Mac Arthur had an excellent strategy; however, he failed to conduct an analysis to support his results that should include a projection revenue growth for the shareholders. One of the adaptive challenges, was Mitch Rabkin, from BI, BI chiefs and leadership team led and were given positions of authority after the merger. As a result, this the Deaconess chiefs internalized the change, and found it difficult to adjust to the adaptive change. Unfortunately, they felt distrust, hostility in work environment, and the skilled physicians resigned. The merger did include another essential technical element which is a scope of both companied organizational charts.
After the doctors told Charlie that they were going to use him he got so exited. The doctors also did not know about the side effects and did not know until after what happened to Algernon. Those are some reason people may believe why his doctors were being ethical about the surgery. Overall, Charlies doctors did not act ethically while performing the surgery. Being ethical would be knowing about the situation, knowing the question to ask yourself, medical questions, and backgrounds/experience 's.
Doctor Douglas, understood that the treatment that both Brodus and Nurse Evers envisioned for their patients was impractical, given funding and resources. Douglas mentions, “A study could be created and carried out...And it would be the most important study of its kind ever conducted” (40), a statement that is important given that it demonstrates Douglas’s focus on the greater good. Douglas in describing the study reveals he has given less importance to the patients in the study, suggesting that their sacrifice will assist the general population. This in addition to acknowledging the idea that the Tuskegee Study would allow for resources to continue treatment for the patients, is intended to coax Brodus and Nurse Evers in participating in the study. Feldshuh includes Douglas’s description towards the importance of the study to signify the ease of justifying a cause; however it is intentional that Doctor Douglas does not reveal the true purpose of the study to the patients.
The doctors hadn't even been thought the Algernon's test before they started on Charlie they weren't thinking about Charlie because they were thinking about themselves. The doctors only cared about how much fame they would get from this experiment. They only cared about what they would get from the experiment, It didn’t matter what happened to Charlie. Charlie Gordon's doctors also didn’t think of what would happen to his after the surgery, Charlie ended up losing his job because people found it wrong for Charlie to end up learning all this information so quickly. He also
Flowers for Algernon Argumentative essay Intelligence is a valued aspect to many people, but it can be achieved in options that aren’t labeled “intelligence-altering surgery”. The doctors, Dr.Nemur and Dr. Strauss do not follow the ethics of fieldwork. They chose the wrong person, Charlie Gordon, to do the surgery on, and didn’t wait to find out that the side-effects include death. In Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes, the doctors made a bad choice by choosing Charlie Gordon for the intelligence-altering surgery. The first and least important reason is that Dr.Nemur and Dr.Strauss did not follow the ethics of fieldwork.
Dr. Schaller, a key player mentioned in this case, is closest to the deontological perspective. Not all of his views or actions align with this perspective, but his earlier views come the closest. “Right from the start, Schaller was uncomfortable about AHCCCS funding of transplants for several reasons. For one, he questioned whether a program with tight resources should be spending its money on high dollar, high risk procedures. After all, AHCCCS was intended as a general health program for the genuinely poor…[Schaller stated that the] AHCCS should provide ‘basic health care to poor people, not just cater to people who have real expensive health problems.” (Varley 1988, 318-319).
Another problem was that CareGroup had weak foundation for a powerful system; when the system linked all the hospitals together, the network was not designed to handle large amounts of data, causing the system to crash. In addition, CareGroup, in an effort to reduce costs, reduced the budget for IT and relied on a small, in-house IT team to consolidate the three networks into a single system. Consequently, there was only one expert responsible for the whole software application and the other staff didn’t know about
The text states,” But even Dr. Exner, the developer of the comprehensive system, agreed that the test "can be abused unwittingly by the ill-trained person," and he said he was uncomfortable with the use of the test in "adversarial" settings, like custody disputes.” The accuracy of these tests can definitely vary with the experience and training of the doctor who is distributing it, so only a few professionals have mastered being able to score the test properly. This clearly shows that the validity of these tests is questionable at best. Supporters of the Rorschach test say that the test is valid because it can delve into the mind of patient without requiring the patient to give up information they are not comfortable exposing. While this argument has some merit, the patient still has the ability to cheat the test by simply responding with the answers that make them look more mentally stable. It is clearly seen that the Rorschach test should not be used to diagnose mental illnesses.
Charlie did not even benefit that well from being a test subject in the experiment. Similarly, the treatment of Charlie was not very ethical because he was not treated specially for his mental state of disability. Lastly, this surgery did not provide enough benefits to even dent the weight of his unethical death. In the story Charlie was used because of his inferior intelligence and not treated well enough as he should have which led to his wrongful death. This story was fictional, but the use and abuse of human test subjects is
In my opinion, the strategy was unbiased and very unbalanced. The strategic plan revolved around the OR department, yet there is various department around the facility that contribute in comparison with the larger hospitals in the surrounding areas, LCH would not be able to compete with them. This is because the strategy had a focal point of obtaining competent physicians and nursing staff, to increase OR volumes. However, with the future trends of patient-centric care, marketing departments should’ve had the responsibility of selling out the services of the hospital to patients in the surrounding area. Thus, I would have challenged the strategic plan, as it was an ineffective solution to the financial burdens the hospital was facing.
Conducting surgery on someone who is not mentally able to make sound decisions can be considered medical negligence. Although Charlie 's doctors were not ethical, some people believe the doctors ' actions were ethical. The doctors did not hurt Charlie, nor did they lie to him. All the doctors did was not tell him the outcome of they procedure, but they did that in order to spare him. In summary, Charlie Gordon 's doctors were not ethical because they did not follow the Hippocratic Oath or ask themselves the necessary ethical questions doctors must ask themselves.
Among multiple issues including giving misleading information, the most dominate is the lack of consent Milgram received from his subjects to participate in such a test (102). While I do see that this is immoral, there is no way that Milgram could have completed his experiments effectively if he had done it morally. The first issue is if he explains what is actually going to happen during the experiments, that would obviously hurt the integrity of his results. Also, going back to how the experiments help us, if those who participated knew what was going to happen, it wouldn’t have affected them as severely. It was the shock that the experiment gave that brought their life choices into question.
Health care providers should not use heroic measures to prolong the lives of Alzheimer’s patients because the disease is incurable. Several medical interventions have benefited the patients very little and are prolonging their suffering. Although heroic measures could save people from death, the patients’ suffering with Alzheimer’s still continues. Heroic measures might help in the meantime, but cannot change the patient 's fate with this incurable disease. Alzheimer’s disease slowly drains the quality of life of the patient.
A six-month examination by The Times found that the rescuers ' ability to save themselves and others was hobbled by technical difficulties, a history of tribal feuding and management lapses that have been part of the emergency response culture in New York City and other regions for years. The other flaws in their plan were lapses in leadership and coordination and a lack of proper planning and training and lack of emergency resources (ambulances). Due to lack of coordination, the Fire Department could not account for the number of fighters that were sent into the towers, and where they died. The Emergency Medical Service said they only had ambulances for 400 calls while the chief of the Port Authority police said the region 's bridges, tunnels, and ports were drained of
In her writing, Skloot provides the details of the lack of cell ethics present in early cell research and makes evident the lack of growth in that part of the field. Though there have since become guidelines, for much of the first half century of cell research all projects were riddled with a lack of ethical treatment of the patients and the exploitation of them and their cells. Despite the gripes of the patients, especially those whom are mentioned by Skloot, they are largely ignored in favor of the money making giant that is the cell growing
