Case 2.7 Ethical Dilemma

...Case Analysis 2-7: Milton Manufacturing Company Milton Manufacturing Company is a closely-held company has been in business since 1999 when its President Irv Milton first opened the business with its primary operations in Long Island City, New York and factory branches and warehouses in surrounding areas. The business had increased revenue over its first ten years of business from $500,000 in its first year to $5 million in 2008. Facts However, in 2009 revenues declined to $4.5 million along with net cash flows from all activities declining in 2009 as well. Overall capital expenditures for the company have been continually increasing by 26% each year. Milton had planned on borrowing $20 million in the fourth quarter of 2010 from the credit markets. In 2010, current cash flow is expected to increase due to higher projections of revenue and cash collections from the business—and therefore selling and producing more products than currently are. Therefore, when Irv Milton meets with Ann Plotkin, the CAO to discuss plan proposals to deal with these changes in the most effective way possible. Unconcerned about the cash flow decrease, the CAO is more concerned about remaining qualified for the expected $20 million loan and suggests a plan that will put a temporary cap on capital expenditures for 2010 such that the 26% annual increase in capital expenditures will not be an issue this year. The CAO suggests that they be limited to the amount of capital expenditures in...

Alcoa Ethical Climate Case Study

...Module 2 Case Study 1. Alcoa’s ethical work climate would be classified as benevolence. As shown time after time, Alcoa and its CEO, upper management, and employees, all care for their consumers and especially for each other. The strong moral to keep incident and injury rates low is a clear indication that Alcoa’s ethical work climate is benevolence. 2. Top management at Alcoa plays a key role at developing and maintaining its strong ethical culture. Management insures that employees are trained early on that every decision made must align with company values. They also have continuous ethics and compliance training for all employees. The president documented their values, explicitly stating all things Alcoa strives for in their ethical culture. They also implemented a global ethics and compliance program, which focused on health and safety. A position in top management is specifically designed as an ethics and compliance officer who reports directly to the CEO. Alcoa also has a global helpline reporting system. Management continuously reinforces all these things that develop the ethical culture. 3. While the facility manager had an excellent track record of profits and efficiency, it was necessary for O’Neill to fire him. Alcoa has set itself on a high pedestal by being explicitly public with its values. If O’Neill had allowed the incident to slip by, Alcoa could be seen as hypocritical. It has taken Alcoa a long time to develop the strong ethical culture and......

Martha's Case: Ethical Dilemmas

...NASW Ethical Responsibilities to the Clients Step 1: In the NASW (2008) Code of Ethics ethical standards, it states, “In general, clients’ interests are primary”. This of course, is joined by a supplemental responsibility to the greater society and/or legal obligations, which may outweigh any such loyalty owed clients. Nevertheless, as long as harm is absent from the equation, it seems that law would hold little bearing on decisions that are in the client’s best interest. In the case of Martha, by deciding to continue to work with her and keep this information confidential I would be choosing to uphold my responsibility to my client, thus choosing the authority of outcome. This decision would preclude a number potential harms to Martha and her family. The most relevant being her continued successful participation in the CPS plan. If Martha’s boyfriend’s participation continues to be facilitated, Martha will have the child-care and financial support needed to attain her GED and potentially close her case with CPS. Also, though the boyfriend is not your official client, you are providing a subtle succor for another individual because not reporting allows him to have a place to live. The NASW (2008) ethical standards include other responsibilities, such as to the profession and our colleagues, however violating these rules (responsibilities) and upholding the standard listed above will yield what NASW claims to be its overall objective: to ensure the well-being and...

Ethical Case Study

...An Ethical Case Study: Jerry McCall Heather Sewell HCS335 November 4, 2013 Susan Kajfasz An Ethical Case Study: Jerry McCall The Jerry McCall case study involves a health care worker who is a medical assistant and LPN and b faces a legal and ethical decision when a patient insists on a prescription of Valium while Jerry is in the office alone. Jerry must decide how to provide the patient with what he needs while maintaining the law and his ethical values. Jerry McCall, although he received professional training as a medical assistant and an LPN, is not qualified to refill a prescription for a patient. According to New York State Law, LPNs are not allowed to work independently. The law “requires LPNs to practice under the direction of a registered professional nurse, nurse practitioner, physician, dentist, physician assistant, specialist assistant, podiatrist, or midwife” (Office of the Professions, n.d.). Jerry is aware of the rules and regulations concerning prescriptions and should not be intimidated by a pushy patient. Rules and laws are in place to protect both patients from injury and health care workers from malpractice. The law covers all medications because a patient can have an adverse reaction to even a common medication which is why all prescriptions must be ordered by licensed professionals. It does not matter whether the patient requests a daily medication such as a blood pressure medication or Valium as in Jerry’s case. The only legal way...

