Substantive Rules
Rules of truth-telling, confidentiality, privacy, and various rules about forgoing treatment, physician-assisted suicide, informed consent, and the rationing of health care provide more specific guides to action than do abstract principles. Consider a simple example of a rule that sharpens the requirements of the principle of respect for autonomy for certain contexts: “Follow a patient’s advance directive whenever it is clear and relevant. “To indicate how this rule specifies the principles of respect for autonomy, we may state it more fully as: “Respect the autonomy of patients by following all clear and relevant formulations in their advance directives. “This formulation show how the initial norm remains but becomes specified.

Example situation, * In clinical situations nurses respect a patient’s autonomy, where the patient is allowed the freedom of choice regarding treatment, such as in deciding whether he/she wishes to be incubated during an exacerbation of COPD, or deciding when he/she wishes to forgo further dialysis. If a patient lacks capacity for such a decision and has an advance directive, the person who has the durable power of attorney can make the decision.

Authority Rules
That is, rules regarding who may and should perform actions. For example, rules of surrogate authority determine who should serve as surrogate agents in making decisions for incompetent persons, and rules of profesional authority determine who, if anyone, should make decision to override or to accept a patient’s decisions if those decisions are medically damaging and poorly considered. Another example appears in rules of distributional authority that determine who should make decisions about allocating scarce medical resources.
Authority rules do not delineate substantive or criteria for…...

To Work or Not to Work

...To work or not to work – That is the question: Whether ‘Tis politer in the mind to tolerate the insults And listen to the complaints of annoying customers, Or to resign from my job entirely And by quitting, rest or study for school. To work, to quit— No more—and by showing up to work I face The same old same old preparations for customers That each day holds.—‘Tis a situation I do not wish to face. To work, to quit— To quit, perhaps to rest. Ay, there’s the problem, For in quitting what events may come about When we have no money to have fun Must make us all think. That’s the thought That makes disaster of an invite to a Girls Night Out. For who really wants to work a long 8 hour shift, Deal with the annoyance of refolding clothes, the crabby managers, The disappointment of an empty break room, the cheapness of supplies, The overly dramatic co-worker, and the grimacing looks That the customers send my way when looking at their totals, When they too, may work And go through the same things I have to? Who would want this, To walk in the same exact steps every day, But the dread of being broke, The thought of spending weekends alone or The realization of the fact that we don’t have a life, Wishing that we did have some sort of job for cash Instead of seeking those wasted days of being lazy? Thus the chance of missing out on a fun night does make us want to work, And thus happiness of being with friends Is tainted by thoughts of how I cannot afford...

...because philosophers are notorious for talking in circles and phrasing things in a much more complex way then what is required. But I now understand why they do this; to get people like me to think about what they are writing and not just blindly read the words as they are printed. If I have to go back and read the paragraph once, twice, or more, it forces me to really understand what the author is saying and really analyze why they are saying these things. This semester I have learned many things in this course that I can now take with me into all of my future endeavors. We have discussed and challenged some great thinkers this semester and I have taken much away from that. The first thing we learned this semester, while studying the works of Aristotle, was that there are three ways to understand happiness. These ways are pleasure (including wealth), fame, and being wise. Once that happiness has been achieved, you have reached the ultimate goal or ultimate end. To take that happiness from what Aristotle considers and opinion to an actual mental state, that happiness must contain three characteristics. Being self-sufficient is the first one. This means it must be able to “stand alone”, so to speak. Once this state is reached it should not require anything else to maintain it. The second characteristic is that the happiness must be complete. This goes along with the first characteristic of being self-sufficient because once this state is reached, there should be nothing......

...competitive market. Competition causes businesses to try new ways to attract customers, by lowering prices, improving quality, and developing new products and services. Think of it like football, or any other competitive team sport. The more teams there are, the harder and smarter all teams have to work to play the best game and please the audience at the same time. Competition encourages change and thereby helps to keep business exciting. The market is constantly changing (just like the game); entrepreneurs are constantly taking risks (like the players). However, just like a referee enters the game to enforce rules and regulations, the federal government has its own regulatory agencies to keep business practices in check. Unfortunately, government regulations, or anything that keeps entrepreneurs from entering the market, will make it less competitive. Unfortunately, less competition inevitably leads to higher prices, poorer quality, and fewer new products and services. ( The Church is one of the biggest market place, Yes, the business of the church is saving souls, but it is nevertheless a business: a closely held conglomerate with a work force of more than a million, 1.2 billion more-or-less regular customers, 10 times as many outlets as Starbucks, more real estate than Donald Trump dreams of, and lobbying clout to rival that of any secular industry. Now it’s C.E.O., physically and mentally depleted at age 85, is stepping......

