JCAHO mandates that institutions address ethical issues related to patient care and requires that health professionals be educated about ethics…

This introductory DVD outlines and explains key ethics terms that will give care providers an informed, values-based framework from which to resolve conflicts and make respectful decisions that reflect the best interests of the resident. The DVD covers the ‘Do No Harm’ principle of care, the American Nurses Association code of ethics, and outlines the basics of ethical decision-making for caregivers.

The DVD also discusses:

  • Cultural sensitivity
  • HIPAA principles, such as respecting privacy and confidentiality
  • Fair and equitable treatment
  • Distributive justice
  • Preventing emotional harm

These resident-care principles will equip new and veteran caregivers to interact and communicate ethically with residents while providing comfort-based, respectful care.
