Homework Help: Health Ethics

Posted by Linda on Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 12:50pm.

I need help with the following scenario to get started on a project. I am totally lost. Please HELP!

One of the patient care aides has complained to her manager that the Chief Medical Officer of the hospital has been following her around, making lewd comments, and trying to grab her. The manager is intimidated by the Medical Officer and ignores the complaint. The aide complains again and her manager demotes her to the night shift even though she has seniority over others in the area. The patient care aide goes to the EEOC and files a complaint of sexual harassment and retaliation. Three of her coworkers speak out on her behalf during the EEOC investigation process. When the manager finds out that they have spoken against the medical officer, she terminates the employees. One of the three coworkers also complained of harassment by the Medical Officer but had not filed an EEOC complaint. The hospital EEO officer comes to you as the executive administrator and asks you what to do.
Can you help me get started with the following questions:
1-Describe the situation
2-Identify and explain the law that applies to the situation.
