included in dangerous work 111 million aged 5–14; 59 million aged 15–17 (Tiwari & Saha 2014). child labor refers to the employment of children in any work that deprives children of their childhood, interferes with their capacity to go to school, and that is socially, mentally, physically or ethically harmful and dangerous. child labor support and its results have dependably been a great interest for financial aspects.
From time to time, social work practitioners face different challenges and one of such example is being confronted with ethical dilemmas. An ethical dilemma is defined as “when the social worker sees himself or herself as facing a choice between two equally unwelcoming alternatives, which may involve a conflict of moral values, and it is not clear which choice will be the right one” (Banks, 2012). Ethical dilemmas can occur in the context of either client or organisational-related conflict situations at work. The first ethical dilemma is when the patient refuses medical treatment and services because he or she would not accept that there is any problem. The dilemma lies in how the social work practitioner would respect the patient’s autonomy
One ethical obligation nurses are required to fulfil during their shift is to ensure no harm is done to their patient. Due to nursing shortages and too many patient’s, nurses are finding this hard to do. Ethics help nurses make the right decisions with the guidance of their morals, but due to shortages and overworked nurses they tend to feel dissatisfied with their jobs. This results from unsafe work environments, lack of time for communication and quality care of patients. “Understaffing and overtime hours have been associated with increases in patient mortality, hospital-acquired infections, shock, and bloodstream infections” (Kane et al., 2007b).
The common fatalities were from head injuries, abdominal injuries and intentional suffocation. The world health organization (2002) also states that deaths are just the tip of the problem here because millions of children fall victim of non-fatal abuse and neglect every single day. Many being subject to psychological/emotional abuse as well as neglect, but the true extent of the abuse is not known. The World Health Organization (2002), drafted the definition of child abuse or maltreatment as being “the constitute of all forms of physical and/or emotional ill-treatment, sexual abuse, neglect or negligent treatment or commercial or other exploitation, resulting in actual or potential harm to the child’s health, survival, development or dignity in the context of relationship of responsibility, trust or power.” The above definition mention four types of abuse; which are namely the physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse and neglect. Dworkin (2011) states Physical abuse of a child as “those acts of commission by a caregiver that cause actual
The different levels of stress in doctors and nurses need to be minimized to initiate better performance. Increased stress level affects the relationship and coordination of work. Struggles are most common indications to such conditions and the treatment of patient is affected (Nakakis Konstantinos, 2013). Disobeying and unconditional patient’s demand is also another reason for rising conflict and therefore I have chosen this topic with an aim to discuss different level of stress and their reasons. The best choice is to use quantitative method to analyze stress between doctor and nurse in
These nurses experience illnesses themselves and guidelines and precautions are not takes. Nurses should be aided and helped because they are getting taken advantage of and this causes negative effects to be brought upon these nurses. And since nurses are being taken advantage of this causes them to deteriorate at a rate unimaginable, to a point in which posts and positions are cleared
