Assignment 1: Legal Aspects of U.S. Health Care System AdministrationDue Week 4 and worth 100 points
Prevailing wisdom reinforces the fact that working in U.S. health care administration in the 21st Century requires knowledge of the various aspects of health laws as they apply to dealing with medical professionals. Further because U.S. health care administrators have to potentially interact with many levels of professionals beyond the medical profession it is prudent that they are aware of any federal state and local laws that may be applicable to their organizations. Thus their conduct is also subject to the letter of the law. They must evaluate the quality of their professional interactions and be mindful of the implications and ramifications of their decisions.
You are employed as a top health administrator at the hypothetical Well Care Hospital in Happy Town. When you were hired your pre-employment screening involved background checks into any violation of hospital medical misconduct during the last five (5) years. The results showed that you were in good standing with the hospital administration community. During the past year you had to undergo training in personnel conduct as well as in inter-employee conduct with medical staff nurses technologists etc. During the past six (6) months the hospital has been under scrutiny for breach of medical compliance.
