Describe the role of the FDA in protecting the safety of Americans


There are health care policies in the U.S. to protect patients from faulty, dangerous or

unnecessary medicines, medical procedures, and services. Give an example of one of these

policies. Provide specific examples on how the policy you selected protects patients. Describe

ways healthcare managers support the implementation of this law.

Theme 4:

Patients have a bill of rights. Patients also consent to care and have a right to self-determine their care. Those who care for patients are to keep information protected.

Select one of the patient rights (ethical or legal issues) from readings this week. Discuss with your colleagues the right, the legal and/or ethical basis for this right and how this translates into responsibility for a specific health service organization setting. Provide two specific real life legal case examples that you find on the internet or in the print media. Examples: assisted living facilities for disabled, long term care facility, a home care nursing association, a small physician practice, a hospital, a rehabilitation center, or a first responder/ambulance. Remember:

1. The patient right (with proper legal citation);

2. The health care organization’s responsibility.

Peer comments should compare and contrast the impact of the patient rights on each setting. Read the background articles. This discussion requires research beyond the above articles. See Discussion Expectations and Grading for rules on discussions.
