healthcare ethics : Students will complete an APA paper about the following case study.  The provided case study represents ethical issues of historical interest. Case Study A nurse has sued Memorial Hospital, charging that she was demoted after complaining about a heart surgeon tossing bloody tissue at her during an operation. The eight-page complaint filed Friday in U.S. District Court by Sonja Morris alleges that Dr. Bryan Mahan tossed the 4-by-6-inch piece of tissue at her, hitting her on the leg during an open-heart surgery in August 2008. She contends Mahan made a joke about it to the other surgeons, saying, “Oh (expletive), I hit her. Can we get cultures on that?” Morris said she felt humiliated as the other surgeons chuckled. Mahan could not be reached for comment Friday afternoon. Morris claims that the incident was part of a pattern of harassing behavior by Mahan toward her. She also alleged that in June 2008, Mahan came up behind her and hit her in the head. She told him to stop, but two weeks later, he did it again, the suit alleged. Again she asked him to stop. Chris Valentine, a spokesman for the hospital, declined to comment on the lawsuit. “Obviously, because it’s in legal hands, we’re not in a position to comment,” he said. Mahan is the chairman of cardiac and thoracic medicine at Memorial. He is not named as a defendant in the lawsuit. Morris has worked at the hospital as a nurse since June 1999. She has been a member of the heart surgery team since October 2007. The incident with the bloody tissue occurred on Aug. 28, 2008, after normal working hours during an operation in which doctors were doing a procedure known as a pericardiectomy. The surgery involved removing a protective layer of tissue from the heart. Morris contends that was the bloody tissue that Mahan tossed at her. She said she was standing at a work station about 15 feet away from the operating table. Because the operation was still in progress, she was unable to immediately clean the part of her leg that the tissue hit. She filed a complaint about the incident but said that resulted in no disciplinary action. On Dec. 10, she filed a notice of claim against Mahan and the hospital. Her complaint to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleged that she was subjected to a hostile work environment because of her gender. Seven days later, she said hospital administrators removed her from the heart surgery team, considered a prestigious position, and transferred her to the main operating room. The suit alleged that this action violated her First Amendment rights to petition the hospital to correct something she considered wrong. Ensslin, J.C. (2009, June 6).

Health Care Facility Flow Diagram : Assignment Content When designing facilities, there are many stakeholders who will be affected by its design. It is important to understand that each of the stakeholders will have a unique perspective of the facility based on their role. Imagine you are a stakeholder (i.e., nurse, physician, patient, family member of patient, or janitorial staff) who will use the facility that was presented by the design team. Select One stakeholder: Nurse Physician Patient Family member of patient Janitorial staff Review the facility and consider how the perspective of the stakeholder you selected may be different from another stakeholder, such as a nurse versus a patient. It is important to consider the stakeholder’s role and use of the facility (i.e., who they interact with, functions they perform, and departments they interact with). Complete the attached Facility Diagram PDF presented by the design team. You will notice the doors are missing on the facility presented. Label where you will add doors into rooms. Label the rooms in the facility presented. Consider adding basic equipment to the space to help you with orientation and use for your stakeholders. Complete a flow diagram using the facility diagram you added doors to and label rooms above. Make sure to use your research of FGIs. The flow diagram needs to show your stakeholder’s use (flow) of the facility. The flow should show the use from dirty to clean and clean to dirty. The flow diagram needs to clearly indicate each stakeholder selected. Consider using different markers (i.e., color, shapes). Write a 350- to 700-word summary of your review of the facility. Your summary should: Identify each stakeholder’s role selected for the flow diagram. Discuss whether this space worked or did not work for each stakeholder. Identify your cross points. Do they create hubs that could reduce foot traffic? Identify whether the flow supports current build of the facility and FGI guidelines. Identify 1 possible improvement or alternative that would support sustainable health care facility design and the stakeholder flow in this facility. Describe the steps you would take to implement the improvements or alternative designs. Identify at least 2 evaluation techniques that are used to measure project success. Consider the type of data needed to evaluate success. Cite at least 2 reputable references. One reference must be from the journals/magazine listed in the weekly resources (i.e., Modern Healthcare, Healthcare Design). Reputable references include trade or industry publications, government or agency websites, scholarly works, or other sources of similar quality. Format your assignment according to APA guidelines.

Select One stakeholder:

Nurse
Physician
Patient
Family member of patient
