So throughout the assignment if the first sentence is an example of a tort claim or a wrongful termination of employment, then it would have to be identified after that sentence. I guess the answers would have to be in bold after the sentence where the issue was identified. It really needs to be done by someone who knows legal terminology and would know what each of the issues are. So to answer your question, 25 terminologies. These 25 issues would be terms such as false claims, kickbacks, tort claims, negligence, injury, healthcare fraud, criminal negligence, etc. It’s the assignment in a Legalities in Healthcare class. It is not a paper, but identifying the various possible legalities in a scenario given. You should know legal terminology and identify the legal issue in each scenario It isn’t a paper, just identify the legal terms Review the scenario below. Identify every issue relating to the material covered in this class raised by the scenario. Each issue is worth 2 points. Undergraduate students have 25 issues and a total of 50 points possible while graduate students have 30 issues and 60 points possible. You are not required to analyze the issue or give an opinion as to its likely resolution, but you are simply to identify the existence of the issue. By way of example, if the scenario indicates Dr. Bob performed an operation on Paul Patient without telling Paul what he was doing, one issue is whether the requirement for informed consent has been violated. There may be more than one issue per fact pattern. Paul is injured in a serious accident causing injuries so severe that his chances of recovery are very slight. When he arrives in the emergency room at All Saints, he is treated by Edgar, an Emergency Room Physician employed by ER DOCS, INC., but working at All Saints pursuant to a grant of privileges by the Credentialing Committee of All Saints. When Edgar first examines Paul he is concerned that the most pressing issue may be a ruptured spleen. The best way to diagnose this injury is with a CT machine. As All Saints is underfunded and located in a remote area, it does not have a CT machine. Therefore, Edgar begins a rudimentary diagnostic test used before the discovery of radiation. Prior to learning the results of the test, Edgar notices that Paul is in acute respiratory distress and orders a nearby Nurse, named Jackie, to assist him with restraining Paul. The customary straps used in this situation are broken, so Edgar orders Jackie to tie a piece of rope around Paul’s chest to confine him. Jackie does not believe this to be an appropriate method of restraint, but does so anyway since the doctor told her to. Paul ends up dying due to a ruptured aorta. Paul’s family sues Edgar, Jackie and All Saints. In the course of discovery, the plaintiffs seek all information reviewed by All Saint’s credentialing committee regarding Edgar’s privileges at the hospital, including treatment notes from an alcohol counselor treating Edgar for alcohol abuse. In addition, Great Benefit, Edgar’s professional malpractice carrier, denies coverage because it received notice of the claim 30 days after expiration of the coverage, even though the alleged act of negligence occurred during the policy period. During the course of further discovery in the matter, it was learned that Edgar was intoxicated while he was treating Paul, and that Jackie was aware of the intoxication. It is also learned that Jackie had alcohol and other substance abuse issues as well and had previously been accused of violence against patients when she worked at nearby St. Mary’s hospital. However, when she was hired there was a drastic shortage of nurses at All Saints and the hiring committee didn’t have the time to engage in a drawn out fact finding into prospective employee’s past employment. All Saints files a motion claiming there is no issue of fact and it should be awarded judgment as a matter of law because Edgar is not an employee of All Saints. The defendants also argue that the ruptured aorta was fatal, there was no way to repair that in time to save Paul, and that therefore even if they committed negligence, they are liable for no damages. Paul’s family counters that they should still be able to recover something because maybe there was a chance Paul could have survived had the other acts of negligence not been committed. At trial, there was a dispute between the parties as to evidence regarding the standard of care, as it relates to Edgar’s failure to order a CT scan. First, Edgar testified on his own behalf that he fulfilled the standard by ordering the “old fashioned” test. Second, the plaintiff then introduced evidence showing Edgar wasn’t actually a certified emergency room specialist. In the end, the jury couldn’t make heads or tails of the case and couldn’t decide whether the Plaintiff’s allegations were true or not. Subsequent to the resolution of the case, ER PHYS, LLC sues All Saints for not allowing its physicians to practice at the All Saints, and it also sues ER DOCS and Edgar because Edgar used to work for ER PHYS and had an agreement not to practice with another ER group within 30 miles for a period of two years following his severance from ER PHYS, which occurred within the last 6 months. During the trial of that matter, Edgar introduces evidence showing that ER PHYS did not comply with all of its obligations under the agreement in that it did not pay required bonuses to Edgar. After all of this litigation died down, All Saints management began looking at its employees more closely to ensure nothing like the Edgar scenario ever happened again. Since Jackie was still employed by the hospital, management started with her. She had no employment contract, so All Saints fired her without any reason. However, the termination came one day after Jackie’s supervisor saw her going to a meeting of the nurse’s bargaining unit following Jackie’s shift. Jackie ended up suing All Saints.
