There is an unlimited amount of questions that can come from the wrongful convictions. The question posed should the state even compensate for those who were wrongfully convicted. The state did what they felt was best under the circumstances and evidence they had. The taxpayer dollars should not have to compensate for making decisions they were forced to make. The suggestions have been made to set the wrongfully convicted with a sort of house and perhaps a job but nothing in the realm of a payment of millions of dollars.
It is for the patient to prove that his doctor failed to act in a manner of a reasonably competent doctor which is based on skill, training and education. The courts would decide this based on the facts of the case. The test in determining the standard care of a professionals with special skills or knowledge was set out in Bolam v Friern Hospital Management Committee5, where McNair J relying on the Scottish case of Hunter v Hanley6, stated that, where a doctor is not guilty of negligence if he has acted in accordance with a practice that is accepted as proper by a responsible body of medical men skilled in that particular art. He went on to comment that, a doctor would not be negligent if he is acting in accordance with a practice accepted by a responsible body of medical
A breach of this duty gives a patient the right to initiate action against negligence. Persons who offer medical advice and treatment implicitly state and undertake to have the skill and knowledge to do as under: • To undertake particular job. • To decide whether to take a case or not , • To decide the treatment suitable for particular case • To administer that treatment.
Wrongful Convictions The criminal justice system exists for individuals to express their right to due process. However, even the criminal justice system has flaws. Wrongful convictions do occur and statistics show that as much as .5% - 1% of all convictions are wrongful. (Zalman, 2017) The past system, especially prior to DNA evidence testing, was harsh and very one-sided.
In this paper, it will be proven that equipoise, specifically clinical equipoise, is valid through the comparisons of the different types of equipoise and the focus on trust relationships. However, it will be made evident that clinical equipoise fails to acknowledge the patient’s autonomy because of the high focus on the medical research aspect. For research to be valid, it must consider beneficence. Brody and Miller believe that researchers must respect autonomy for the research to be ethical. This is because the patient does not receive any benefits from participating in the trial, which is known as therapeutic misconception (Miller and Brody, 2003, 100).
Furthermore, policymakers implemented administrative decisions in attempts to reduce the crimes and health risks associated with these drugs, but those decisions lead to negative consequences. Overall, the rhetoric behind the War on Terror and the War on Drugs in the United States greatly influences how the public views crimes as social problems by depicting and focusing on the stereotypes of crime and criminals. The rhetoric connected to both the War on Terror and the War on Drugs describe crimes that involve large public reactions. For example, the War on Terror emerged from terrorist acts; such as those acts committed on September 11, 2001 or during the Boston Marathon in 2013.
As a young girl, I simply thought that doctors just treated diseases. When one was sick they went to the doctor, the doctor diagnosed them and gave them a suitable treatment. However, as a first year medical student I now know that this is not the case. In modern society doctors don’t treat diseases- they treat the people who have the diseases. It’s not just medical students or people in the medical profession who know this- modern society as a whole has come to accept the fact that doctors are no longer medical scientists but carers who put their patients needs first and not the disease or illness they may have.
To improve on patients’ satisfaction, radiographers have to imbibe the right ethical attitude in their conduct while discharging duties. Augustine Obi Okar(2015) found that there is a need for improved ethical/professional conduct of radiographers and general service delivery in the radiology departments of the hospitals to enhance patient satisfaction. Ogbonnia Godfrey Ochonma et al (2016) suggested customer relations are sources of dissatisfaction. Providers of health care services and radiographers in particular need special orientation in customer relations to foster good patient satisfaction strategies. Whitney L. Jackson (2012) in his article revealed that James Lipcamon, out-patient imaging services manager for East Cooper Medical Center in Mt. Pleasant, SC, “patient satisfaction is a big deal for today’s radiologists, both in the hospital and private imaging center setting. For any patient coming into a hospital setting or an imaging center, they already expect our competency. That’s not what they’re mainly concerned about; they’re looking for the warm fuzzies,” he said.
Doctors need to listen to patient when they are telling what they feel are wrong with their health and bodies because the patient knows their body best. Many doctors think that patients do not have any knowledge about medicine and just ignore the important information from the patient and this is a really wrong thing to do because this can cause false diagnosis and medical errors. Simple thing such as when a patient enter the room, doctor should greet the patient with a welcoming tone then introduce himself/herself also make sure that him/her is pronouncing the patient’s name correctly should be done to show a basic respect. A doctor should treat every patient individually and also give every patient an undivided attention while listening to his or her problems to make the patients feel that the doctor really cares. A good doctor should be able to make the patient feel relaxed by treating them with patient and pay attention on small details such as avoid sitting too close or too far away from the patient.
It is basic that we start to pass enactment making capital punishment lawful all through the United States so justice can be served appropriately. The morality of the death penalty has been hotly discussed for a long time. Those opposed to the death penalty say that it is immoral for the government to take the life of a citizen under any circumstance. This contention is refuted by Immanuel Kant who set forth the idea that, a society that is not willing to request a life of some individual who has taken another person 's life is essentially immoral.
This ruling includes and is not limited to doctors. 3. Facts Washington State has a law on the books which states it is a crime to assist another person to attempt suicide. Dr Harold Glucksberg, a Washington physician, along with other Washington physicians brought suit against the State of Washington, alleging arguing Dr Glucksberg would frequently treat terminally-ill patients, and would have assisted those patients in ending their lives if not for the state’s ban on assisted suicide. Glucksberg brought suit in before
Financially they can receive astronomical civil monetary penalties as well as criminal penalties of up to 10 years in prison. The quality of the organization will be tarnished. Who will want to be affiliated with an organization that fails to protect their patient’s valuable information from getting into the wrong hands. In Conclusion, protecting members’ privacy and complying with the laws is very serious and could lead to severe punishment. It’s a common legal issue in todays healthcare system.
Similarly, specialty court recidivism research needs to do the same. This prompted the authors to measure specialty court’s influence on clients who did not complete the program. This data is and should be required to determine specialty court’s efficacy. This approach to measure unsuccessful clients is essential and should not be discarded. The authors measured other factors besides recidivism, time to recidivism, and drug use.
According to Lake Macquarie Member of Parliament Greg Piper, there is a possibility of unjust sentencing that originates from the introduction of new sentencing laws, he said: “This could be somebody who, just for want of being in the wrong place at the wrong time and just defending themselves or defending a friend, has been found technically guilty of this assault that’s caused death and gets an eight year minimum sentence. Or if it’s some other kind of injury, up to two years minimum sentence. Now I don’t believe that’s going to make that person a better member of our society, as a matter of fact I think it’s probably going to be very detrimental to our society.” The president of New South Wales Bar Association, Phillip Boulten, stated that unfair and unjustly harsh sentences were