Case Study Ethical

...Case Study –Ethical Issues Mr. Bailey is a 90 year old admitted with exacerbation of COPD. He is short of breath and has worsening pulmonary edema. He is oxygen dependent. He is alert and orientated. His code status is DNR and has a supportive family. He is very SOB when talking. Mr. Bailey tells the nurse that he wants to talk to the doctor about taking the O2 off and leaving it off so he can go to sleep. He shares that he is tired of being sick. “I know this disease will kill me.” Mr. Bailey’s family arrives and he discusses the above with his children. They openly discuss that if the O2 is removed he will die. The family is upset but supports his choice. The MD comes in and turns off the O2 and removes the nasal cannula. An hour and a half after the O2 is removed, Mr. Bailey dies. 1. Is this case unusual? Yes, he discusses that he wants to speak with the doctor about taking the Oxygen off, but there wasn’t a discussion with the doctor. 2. What is the Patient Self Determination Act? This act requires healthcare facilities that receive Medicare/Medicaid funding to inform their patients about their right to initiate an advance directive, and the right to consent to or refuse medical treatment. 3. Describe the purpose of 3 advanced directives (ex. Living Will, DPOA, Health Care Proxy) -A living will gives you some say in the medical decisions that must be made while you can't respond.

Ethical Case Study

...Ethics Case Study HCS 335 March 2, 2015 Victor Gibb Ethics Case Study Ethics is a branch of philosophy in which human actions are judged to be either right or wrong based upon a person's particular set of values, when these judgments are applied to a specific profession than they are referred to as professional ethics (Garret & Baillee, 2009). Personal and professional ethics often overlap and sometimes the two conflict. There are also scopes that apply to professional practice, and one must adhere to their scope and not practice outside of that scope. This paper will explore the ethical and legal concerns related to a case of whether or not a licensed practical nurse (LPN)/ certified medical assistant (CMA) should call in a refill for a prescription for a patient/friend of the doctor he works for. Jerry’s medical training does not qualify him to issue an order for a refill on the prescription for Valium because prescribing medications is not listed in the scope of practice for LPN’s/CMA’s in any state. LPN’s may administer medications but prescribing of medication is limited to medical doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and psychiatrists (American Nurses Association, 2015). Jerry could take a verbal order to renew the prescription from the doctor if the doctor were available to give that order as an LPN (Fremgen, 2009). CMA’s are also not able to prescribe medications and are not able to take verbal orders to for medications; therefore Jerry...

Case Study: Ethical Banks

...Cason Keith ALED 424 3/10/15 Boyd Case Study 2: Ethical Banks Moral objectivism is the view that what is morally right or wrong depends on what someone thinks. Jay McGuane had put together a very diverse board of people with many different backgrounds and beliefs. This led to each of them having very different moral values. Some of them saw no problem with giving the loan the gun manufacturer, while others were extremely opposed. They each saw it differently because of their own personal beliefs. So moral objectivism was very apparent on the bank’s board of directors. In “Good to Great” Jim Collins talks about getting the right people on the bus before going anywhere. The right people are what is going to make it all work. Jay McGuane didn’t get the right people on the bus first and didn’t have an established direction so it made things very difficult. His board of directors were all way too different in their beliefs and they would never be able to agree on much of anything and there weren’t any clear guidelines to direct their way of thinking. Jay needs to go back to the beginning and get the right people on board so he can get where he wants to be. There really aren’t many defined values of Rocky Mountain Green Bank. They want to promote environmentally friendly and green companies, projects, and corporations but doing business with just those companies is not profitable. Other than that, there is no real business direction because Jay McGuane never laid...

