Conflict at the Office Ethical and Legal Implications Discussion

Question Description


You are a family nurse practitioner working in an outpatient primary care office of a large hospital system. The practice has been operating for over 15 years, and many of the administrative and clinical staff were hired when the practice opened. You have been in the practice for less than 3 months. In that short amount of time, you have witnessed several of the clinical staff engaging in heated arguments with each other, sometimes in patient areas. You overhear an argument occurring today between two staff. You pick up a patient's chart and notice a very low blood pressure that the medical assistant failed to notify you about. When you confront the MA, she states that she was going to report the vital signs to you when she became engaged in the heated argument you overheard and forgot to notify you.

Potential ethical and legal implications
High-stress levels could lead to the reduced performance level of the employees at the
workplace. It is unlikely for employees working in a low-stress environment to have reported
decreased performance. In the presented case, one is not sure whether the Medical Assistant
(MA) was working under high or low stress. However, it is evident that there was a lack of
communication and it was the cause of the existing problem. The MA did not inform the family
nurse practitioner about the blood pressure of the patient sin...
