Ethics at Work Heritage Valley Hospital

Dear OTA,

I am doing a project on "Heritage Valley Hospital" located in Sewickley PA on ethical behaviors and fundamental changes in the hospital organization. I think the ethical policy is within the website. I need 3 or 4 pages answering the following questions. Can you assist.

Identified and analyzed an ethical case in the organization within the working hospital environment.

Analyzed whether or not the organization has a reliable system in place to handle ethical issues.

Analyzed and discussed whether the organization encourages people to come forward when they notice discrepancies between the organization's policy and practice.

Analyzed the way the situation is handled when people point out discrepancies between the organization's policy and practice.

Analyzed and discussed if people are rewarded and respected for taking a stand.

Analyzed and discussed the recommendations for a basic approach to ethical problem solving for issues arising at work, in case the organization does not encourage disclosing problems when they arise.

Used correct spelling, grammar, and professional vocabulary. Cited all sources/ intext citations using APA format.

Thank you so much
