Ethics Case Study

Resource: Ethics Case Study Grading Criteria on your student website

Read the case study in Ch. 4 of Medical Law and Ethics that begins, “Jerry McCall is Dr. William’s office assistant.”

Prepare a 700- to 1050-word paper in which you answer the following questions:

·  Does Jerry’s medical training qualify him to issue this refill order? Why or why not?

·  Would it make a difference if the medication requested were for control of high blood pressure that the patient critically needs on a daily basis? Why or why not?

·  If Jerry calls in the refill and the patient has an adverse reaction while flying, is Jerry protected from a lawsuit under the doctrine of respondent superior?

·  What is your advice to Jerry?

·  Identify major legal and ethical issues that may affect Jerry’s decision.

·  What problem-solving methods might be helpful to assist in making an ethical decision?

Include at least two sources in your paper.
