Read and reflect on the prompt entitled “Apologizing at Community Hospital,” which is on Sakai under the Resources tab.  Address the following issues and questions in your paper. Ethics Portion (2-3 pages) a. What ethical issues does Karen face? b. Who are the stakeholders and what makes them stakeholders (i.e., what are their interests)? c. What choices does Karen face in response to the lawsuit? d. If you were Karen, what would you do? Why would you take that course of action? How would you explain your course of action to the Hospital’s Board of Directors? What should you say? How should you say it? (It is OK to use the first-person “I” when answering these questions.) [Banner ID] [Class Day/Time] 2 e. What 2-3 ethical models (from Chapter 2) could you apply here? Define the models and how they could help you decide what to do. (Note: the seeing-knowing-doing concept is NOT an ethical model that informs ethical decision-making. Rather, it is simply a description of the process of ethical decision-making. You should use 2- 3 of the other traditional ethical models we covered in class and/or from Chapter 2.) Legal Portion (~4-5 pages) 1. Tom Beach’s family sued the Hospital for negligence as a result of his death. What does Tom’s family need to prove at trial in order to succeed on a claim for negligence? 2. Also, assume that upon his admission to the Emergency Room, Tom signed a contract with the Hospital that said, “Hospital agrees to treat Tom with the required level of medical care for his needs.” Did the Hospital breach this provision of the contract based on the facts in the story? Explain why or why not. 3. Finally, assume that after the first day of trial, Karen gets cold feet and asks her legal team if there are any alternatives to court available to resolve the dispute with Tom’s family. a. What alternatives to court are available? (Please only focus on the two alternative dispute resolution mechanisms we discussed in class.) b. What are the pros and cons of each alternative? c. Which option would you recommend to Karen and why?
