Arbitration clause The purpose of this arbitration paper is written for arbitration meeting conducted on April 4th 2014 for the incident happened in February 15th. The incident of February 15th, Mr. Kevin Hyer; the registered nurse of Nittany Regional Medical Center, leaving his patient in gurney and refused to move his assigned patient as a result of “self-protection”, is carefully reviewed by assigned third party arbitrator. It is understood that any claim of medical malpractice, including any claims from Nittany Regional Medical center, arbitration party has carefully reviewed of legal laws and previous similar cases prior to binding this arbitration clause. The Arbitration party has concluded that suspension of Mr. Kevin Hyer was not fair, therefor we have come up with that suspension of Mr. Kevin Hyper shall be removed from his record and Nittany Regional Medical Center to pay his wages while he was suspended. The background of how we decide on our decision was: first, that we accepted that Mr. Kevin Hyer has his back problem and he has right to not participate on any kind of dangerous situation as his contract has stated. Therefor Arbitration party is rejecting that there was any kind of disciplinary action for Mr. Kevin Hyper to leave his patient on gurney. Second, we refused to accept any unfiled progressive discipline. All record including progressive discipline, should be kept in personal file for the arbitration party to look and examine on it. In this decision we took Union’s claim that Mr. Kevin Hyer’s supervisor nurse Mrs. Martinez has personal dislike upon Union and our arbitrator has confirmed it. Since the only witness, and also the one who gives Mr. Kevin Hyer unfiled progressive discipline was Mrs. Martinez, arbitration parties has decided not to take any credit for this situation. Third, we do understand Mr. Kevin Hyer frequently mention about his back is aching and refused to move patient but rather asked other

    Many natures of complaints occur throughout the health care workforce. Because of the dramatic changes in how health care is delivered over the past few years, consumer concerns about liability issues have increased. Patients put their physical health and trust in the hands of health care providers daily. Unfortunately, there have been periods when the treatment provided, has been accidental or intentional and caused physician harm to the patient. Patients who have experienced injury have the right to file a complaint against the healthcare provider. Sharing of personal information, negligence, or assault are included in possible reasons for civil complaints. Physicians and nurses are responsible for physicians and nurses making their patients feel comfortable and happy during their visits. Ethical duties of the nurse include ensuring their patients are mindful that their treatment is as equivalent to the care the next patient receives. Medical professional regulation boards or committees exist in all states. The issues that will be discussed are relevant to nursing, process of civil complaints, the role the regulatory agency has in the investigation of civil complaints, the determination of criminal liability and what processes are involved while filing criminal charges.

    This incident occurs between the jail physician and the nursing staff with direct communication related to patients seen over the weekend by the nursing staff. Each Monday morning the nurse gives a report on inmate patients that were seen by the nurse over the weekend. The nurse gives a detailed report to the physician on each patient including patient complaints, any testing or treatment given. Not every patient or situation is the same. Therefore, the nursing to physician reports differ significantly and tend to leave out the important detail, in which patients are not seen by the physician on Monday since the physician feels the patient can wait to be seen. There is ineffective communication here,…

    What is an Ambulatory Surgery Center? It is a medical facility which is designed in order for people to be able to have elective same-day surgeries rather than having to deal with the amount of traffic which most hospitals have. Since it is not a hospital, it does not have emergency care. A facility such as this would mean that a patient does not have to stay overnight as they would if admitted to a hospital. The patient is able to go home once the procedure is complete. This type of organization does have a lot of legal issues; and some of those legal issues will be read about in this paper; issues that deal with physician ownership, Medicare cases, and even out of network waivers. A surgical center takes a lot of endeavor in running a surgical center as well as learning what type of legal issues might be included when running this type of a center.…

    Arbitration

    • 13 Pages

    Arbitration, in its most basic form, is a form of mediation between two parties that have a dispute, often involving contracts. Not only does arbitration allow individuals and businesses to settle disagreements, it does so outside of the courtroom, alleviating the courtroom of traffic, thereby allowing time and resources for more pertinent cases. Often time’s parties in the midst of a dispute long for ‘their day in court’ but an increasing number of businesses have chosen to focus the matter in arbitration. The two parties have a hand in picking the mediator, a trained professional, and that mediator ultimately decides the outcome and, if applicable, the award. While the process of deciding on the arbitrator can be lengthy, it is intended to result in an unbiased third party impartial to either side.…

    Arbitration means “a neutral third party or panel of experts hears a dispute and imposes a resolution of the parties” (Miller & Jentz, 2008, p.50). However, both parties must sign and agree to the above statement for it to be acknowledged as a legal judgment. In the case of Thomas Baker and Osborne Development Corporation it gets a little bit more involved. For starters, Osborne Development purchased the home warranty program administered by Home Buyers Warranty and signed the agreement of arbitration with them. However, the agreement of submitting disputes to arbitration also involved home owner and not just the builder, warranty issuers and HBW. Consequently, I don’t think the homeowners should abide by the arbitration process since they never signed the agreement papers. Thus, Thomas Baker and others could possible take the case to court because there is an issue of arbitrability, “a dispute arises as to whether the parties have agreed in an arbitration clause to submit a particular matter to arbitration” (Miller & Jentz, 2008, p.51).…