...assault, threatening or coercive behavior that causes physical or emotional harm in a work setting (Rai, 2002). Aggression at workplace can also be to show or as a result of dissatisfaction and disapproval to other’s action. Violence is defined by the World Health Organization as the intentional use of physical force or power, threatened or actual, against a person, or against a group or community that either results in or has a high likelihood of resulting in injury, death, psychological harm, mal-development or deprivation. Workplace violence is an action or incident that physically or psychologically harms another person. It includes situations where employees and other people are threatened, attacked or physically assaulted at work (Department of Health, 2004). It ranges from threats and verbal abuse to physical assaults and even homicide. It can affect and involve employees, clients, customers and visitors. Violence is aggression; however aggression does not necessarily imply violence. When people talk about workplace violence they may be referring to a range of hostile acts – from threats and intimidation to homicide.. Workplace aggression includes violent acts as well as nonviolent acts such as harassment, intimidation, and threats that create a hostile work environment. Aggression can occur at the organizational level and a person might act aggressively based on factors of changes in the work environment, job changes, or injustice. If a person feels that they are......

Etics: Probity in Public Life

...public officials both elected and appointed give sterling and dedicated service to the country. They keep alive and constantly seek to enrich the best traditions of selfless public service. These officials need to be encouraged and their contributions recognised. The best way to give such encouragement and recognition is to call to account those who will not play by the rules. Rooting out corruption is not an easy task. It will not happen in one big swoop nor will it happen by legislation alone. It needs a national objective in which all the citizens, agencies and institutions must play their part. This means that Government, political parties, the private sector, civil society, religious leaders and, most importantly, the media need to work together to ensure that nothing but the highest standard of behaviour, accountability and transparency are tolerated in governance across all aspects of society. There needs to be something like a national crusade dedicated to the maintenance of a culture of decency and integrity in public life. In India Ethics and Morality is inseparable since ancient times. This ethical and moral legacy was inherited by our national leaders during freedom struggle; they demonstrated a high degree of probity and honesty in public life. Mahatma Gandhi not only preached morality in public life but also practiced it. He believed that politics without morality is a thing to be avoided. However, in recent years there is a general feeling that all is not......

E-mail: To Work Or Not To Work Page 1 TO WORK OR NOT TO WORK: THE IMPACT OF WORK ON STUDENTS’ COLLEGE EXPERIENCE ABSTRACT Existing research on student employment focuses on the impact of work on persistence and degree attainment. This study, however, pays special attention to how work affects students' college experience. Blending quantitative and qualitative methods, the study examines the difference between working and nonworking students in their academic and social experience on campus, students’ perceptions of work, and the impact of work on their college life. The results indicate no significant difference between working and nonworking students in their academic and social experience, though working students' GPAs are lower than that of the nonworking. Constantly searching for meaningful work as well as meaning in their work, most working......

...Anyone looking to work in the restaurant business shouldn’t be expecting to just walk in and know exactly what they are doing. I run food, which sounds easy at first, but after awhile it becomes an extreme pain in the butt. Something as simple as giving food to a customer can become utterly annoying. I learned many things through working in restaurant. “It’s dog eat dog world”. This sentence reminds me how hard to keep restaurant business. One of the biggest misconception about the restaurant business is that people seem to think it’s easy -going. I can say one thing for sure, a popular restaurant will never be an easy-going restaurant, but working at a popular restaurant is the only way to make any sort of money. making money in a restaurant can often become competitive. For the servers and food runners, it’s all about making money, so it is inevitable that some workers are going to butt heads. Sometimes, I find myself hustling over to a table of people before another one of my workers can get there, it’s almost laughable but that’s just the way it works. Some might even go as far to say that the business is “dog eat dog” amongst the workers. It really is simple, whoever waits on the most tables is going to make the most money. Don’t get me wrong though, a server could wait on the most tables all night, but if their service isn’t good the amount of money they makes will be minimized....

Emic vs. Etic Essay

...February 8, 2014 ANTH 154 Emic VS. Etic Essay Emic: The research strategy that focuses on local explanations and criteria of significance. Etic: The research strategy that emphasizes the ethnographer’s rather than the local’s explanation, categories, and criteria of significance. My first example is Celebratory Food. The Emic view in this example is that food is the center piece of almost all celebratory get togehters. No matter where you live, when there is a celebration, like holidays, birthdays, rites of passage, etc., they will most likely be serving food. The Etic view in this example is that I am from the South, and we celebrate with different types of food then the North or the West or even another country would. When we have an occasion worth celebrating and cooking, we make Chicken, cornbread, oysters, greens, salad and sweet tea! In other portions of the world though, their celebrations may include, sushi, tamales, kobayashi beef, or….DOG! My second example is Raising Children. The Emic view in this example is that children are born and either one or two parents raise them. This happens in every culture all over the world, how different cultures raise these children brings me to the Etic view of this example. Being born and raised in South Carolina, some of the first few words that come out of our mouths are Mr. or Mrs. We are raised to be southern ladies and gentlemen. On the other hand we are encouraged to hunt, climb trees, and play in the mud as well. I......

