The basic rights of human beings, such as concern for personal dignity, are always of great importance. During illness, however, these rights are extremely vital and must be protected. Therefore, healthcare providers should make an effort to assure that these rights are preserved for their patients. Likewise, health care providers have the right to expect reasonable and responsible behavior on the part of our patients, their relatives, and friends. This is where the patient's bill of rights comes into play. The Patient's Bill of Rights was first adopted by the American Hospital Association (AHA) in 1973 and revised in October 1992. Patient rights were developed with the expectation that it would contribute to more effective patient care. It aids the patients and their families to understand their rights and responsibilities (Edge et al, 1998). In theory, once one understood the right, one should be able to reason out the correlative obligations. Below are two obligations to each of the items found in the patient's bill of rights. Respect and Dignity. 1. Respect the dignity of the patient by being considerate and caring 2. Do not discriminate based on sex, race or religion, etc. Identity 1. Hospital staff should wear name badges to identify themselves. 2. Staff members should introduce themselves to you and describe their roles before care is given. Participation in Treatment Decisions 1. Provide the patients with their treatment option 2. Allow the patient to participate in the treatment options available Advanced Directive 1. Advice patients of their rights to make informed medical choices, ask if the patient has an advance directive. 2. Honor the wishes of the patient as stated in his/her directive as permitted by law and hospital policy. Privacy 1. Do not disclose information about the patient's case to others without first obtaining written consent. 2. Avoid discussions about patients in public areas such as

The Bartling case was about whether William Bartling had the right, over the objection of his physicians and the hospital, to have life-support equipment disconnected despite the fact that withdrawal of such devices will surely hasten his death.

At the end, He had to use mechanical respiratory….
1. Should all world citizens have free (no cost) access to basic health care, or should nations have the right to limit access to health care based on their societal values and goals?
