Ethical & Cost Dilemmas in Health Care

Updated on December 18, 2014

Health Care Industry

I believe that the Surgeon General should be responsible for the protecting of the public from unethical, ineffective, or unduly hazardous procedures. I went to the Surgeon General’s website to see all that the job requires. I found that the Surgeon General’s job is to provide the public with top of the line information concerning illness prevention and health preservation. I think that the Surgeon General should provide more opportunities for the public to become involved in the decision making process for the marketing of new drugs or medicines.

Moreover, I feel that the AMA should also be allowed to work closely with the government in correcting unethical and ineffective procedures or practices while at the same time upholding and enforcing ethical standards or guidelines that must be adhere to by all practitioners for the safety of consumers(Sultz,Young,2006). I also think that all medical organizations should be held accountable for the safety of consumers and adhere to guidelines that will also give consumers peace of mind concerning the treatments they undergo (Sultz, Young, 2006).

Furthermore, I believe that effective oversight activities or programs can be effective in catching those who fall into the gaps without sacrificing the trust of consumers in health professions and institutions. And according to the text, it was said,” that many health care system employees are frustrated over issues that lies in the management of institutions”(Sultz,Young,2006).Therefore, if effective oversight activities are implemented then consumers and health care professionals trust will increase tremendously.

      Hello Brittany

      Thank you for submitting your commit to my post. I did cite my information properly using the APA documentation format that I used in college for my bachelor and master degree. The reason why you can't find all of this information is because you must look in the medical journals that are used for the Health care administration four year college program. You can go to google scholar to look up the information which in turn will show some of the medical journals that are used by medical students and resident doctors. If you purchase these books you will also find some of this same information referenced in them. The books are Essentials of Health Care Finance,7th Edition by William DCheverly,Paula H. Song, James O Cheverely, Adaptive Health Management Information Systems by Joseph Tan and Essentials of Managed Healthcare Fifth Edition. You can also look at the Purdue Owl University's book to see the MLA and APA documentation formats.
