How physician executives and clinicians perceive ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals. (1/278)

OBJECTIVES: To compare the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals and the attributes that might lead to the existence of these ethical issues. DESIGN: Self-completion questionnaire administered from February to July 1997. SETTING: Different health regions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. PARTICIPANTS: Random sample of 457 physicians (317 clinicians and 140 physician executives) from several hospitals in various regions across the kingdom. RESULTS: There were statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding the existence of various ethical issues in their hospitals. The vast majority of physician executives did not perceive that seven of the eight issues addressed by the study were ethical concerns in their hospitals. However, the majority of the clinicians perceived that six of the same eight issues were ethical considerations in their hospitals. Statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians were observed in only three out of eight attributes that might possibly lead to the existence of ethical issues. The most significant attribute that was perceived to result in ethical issues was that of hospitals having a multinational staff. CONCLUSION: The study calls for the formulation of a code of ethics that will address specifically the physicians who work in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As a more immediate initiative, it is recommended that seminars and workshops be conducted to provide physicians with an opportunity to discuss the ethical dilemmas they face in their medical practice.  (+info)

Protective truthfulness: the Chinese way of safeguarding patients in informed treatment decisions. (2/278)

The first part of this paper examines the practice of informed treatment decisions in the protective medical system in China today. The second part examines how health care professionals in China perceive and carry out their responsibilities when relaying information to vulnerable patients, based on the findings of an empirical study that I had undertaken to examine the moral experience of nurses in practice situations. In the Chinese medical ethics tradition, refinement [jing] in skills and sincerity [cheng] in relating to patients are two cardinal virtues that health care professionals are required to possess. This notion of absolute sincerity carries a strong sense of parental protectiveness. The empirical findings reveal that most nurses are ambivalent about telling the truth to patients. Truth-telling would become an insincere act if a patient were to lose hope and confidence in life after learning of his or her disease. In this system of protective medical care, it is arguable as to whose interests are being protected: the patient, the family or the hospital. I would suggest that the interests of the hospital and the family members who legitimately represent the patient's interests are being honoured, but at the expense of the patient's right to know.  (+info)

An international survey of medical ethics curricula in Asia. (3/278)

SETTING: Medical ethics education has become common, and the integrated ethics curriculum has been recommended in Western countries. It should be questioned whether there is one, universal method of teaching ethics applicable worldwide to medical schools, especially those in non-Western developing countries. OBJECTIVE: To characterise the medical ethics curricula at Asian medical schools. DESIGN: Mailed survey of 206 medical schools in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Mongolia, Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Australia and New Zealand. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 100 medical schools responded, a response rate of 49%, ranging from 23%-100% by country. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The degree of integration of the ethics programme into the formal medical curriculum was measured by lecture time; whether compulsory or elective; whether separate courses or unit of other courses; number of courses; schedule; total length, and diversity of teachers' specialties. RESULTS: A total of 89 medical schools (89%) reported offering some courses in which ethical topics were taught. Separate medical ethics courses were mostly offered in all countries, and the structure of vertical integration was divided into four patterns. Most deans reported that physicians' obligations and patients' rights were the most important topics for their students. However, the evaluation was diverse for more concrete topics. CONCLUSION: Offering formal medical ethics education is a widespread feature of medical curricula throughout the study area. However, the kinds of programmes, especially with regard to integration into clinical teaching, were greatly diverse.  (+info)

The right to be treated against her will. (4/278)

... My sister's inconsistent and intermittent treatment over the past eight years is largely a result of her own indecision and the inconsistencies of her abnormal mental state. The professionals who might have taken control of the situation as her health and functioning deteriorated have not done so and I must presume that they believe they cannot do so. I do not think her case is unique. There are many more people living in the community who are severely ill and are being deprived of treatment they need.  (+info)

A framework for an institutional high level security policy for the processing of medical data and their transmission through the Internet. (7/278)

BACKGROUND: The Internet provides many advantages when used for interaction and data sharing among health care providers, patients, and researchers. However, the advantages provided by the Internet come with a significantly greater element of risk to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information. It is therefore essential that Health Care Establishments processing and exchanging medical data use an appropriate security policy. OBJECTIVE: To develop a High Level Security Policy for the processing of medical data and their transmission through the Internet, which is a set of high-level statements intended to guide Health Care Establishment personnel who process and manage sensitive health care information. METHODS: We developed the policy based on a detailed study of the existing framework in the EU countries, USA, and Canada, and on consultations with users in the context of the Intranet Health Clinic project. More specifically, this paper has taken into account the major directives, technical reports, law, and recommendations that are related to the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data, and the protection of privacy and medical data on the Internet. RESULTS: We present a High Level Security Policy for Health Care Establishments, which includes a set of 7 principles and 45 guidelines detailed in this paper. The proposed principles and guidelines have been made as generic and open to specific implementations as possible, to provide for maximum flexibility and adaptability to local environments. The High Level Security Policy establishes the basic security requirements that must be addressed to use the Internet to safely transmit patient and other sensitive health care information. CONCLUSIONS: The High Level Security Policy is primarily intended for large Health Care Establishments in Europe, USA, and Canada. It is clear however that the general framework presented here can only serve as reference material for developing an appropriate High Level Security Policy in a specific implementation environment. When implemented in specific environments, these principles and guidelines must also be complemented by measures, which are more specific. Even when a High Level Security Policy already exists in an institution, it is advisable that the management of the Health Care Establishment periodically revisits it to see whether it should be modified or augmented.  (+info)

