Ethics presentation lessons - 21 ethic questions with sources for and against

Ethics presentation lessons - 21 ethic questions with sources for and against

This is a comprehensive set of lesson resources that I have created for form lesson time. The lessons begin with the PowerPoint that introduces a brief history of ethics (religion, Socrates, Kant) then gets students to consider what we mean by the term 'ethics'. A definition is provided. The teacher then goes through how the presentations will be structured and tips for giving a good quality presentation. Students then select which one of the 21 questions they would like to investigate using the sources that have been carefully provided. Many of these sources I have come across (e.g. the Sports Gene, James Mitchell). Others I have had to research. Websites links are provided. Students then plan their presentations and present for 3 to 5 minutes. There is a checklist that can be used to provide feedback. The pictures used are not under copyright protection.

Nurse Malpractice - Nurse Misconduct - Medicine & Law - 72 SLIDES TOTALLY

Nurse Malpractice - Nurse Misconduct - Medicine & Law - 72 SLIDES TOTALLY

Product Description This is a complete presentation on Nurse Malpractice - Nurse Misconduct - Medicine & Law. There is also a 20 point multiple choice test with answer key plus a complete set of Flashcards for reviewing the presentation. THERE ARE MANY ACTUAL SLIDES FOR YOUR REVIEW ON THIS PAGE. THIS IS YOUR BEST INDICATION OF PRODUCT QUALITY. The author is a retired lawyer, instructor and textbook writer. EXCERPT: It is increasingly well documented that some nurses are not taking care of patients because they are instead on their cell phone or tablet at the nurse’s station. Hospitals which employ distracted nurses increasingly face lawsuits. Case in Point: an elderly patient with a fever of 104.6F went to the ER, was triaged and placed in a room. Her husband and a neighbor were with her. After several hours, the neighbor went to the nursing station where there were six staff members using their cell phones. One staff member told the neighbor, “We’re talking to doctors about patients.” Then the patient’s husband went to the nursing station where he saw a nurse reading a book on an electronic tablet. A physician admitted the patient 14 hours after she arrived. 4 hours passed before antibiotics were administered to her. The patient developed sepsis and died. The husband sued for medical malpractice and used discovery to obtain cell phone records of all staff involved. The records revealed that none of the staff’s cell phone usage was work-related. Case # 2: [during cross examination, the attorney introduces posts from the nurse’s personal Facebook page. Says to nurse:] Attorney: Can you read the highlighted portion?
 Nurse: [reading] Oh, wow. Yes. Okay.
 Attorney : Can you read it?
 Nurse: “After enduring the worst day on duty I’ve had in a while, I just found out my next patient has lice. Freakin’ lice! I didn’t even know they still made those! Help!” What most distracted nurses do not realize is that if they are reading Facebook or surfing the Internet, all of that can be tracked with date and time, including the nurse’s personal tech devices and the hospital computers. Whenever an attorney is preparing for a deposition, one of the first things investigated is all social medial posts/pages. These have become gold mines of damaging information to use against nurses in malpractice cases.
