ANALYSIS OF JOHN Q 2
Analysis of John Q (2002)
Medical professionals regularly face ethical and moral dilemmas that, if they do not
know how to solve, might compromise the health of the patients. Therefore, the way healthcare
professionals handle different situations when dealing with the patients and their colleagues
determines their profession. HIPAA rules highlight security provisions and data privacy that
protect patient's medical information. The rules ensure that healthcare professionals not only
treat patients with equal care but also protect them from severe medical implications. John
realizes that his son needs immediate medical attention after he falls sick during the basketball
game. John does not lose hope but tries everything he can include selling everything he owns to
get a heart transplant for his son.
Unfortunately, John learns in the conference room that his medical insurance cannot
cover the cost of a heart transplant and, therefore, will have to pay in cash. In desperate need to
save his son, John takes the hospital hostage until they attend to his son. There is no heart
available that matches his son's blood, but he is willing to kill himself and donate the heart
(Movieclips Classics Trailers, 2014). The hospital staff later receives the information that a
woman with the same blood group wants to donate her heart to John's son. The surgery goes on
successfully, but the authorities take John to jail but later get acquitted for some of the charges,
and the possibilities are that he will be in prison for at least two years. Therefore, the movie John
Q (2002) presents many ethical and legal issues as well as HIPAA violations.
Describe your immediate feelings about the film
The film made me sad and happy because John and his family struggled to ensure their
son was alive despite how the doctors handled their situation. I felt sad that the doctor had to
inform them that they had to pay at least 30% of the hospital fee to carry out heart transplant