A revolution in biomedical assessment: the development of salivary diagnostics. (8/278)

Since the early 1900s, saliva has proven to be a noninvasive medium from which to measure a wide range of hormones, pharmaceuticals, and antibodies. It has also proven to be a convenient source of host and microbial DNA. As we enter the era of genomic medicine, increasing use of salivary diagnostics will help catalyze a shift from disease diagnosis to health surveillance. However, with the advances in this technology comes the additional obligation to ensure the privacy and rights of patients.  (+info)

An extensive autopsy reveals that patient rights suffered from many disabling conditions, including:. Politics. Good old-fashioned partisanship in which Republicans and Democrats posture, blame each other for everything under the sun and definitely dont compromise. The key moments: In July, when the parties could not even agree on debate rules in the Senate, and in August, when Clinton announced he would veto the House and Senate GOP measures. The level of HMO-bashing rose to such a crescendo in the last several months that it harmed the atmosphere to produce meaningful legislation, says Ari Fleischer, spokesman for the House Ways and Means Committee. It was a political hot potato - instead of an issue, it became a cause - and once issues become causes in Congress, theyre subject to partisanship and are very difficult to legislate.. Monica.

Patients rights consist of all the duties a medical center is bound to do in dealing with the patient; and the charter of patients rights insures the improvement of relationship between the patient and medical personnel. This study is a challenge to review these issues. This cross sectional study and was done in summer 2010.

The data were analyzed using spss version 16 using a,0.05 as the level of significance criterion. Among the general physicians there were 69 % male and 31% female. Majority of these physicians have a moderate knowledge about the charter of patients rights including 240 items (68.4). There was a significant correlation between ...
In August 2001, the Israeli Ministry of Health issued its Limitation of Smoking in Public Places Order, categorically forbidding smoking in hospitals. This forced the mental health system to cope with the issue of smoking inside psychiatric hospitals. The main problem was smoking by compulsorily hospitalized psychiatric patients in closed wards. An attempt by a psychiatric hospital to implement the tobacco smoking restraint instruction by banning the sale of cigarettes inside the hospital led to the development of a black market and cases of patient exploitation in return for cigarettes. This article surveys the literature dealing with smoking among psychiatric patients, the role of smoking in patients and the moral dilemmas of taking steps to prevent smoking in psychiatric hospitals. It addresses the need for public discussion on professional caregivers dilemmas between their commitment to uphold the law and their duty to act as advocates for their patients rights and welfare. ...

Our journey into the deep bowels of hell began one evening in the summer of 2018. My husband had had shortness of breath for a while. He had gone to see a nurse practitioner because of the shortness of breath. She did the tests and gave him some medicines for bronchitis. The symptoms were relieved for a while but then came back. He didnt think much about it as he always has congestion due to allergies and we both know that medicines and medical intervention rarely cure anything completely. My husband had prostate cancer and knows the cure causes other severe issues. He also knew that the cure for the cure needs its own cure and so on. Just watch any prescription drug commercial on tv.. On the evening of his heart attack, I found him leaning over the seat of the sofa in pain, rolling back and forth. I told him he needed emergency help as I felt he was having a heart attack. He said he didnt think so as he was known to have back spasms due to old injuries. We live in the country so I ...

H.R. 358 contains other provisions revealing complete disregard for womens health and lives. It permits states to enact sweeping refusal laws that would allow health plans to refuse to cover womens preventive services, including birth control, without cost-sharing - undoing a new protection under health reform supported by 66 percent of Americans. It also codifies and significantly expands an already expansive refusal clause (also known as the Weldon amendment) without any regard for patient rights or protections. Under current law (through the 2004 Weldon amendment), hospitals, health care facilities, and insurance plans can refuse to provide, pay for, provide coverage of, or refer for abortions. The Weldon amendment has no protections for patients to ensure they have access to care and information in a timely manner. H.R. 358 codifies this unfair and discriminatory provision. H.R. 358 further allows health care entities-hospitals, clinics-to refuse to participate in abortion care. This ...
