Ethical issues are problems or dilemmas involving moral compromise. They can arise anywhere.

Asthma isn't exactly a controversial topic like Abortion or Stem Cell research, however the fact that over 250,000 people die a year from Asthma attacks does raise some questions as to why treatment isn't improving as fast as we would hope it to.
There were many: 1) A doctor did not read a patient admittance form. Had he seen it, he would have noticed that she had just eaten. 2) The patient died after vomiting into her mask, and inhaling the vomit. 3) The doctor altered the admittance form. 4) The doctor coerced a nurse into hiding …the alteration. Later: 5)Paul Newman, the attorney, failed to present an offer of settlement to his client. He is required to present all offers of settlement. (MORE)
As with any other business, honesty, integrity, and, morals. As with other issues in todays world, people cannot know everything, about everything. Most people do not know vehicles, as well as they think they do. The commen person doen't have any idea what a carburetor is, where it is located, or, e…ven when they went out of use. Anytime an "expert" ha a customers vehicle, the customer is atr the mercy of the shop. There are laws in effect to protect the customer, but, they are antiquanted, at best. Having run two shops, and a dealership garage, I can tell you that good moral practices will produce results. A return ratio in the high 80% region, speaks for itself, in the auromotive trade, anyway. I have also scooped up a good share of the market due to "other" shops, and their sub-standard practices. People are getting "second opinions" these days, and are educating themselves more. I do NOT recommend crossing moral lines. The short term will not exceed the long term. Issues would include, deception of any sort. Examples would include, but not be limited to, "lying" about a needed repair, "creating" the needed repair, "overcharging" for the needed repair, "drawing out" the needed repair, (the front money was used to pay other bills), "not changing" the diagnosed item, (which probably wasn't bad to begin with). I used to insist that my service writters take the customer back, show them THEIR car on the rack, the diagnosed problem, and what a new part will do, correct, or, look like, at least. If their inquisitiveness continues, then, continue the education as far as they desire. THen, I always saw to it that the old part was at least offered, to the customer, in case they wanted to have it verifid. I have found over 27 years experience that the little extra it takes to satisfy the customers need to know, is well worth it in the long term. The new car manufacturers "build in" enough deceptions, and un needed service items already. The current market cannot absorb much more......chuck (MORE)

Anyone who receives or provides health services, and anyone who comes in contact with those who do (or do NOT) receive appropriate care to keep themselves and others safe from infectious diseases.
I think that the most important ethical issue in healthcare management is the protection of the patient's information, because it is both private and personal information. In the past, patient's medical records were accessible to anyone because they were out in the open on shelves or in filing cabin…ets. Today, this is no longer the case as the majority of healthcare facilities are now keeping their patients records in a very safe and confidential system with the use of EHR's. Hopefully over time, this issue will eventually be completely resolved. (MORE)
Ethics is extremely important in healthcare. This is true becauseit ensures that patients receive the best care possible andhealthcare employees follow standard procedures for every patient.
It will give health care to people that can not afford the insurance costs involved for starters. it should also lower the cost of insurance because they will need to compete with a free health care system. It could save more than 45,000 people who die each year in the US due to a lack of health… care insurance. See the link below to a Reuters news report from Sept. 2009 about a Harvard study that links one death every twelve minutes directly to the lack of health care insurance and quality health care. According to Reuters: The Harvard study, funded by a federal research grant, was published in the online edition of the American Journal of Public Health. It was released by Physicians for a National Health Program, which favors government-backed or "single-payer" health insurance. "We're losing more Americans every day because of inaction ... than drunk driving and homicide combined," Dr. David Himmelstein, a co-author of the study and an associate professor of medicine at Harvard, said in an interview with Reuters. .

Many ethical dilemmas arise in health care.

Another answer from our community: There are many moral and ethical issues which conflict withChristian beliefs and teachings surrounding the modern medicalworld, particularly with relation to genetic engineering: 1) Stem cell research - Is this "playing God?" 2) Is genetic engineering improper …in terms of human dignity? 3) Does interfering with the genome sacrifice some level ofhumanity? (Less human?) 4) Is it fair to create "saviour siblings" to improve the health ofanother child whilst effectively creating an unwanted life? (MORE)

Clinton had started on it. When Bush entered office it was neglected for 8 years. Now President Obama is trying to come up with a solution for the Health care issue. The issue is much more important now because the recession has caused people to lose their jobs AND their insurance.
Does the proposed action violate any fundamental ethical principles recognized as universal Military: If the action treats people differently, is there a legitimate reason for treating them differently
Anorexia brings up many ethical issues tied into the physicalproblems or issues that may arise, too. 1. A main one is that anorexia is very much a conscious "disease"or "disorder". Unlike bacterial or viral disease, or conditionssuch as cancer, or mental disorders like bipolar disorder, anorexiais v…ery much so controlled by the individual. They make conciousdecisions about how to eat, what to do, how to exercise, and so on.The only difference is that they often cannot tell them selves tomake the effort or decisions to stop. 2. This brings up the problem, though, of how do you treat someonewho is chosing to inflict themselves with these problems. Doing soby force would be unethical and inhumane, yet it cannot often bedone by choice. 3. There is also the ethical issue of when to treat and when not totreat. What really defines someone as "bad" or "severe"? Whenshould treatment take place? What kind of treatment should happen?(though there are medical objective criteria as to when someone ismalnourished and should be hospitalized e.g. low temperature, lowHR, low BP, very very low weight, electrolyte abnormalities) There are so many different grades of the disorder that there is noone real method of treatment or care, and this can bring upproblems of who is deciding on treatment plans, if they have thebest interest of the patient in mind, and what qualifies them tosuggest or enact these specific methods of treatment over othermethods.

