Fulton State Hospital - Concordia University-Nebraska
Rationale: The following assignment was selected from the Human Resources class. It shows some of the skills and competencies I have learned in demonstrating principles of ethical reasoning and professional practice implicit in public health decisions to improve the publics health. For this assignment, we were to work as a group to develop a new employee orientation on an organization. We were to cover some overall aspects of the organization and some of the main policies including benefits, size, history, security, discipline, and the ethical decisions that may be faced at the organization. We chose to right about the facility that I work in and provided many details about its functions, the different roles employees have, benefits, etc. I wrote about the ethical framework of the organization. I wrote about a few of the ethical decisions that staff may face every day: medications, treatment, and transfers. Many people with mental illness are prescribed medications; we believe in choice, but sometimes and person is violent and too ill and refuses to take them. We may have to go through a process that forces medications which may be difficult for people to understand. Some staff may find it difficult to treat some of the patients that we treat; they are forensic patients, meaning they have committed some type of crime, some of them are very bad, and some staff may feel these people do not deserve to be treated. Doing therapy with that person every day may be very difficult for the staff member, but it is a struggle that they have to
accept because we believe in helping all individuals. There is the opposite dilemma for some staff. We can be slow to transfer someone out of the facility into a less-restrictive setting because we have to take not only the patients progress into account but what their crime was and whether we believe no one else will get hurt. We have to weigh the risk to society with the patients rights. This fits with this competency because I was able to show the ability to demonstrate ethical reasoning in making health decisions in an organization and how those decisions could contribute to improving health.
