THIS IS A DISCUSSION QUESTION
- Suppose you work in a hospital that just received twelve patients from a disaster event in your community. Your hospital is able to treat and provide necessary surgical services to those that require surgery. However, five patients are refusing care and requesting to be transferred to another hospital for the same services. Suggest the course of action that the hospital should take to meet the standards of the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) related to public health in your community. Provide at least two (2) specific examples to support your rationale.
- Imagine that an unidentified individual with a gunshot wound has been transported to the emergency room. After taking the victim into surgery, the medical team realizes the individual is a minor. Examine the kind of consent that the team should obtain, and determine the resources that they could utilize in order to obtain this consent.
Class according to the grading rubric and the Strayer Writing Standards, you have to support your work. If you are not including citations or references, then you are committing academic dishonesty and this is grounds for possible plagiarism. I have explained this in the threads, in the orientation video, in the weekly overview videos, and still people are posting without supporting their work. So please know that this is a serious issue and I would highly recommend to complete the work based on the requirements or risk zero points and referral to The Academic Integrity Office.
Next: Please ensure you are using credible research. You cannot use .com, investopedia.com is the same as wikipedia, and you cannot use them. You will lost points, if this continues and and may risk getting zero points on your discussions. Thanks for your understanding