There are a lot of discourse and ethical issues to do with digging for gold because some environmental scientist believe it is destroying the environment, it is damaging the habitat of animals which potentially endangers animals.
Areas with higher concentrations of people and higher populations in general tend to have more available health care resources and facilities, more doctors and nurses with more training and experience, and are closer to the communities they serve. Rural areas tend to have less hospitals and more sm…all clinics with less equipment and less staff. It can often take longer for people to reach services or vice versa. As a result, people in the largest cities like New York, San Francisco, LA, and Seattle tend to have rapid access to world-class healthcare and surgery, whereas the quality of healthcare available in smaller and less affluent cities like Detroit Michigan or Toledo Ohio tend to have less available in many cases. Rural healthcare can be more fragmented and hit or miss. This said, it is still possible to get excellent healthcare from the country doctor or the public health nurse... but it really depends on the situation. There are some excellent rural clinics out there but if you had a stroke you might rather be at UCLA to get it managed. (MORE)
No I think it's a human issue. Ethics usually means putting a judgment on it, for what is right and correct etc and no one is that. Falling in love as a teen is about emotions and hormones and growing up is about making mistakes. The parents have to be there and the school to educate so they don't m…ake a mistake. If anything is about ethicts and morals is the parents and adults duty to give the correct informations and work on their relationship with their kids so the kids feel they can talk to their parents about these things without feeling judged.

Ethics is dependant on which tribe or group you are a member of. Few are universal. Education would reflect those ethics. To teach the truth as seen by your group. To explain how your society works. These are types of ethical issues taught.
Medical coding involves identifying all medical conditions usingspecific codes. It affects healthcare because these codes must becorrect or errors in treatment may result. Also, insurancecompanies pay based on these codes, so if they are wrong insurancemay not pay.
- Production involves the use of mice . These mice are usedto produce both antibodies and tumour cells. The production oftumour cells involves deliberately inducing cancer in mice. Despitespecific guidelines drawn up to minimise any suffering, some peoplestill have reservations about using animals …in this way. - To eliminate the need for humanisation of the antibody,transgenic mice can be used. In this case, a human gene is placedin the mice to that they can produce human antibodies rather thanmouse antibodies. This raises the whole debate surrounding theethics of genetic engineering . - Monoclonal antibodies have been used successfully to treat anumber of diseases, including cancer and diabetes, saving manylives. There have also been some deaths associated with their usein the treatment of multiple sclerosis. - Testing for the safety of new drugs presents certaindangers. In march 2006, six healthy volunteers took part in thetrial of new monoclonal antibody (TGN1412) in London. Withinminutes they suffered multiple organ failure, probably as a resultof T cells overproducing chemicals that stimulate an immuneresponse or attacking the body tissues. All the volunteerssurvived, but it raises issues about the conduct of drug trials. (MORE)
Ethical issues raised by information processing in business include confidentiality of data, software piracy, hacking, and stealing the property of others.
Most who don't know about lactation and breastfeeding and such think that milking a cow is synonymous with torture and distress, which couldn't be farther from the truth. However, a lot of people are concerned with how calves are taken away from their mommas a day or two after they are born so th…at the milk can be fed to humans. These people say (and they are right) that this goes against Mother Nature, that the calves should stay on the cow until they are big and old enough to be weaned, and the milk should be reserved for the calves, not for humans. In Nature, adult wild animals don't drink milk they drink water, so why are humans going against this? The other concern is the way cows are treated, as they are fed corn (an unnatural diet for cattle), and kept tied up in a stall all day with no much room to move around. Dairy cows are bred to produce milk and hormones are injected or mixed in with the feed so that they produce more milk for the farmer to sell. Cows, being milked "all the time" (they're only milked for 10 months of the year, actually), break down much sooner than beef cows do and have to be sent to slaughter by the time the are around 5 to 6 years of age. Many people think that farmers are only in it for the money and don't care about the animals, but this really isn't true. If dairy cows were tortured and mistreated, they wouldn't be giving much milk. (MORE)
Some people, including some extremist Christians/Jews, believe that it is wrong for people of the same sex to have loving and lustful feelings for each other. The only religious group I am able to speak for on this topic is Christianity. As a Christian woman in a lesbian relationship, I will face a …lot of controversy during my life with my girlfriend. Some Christians, going back to the Bible, quote that God found it unacceptable for same sex relations to take place, because it is lustful and wrong. Furthermore, God created woman for man and man for woman, not woman for woman or man for man, in the book of Genesis. A Christian many also say that a primary purpose of marriage is procreation, which cannot take place naturally in a gay marriage. Others will oppose this, saying that God only condemns same sex physical relations if they are based on lust not love, and that the story of Creation is symbolic rather than true. For many people, marriage is more about love and mutual trust than about starting a family, and so they would say that gay marriage is not an issue. For those who have no specific faith but are still homophobic, I can only suggest the following reasoning: - They feel it is unnatural; body parts etc. are not right together. - They feel that it is not right for people of the same sex to feel that way for each other; they cannot empathise with this feeling and so do not understand it. - They do not want to address the issue because of long lasting social belief that it is immoral. This social belief has its roots in a previously Christian-dominated society where people were unable to express their opinions. I would like to stress that it is only certain Christians who feel this way, and that the general Christian belief is unclear. The past of Christianity was much stricter than the present. (MORE)

Some women complain that having breast implants make self-examinations harder to accomplish. Another ethical issue would be that implants are not considered "therapeutic", therefore would be simple for aesthetics.
Probability distribution is when all the possible outcomes of a random variation are gathered together and the probability of each outcome is figured out. There are several ethical issues with this one being that it is not always accurate information that is gathered.
