First student to respond to: Emily Howard Organizational ethics helps individual employees understand the way an organization operates and why they make the decisions they make. This concept helps large employers, like hospitals, focus on what is most important. Healthcare generally focuses on patients, their safety, prevention of diseases, and management of illnesses. Having set organizational ethics helps set a tone across the facility about what is most important. Organizational ethics should be determined by stakeholders of the business. For the business to succeed the people funding that business need to be passionate about what the organization stands for as well as in agreement with their policies. My local hospital takes great strides to advance their organizational ethics and affect members of the community. Very often the hospital hosts blood drives where staff as well as community members can come together to help the cause. They also are expanding the the maternity unit and combining it with the NICU and children’s unit for a family birth and wellness center. This positively affects patients by enhancing medical care. 3. Second student to respond to: James Black The concept of organizational ethics is important in healthcare, as it sets the tone for the care of the patients in our care. Setting the ethics of purpose and function help to show all employees what the goals of the organization are, and how they aim to accomplish them. While the business climate can be difficult, Henry Silverman writes in Organizational Ethics in Healthcare Organizations: Proactively Managing the Ethical Climate to Ensure Organizational Integrity, that the “outcomes of of patient care are largely influenced by the organizational dynamics of the healthcare institution rather than individual professionalism.” (2000). If that is true, then an organizations ethics, goals and mission play a huge part in patient care, and is a crucial step for an organization and its management and founders to determine and set these vales, as they do elute down to all of its staff, and effects al of the patients the institution comes in contact with. On a personal level, I have always found myself working at institutions that share my values for patient care, and the treatment of patients, as I am not sure I could tolerate working in an organization that does not hold patients care, patient’s rights and their treatment the same as I do. While I can say I do look at the values prior to accepting any position, seeing the institution first had in how the values are carried out is another thing. I have not had any experience where the listed values to not align with the true treatment of patients, but I have heard experiences such as this, and am sure if I was in this situation, I would find another opportunity.