...The Organization of Work The Nature and Organization of Work With the onset of the Industrial Revolution and the emergence of the practice of the division of labor and the emphasis on specialization, factories and company-owned industries had to employ hundreds and thousands of workers whom the owner or the manager does not know personally. The relationship between the entrepreneur (capital) and the workers (labor) is remote and impersonal, so lacking the “human touch”. Sociologist are intensely interested in the study of the interactive and interrelation between the employer and the employee and between an employee as he relates with other employees. Since, the worker is not a mere ”machine” but a human being, he has to satisfy his social needs. Workers do not confine their lives only to their place of work. They have families. And as communities were formed, large industries eventually surfaced. Status, roles and social mobility, as well as social organizations and social interrelationships, are important aspects of community life. This community situation, both inside and outside the factory, has given rise to an important development in sociology which many refer to as Industrial Sociology (Espiritu, 1979). This is also known as the organization of work. It is associated with organizational problems such as workers’ morale, productivity, absenteeism, and turn-over rates. However, its main concern is not how management can solve organizational problems. As discipline,......

...M1- Explain the value of three different resources in the preparation of the complex piece of work. D1- Evaluate the three resources in terms of validity. In this assignment I am going to be talking about a complex piece of work that I have already done for an assignment, and I will be explaining the value of 3 different resources and evaluating the 3 sources in terms of validity. The 3 resources that I am going to be talking about are: the internet, a text book, and NHS facts. I found all of these resources useful in different ways, and also reliable in different ways. I chose these particular resources because I have many opinions about them, some good, some bad. The mix of opinions is good because I can discuss both sides, and have a good balance between the opinions. The internet The source that I will be talking about first is the internet. The use of the internet helped me a lot with the assignment, this is because I was easily able to just search up what I needed to and then was able to put it into my own words and add it into my piece of work. I think that it also made my work better because I knew that the websites I was using were reliable and all the information in them was correct. And I think that this made my work good because I knew the information was correct and knew that I didn’t put anything in that was incorrect. Another way that it helped to support my work was that it was quick and easy, it gave me the answers straight away, and I didn’t have to......

Etics of Myself

...organisms cannot survive (Colson, 1999). In addition, the fossil record is incomplete, showing no signs of transitional life forms. This is a fact that even Darwin himself pointed out (Intelligent Design and Evolution Awareness Club, 2001). The second tenet of my worldview is that God is a personal, loving, all-knowing, allpowerful God. I grew up hearing Bible stories that taught me about a personal, loving, allknowing, all-powerful God. Over the past 18 months due to a variety of circumstances and experiences, I found this to be ever so much more true of God. He is always faithful, loving and guiding us down the paths that we take. And even more, nothing is impossible for God; He can take any situation, no matter how desperate it seems and work things out for good (Romans 8:28. The third major tenet of my worldview is that at the time of death, our spirits live on in one of two places: heaven or hell. Christ is needed for an eternity in heaven: “A man may go to heaven without health, without riches, without honors, without learning, without friends, but he can never go there without Christ” (Hughey and Hughey, 1994, p. 166). This statement is not just a creative quip; it is based on Biblical truth. The Bible tells us that the penalty for sin is death and separation from God. Paul taught about this in Romans. He said, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus” (Romans......

Etics Paper

...Administrative Ethics Paper Gwendolyn Matthews HCS/335 December19, 2011 Mr. Carmon Administrative Ethics Paper Privacy and confidentiality are important elements in the work of healthcare professionals. Ethical and legal issues may arise if providers fail to properly handle the protected health information of patients. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 established guidelines for maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of patient data. The guidelines include the procedures that should be followed for the disposal of protected health information. This paper will be concerned with an article on the disposal of protected health information that was published in the June 1, 2011 issue of Managed Care Outlook. In the article, Niedzwiecki (2011) discusses the conditions under which it is appropriate to shred documents that contain protected health information. Niedzwiecki (2011) focuses on the problem of what should be done with paper originals after a patient’s private information has been placed in an electronic format. The basic solution to this problem is to shred sensitive paper documents before disposing of them. However, there is more to this issue, because some paper documents do not need to be disposed of and still others should not be disposed of. Therefore, as Niedzwiecki (2011) proposes, healthcare organizations should have a clearly stated policy regarding when documents should be shredded and when they should not......
