I’m working on a health & medical discussion question and need support to help me understand better.
This week, you learned that employees have a multitude of rights and responsibilities, much like a patient. Employees have to feel safe in their environment in order to provide the best possible care to patients. Thus, federal, state, and local laws provide rules for the treatment of employees as well as the expectations of employees.
For this discussion prompt, use the St. Martha’s General Hospital Scenario. After reviewing a scenario and reading about employee rights and responsibilities, discuss an employee right or responsibility that may have been violated at St. Martha’s General Hospital. Then, analyze the facts of the hypothetical situation against the right or responsibility to explain how there was a violation. ( 200-300 world)
Scenario:The scenario from “St. Martha’s General Hospital” that I want to discuss is “The Slackers.” In this scenario, two nurses Tom and Bobby were being negligent towards their patients. Instead of helping their patients, they were spending their work hours in the break room playing games and at times, drinking alcohol. They would also have the nursing assistants log in on their behalf to show as if they were the ones that were working, when in reality, the assistants were doing all of the work. Lastly, Tom and Bobby would make fun of their patients, saying crude jokes and laughing at them.