Ethical Case Study Answer

...The Case of the Troubled Computer Programmer By: William J. Frey This case study was developed from a scenario provided by Olga Rosas-Velez, presented before the DOLCE workshop, summer 2000. You are a computer programmer working for a small business that provides specialized financial services to local, mostly small businesses. You have been working for company X for about six months. Recently X has been occupied with reengineering the inventory system of a local hardware chain, ABC Hardware. The objective is to enable ABC to keep better track of their inventory, to be more responsive to changes in customer demand, and to adopt a “just in time” strategy to reduce inventory. Your supervisor calls you into his office. “Do you know of any existing software products to help ABC keep better track of its inventory?” You mention a particular product that you have worked with in another job and point out that ABC could use it without any modification. The only drawback, you point out, is that this software is somewhat expensive. Your supervisor leans back in his chair, puffs on his cigar and says, “That’s no problem. We have that software. Why don’t you just install it on ABC’s computers?” You diplomatically indicate that this would violate the licensing agreement X has with the developers of the software. “Do it anyway,” your supervisor says. “Nobody’s going to find out, and ABC is a very important client. We need to do all we can to keep them happy.” What...

Ethical Case Study Essay

...Ethical Case Study Reflection Paper Do we, as parents, have the right to decide if we will let our child die from a treatable illness? Do we, as a society, have the right to decide if we will allow other people's children to die? Suppose an Atheist judge rules that a Christian mother has to seek medical treatment for her child, is this a moral concern? In 46 states, parents can withhold traditional medical care for their sick children in favor of prayer or faith healing with no fear of prosecution. The state of Minnesota passed a law in 1994 that requires parent and guardians to contact child protective services if a child has been endangered by withholding medical treatment, none have been reported. The state of Colorado will not hold parents legally responsible so long as the faith-healing treatment is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service and insurance companies. This same law has been rescinded in Oregon, South Dakota, Hawaii, Maryland and Massachusetts. (htttp://www.religioustolerance.org). The winds are changing though, in recent years more parents are perhaps not being convicted, but are being charged for neglect or manslaughter. In 2008 Carl and Raylene Worthington of Oregon, were charged with manslaughter in the death of their 1-year-old daughter, who died from pneumonia. (http://www.cbsnews.com). Mr. Worthington was found guilty of second degree criminal mistreatment and received a sentence of 60 days in jail, 5 years probation and a court...

Case Stude of Ethical Conflicts

...Coty Hampton Business Ethics Cohorts 49 Ethical Conflicts in Ethical Companies There's a story making the rounds about a consultant who was called into a lumber company. Profits were slipping and management couldn't figure out what was causing it. All of the other performance measures were stable or increasing. The consultant did what consultants do, talking with a large number of employees. He observed several things about this particular lumber company, including the fact that working conditions were somewhat austere and that the dominant leadership style was autocratic, almost to the point of being abusive. In one of his many conversations, the consultant asked an employee how it was that, given the difficult working conditions and harsh leadership style, there wasn't more absenteeism, poor production or any of the other typical symptoms of an organization that was "hard" on its workers. The employee answered, "Oh that's easy. When we get frustrated, or angry we just feed the hog." Seeing the puzzled look on the consultant's face the employee explained. The "hog" was the big mechanical wood chipper at the back of the plant. All unusable scrap was fed to the hog to make the wood chips that go into particle board, one of the least profitable products the company manufactured. "When we get upset," he explained, "we take finished lumber and feed the hog." (And the company never knows where the chips came from. After all, you can't tell scrap wood from finished lumber...

Bobby Petrino Ethical Case

...Bobby Petrino: Arkansas Razorbacks Coach Bobby Petrino was the head football coach for the University of Arkansas and in his four-year career led the Razorbacks to a 34-17 record. He dreamed of driving the Razorbacks to a championship win; however, his dream was shattered due to his own poor and unethical actions. Bobby Petrino’s inappropriate relationship with a former student, misuse of program funds, and dishonesty led to his dismissal from the University. This paper gives a brief overview of the Bobby Petrino case, my thoughts on his behavior and University’s action against him. Case Overview In overview of the Bobby Petrino case, Petrino was a married man with four children and he had an excellent career coaching the Arkansas Razorbacks football team. He coached the Razorbacks to many victories during his time at the University of Arkansas and won the appreciation, trust, and respect of Razorback fans for his accomplishments. However, he lost all appreciation, trust, and respect when his affair with 25-year-old former University volleyball athlete, Jessica Dorrell was televised and released in the news. His actions brought shame and embarrassment upon his team and the college. On top of having an affair with her, he used program funds to hire her as his athletic coordinator and supplied her with a personal bonus/gift for taking the position. Dorrell was hired into her position because of her relationship with Petrino not her qualifications. There were several...
