Question description

Healthcare Ethics and

A woman arrives at a suburban emergency room in active labor. Both she and
her husband speak very little English. The staff determines that the mother (and
baby) is uninsured and unable to pay for healthcare services out-of-pocket. The
baby is showing signs of distress and needs to be delivered. The on-call OB-GYN
physician refuses to come to the hospital. He recommends that the patient be
transferred to another facility.  Provide a substantive 150 to 250 word initial
post that fully answers the following questions: 

  • What ethical principles relate to this case scenario?

  • What legal principles relate to this scenario?

  • What might the legal consequences be to the health care organization if
    there is a delay in treatment?

Utilize at least one scholarly source, cited in correct APA format that
supports factual statements and conclusions about the topic.  Review several of
your classmates’ posts. Provide a substantive response to at least two of your
peers by Day 7.
