Activity 6: Ethics Committee(100 points)
As Director for Public Relations and Ethics for County Hospital, one of your principal duties is to organize and chair the hospital’s ethics committee. The hospital administration wants you and your committee to write end-of-life policies regarding the procedures used and permitted in the hospital for care of the dying, and especially regarding right-to-die and futility. The administration suggests the following composition for your ethics committee: a doctor, a nurse, an administrator, an accountant, several patients, a hospice worker, a right-to-life representative, and a right-to-die representative.
The agenda for the first meeting is to establish the baseline topics to be developed into a new policy handbook for County Hospital. Committee members were told to bring a list of concerns that they might have regarding end-of-life policies and procedures already in place at County Hospital.
Discuss at least two (2) concerns that each committee member might bring to the table during your first meeting. Your Activity responses should be both grammatically and mechanically correct and formatted in the same fashion as the Activity itself. If there is a Part A, your response should identify a Part A, etc. In addition, you must appropriately cite all resources used in your response and document them in a bibliography using APA style.(100 points)
