HCM4012 Case Studies In Healthcare

Legal Dilemma

 

You are the hospital administrator for a county hospital, which is funded in a large part by that county's property taxes. You discover that you have an indigent patient who has been mistakenly admitted as an inpatient to the hospital strictly for dialysis treatment. The hospital does not, as a general practice, provide only dialysis treatment for patients. This is beyond the scope of the hospital's mandate and is therefore, an inappropriate use of local property tax funding.

 

 

If the indigent patient is discharged from the hospital and dialysis treatment is terminated, the patient will become toxic and experience severe physical consequences, even death. However, if the patient is kept in the hospital for purposes of dialysis treatment only, the hospital must assume the burden of the patient's debt, without revenue to cover the associated cost.

 

 

Based on your understanding of the above scenario, create a report in a Microsoft Word document that includes an analysis using the classic decision model to keep the patient in the hospital or discharge them.

 

 

Include:

 

 

 

 

An introduction

 

 

Definition of the problem.

 

 

Identification of the stakeholders.

 

 

Identification of alternative solutions.

 

 

Evaluation of alternative solutions.

 

 

Solution chosen and how to implement it with the stakeholders.

 

 

Conclusion and reflection of this process.

 

 

To support your work, use your course and textbook readings and also use the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
