1.) Physicians and the Budget
You are the hospital CEO. Physicians on the capital budget committee can’t agree on which equipment to recommend for purchase and for how much. They are way over budget. What do you say to them?
2.) What could the church or Christians, in general, do to help ensure that all Americans had access to healthcare? Should the church become more involved in healthcare delivery?
3.) Why is the emergency department used for primary care services and non-urgent conditions? What are the consequences of this usage?
4.) After reading the information on Bioterrorism preparedness, discuss what you might do to prepare yourself and your family for such a disaster. With the recent Ebola problem in Dallas, this a very real potential problem for our society.
5.) You have been asked to review the Ebola crisis at Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, Texas. What do you think administrators could have done to have been better prepared for this crisis? One of the nurses who was injured is now sueing the facility because of her problems related to contracting the disease. Is she right to do so? Why or why not?
