The plaintiffs also claimed the hospital failed to require its staff to follow well-recognized and established administrative regulations and hospital procedures. The plaintiff did not object to the omission of vicarious liability. Because the theory of hospital negligence submitted to the jury was subordinate, they must determine whether the record contained evidence from which a jury could conclude that the hospital itself went away from the standard care of practice. The defendant’s remaining arguments were as follows: they claim that two pieces of evidence were containing admissions by Carol Armstrong and that she had consented to the exams, and that the consent was very wrongfully
After speaking with Jackie this morning she told me that the Health Services Department won 't take any credits because it is an AS degree versus an AA degree and that if I wanted to look towards an AA degree an exception could potentially be made in transferring the ACE credits in. Now I am even more confused because I would attribute the college, transferring these courses because they feel they are comparable to the courses Santa Fe has to offer, however, they won 't transfer in for a degree in Science??? The courses are the same I would take at Santa Fe regardless if I was going towards an AS degree or an AA degree. Anatomy & Physiology I with Lab, Anatomy and Physiology II with Lab, Microbiology with Lab, and Nutrition. Can you see my confusion?
One you might not think of as being fraud is under-coding. This is often done to avoid investigation by the OCG. Over coding and under coding depending on where the “idea” originates to do this can be akin to falsifying the medical record. So never ever allow a coworker or a provider to talk you into doing this even once. References All Things Medical Billing.
What do you think are the overall benefits of utilizing these analysis tools within a health care organization? No I don’t believe that contribution margins will help manage my position, the reason why I say no because I do medical billing and my department will never see what revenue or expenses my company might have. Do you think you would use break-even analysis? No, because my department does not handle break-even analysis, however, what I do know is the break-even point result in profits whereas revenues, the break-even point results in losses. Many companies can do a break-even
Little did you know that you would have knee complications for the rest of your life and that the VA; the department who is supposed to be there supporting you, will not pay for therapy or surgery. In the article “Alternate PTSD Therapy for Vets Ruffles VA Feathers, but Shows Results” by Mark Brunswick, The Minneapolas VA said “We have not developed this service, and have instead focused our efforts on providing the highest quality services in PE (prolonged exposure) and CPT (cognitive processing therapy)”. Should the VA be concerned with highest quality or the most effective
It would be my ethical duty to explain to the rehabilitation manager that as an OTA, I am not qualified to perform evaluations. I would say that it was against AOTA regulations and probably would make the insurance company very displeased. OTAs are only trained to assist the OTs during evaluations and cannot determine goals or develop a plan of action. It is just after the OT has made a plan is when I could help with therapy. So the client would have to wait until a more qualified person was on staff before we could proceed further.
It is completely unethical to bill a patient to whom which you have never lied eyes on. After speaking with multiple people in the billing department and above, including the CMO, within the Valleycare system all agreeing that in fact you CAN NOT bill a patient you have never seen, my next call will be the state medical board.
The Terri Schiavo case was a huge start of the “Right to Die” movement, the underlying cause of Schiavo’s collapse was never given a diagnosis. Consequentialist moral theories focus on how much good can result from an action. Non Consequentialist moral theories or Deontological theories, consider not the consequences of an action but whether they fulfill a duty. Some theories that can be used include utilitarianism, Kant’s ethics and natural law theory. Being aware of the case already, I believe there should be some sort of law that gives doctors to comply with the wishes of the patient if they are in a lot of distress.
On the contrary Trump has stated during a previous interview with a radio host that "abortion aspect of Planned Parenthood should not -- absolutely should not -- be funded." Mr.Trump finds it disturbing knowing that Planned Parenthood tends to sell baby body parts after they are aborted to the highest bidder. His opinion on this situation is that they shouldn 't fund in any way. If they fund, it should be for the positivity they give, not for the dreadful
The only line that I didn’t agree with was “The Actuary shall not refuse to consult or cooperate with the prospective new or additional actuary based upon unresolved compensation issues” (American Academy of Actuaries, 2000). This was in context of having to work for a firm or company that hired you as an individual actuary. So it states that once you begin work that, unless you have a contract with them, you cannot stop working or refuse to work for them based on the fact that they will not pay you. To me it seems logical that if they refuse to pay you, than you should not have to work for them. With that being said, I will have to make sure that I have a contract with a clause regarding that before I do any work as a consulting
