Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    It is unethical to charge the patient for a missed appointment?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Charging a patient for a missed appointment can be seen as unethical because it may create a financial burden for the patient and deter them from seeking necessary medical care in the future. Additionally, there could be valid reasons for missing an appointment, such as emergencies or unforeseen circumstances, which should be taken into consideration. Therefore, it is generally considered more ethical to have a policy that allows for reasonable flexibility in rescheduling missed appointments without imposing financial penalties on the patient.

  • 2. 

    It could be a violation of the insurance policy for the medical office to waive the co-payment?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Waiving the co-payment in a medical office could potentially be a violation of the insurance policy. Co-payments are typically required by insurance companies as a way to share the cost of healthcare services with the patient. By waiving the co-payment, the medical office may be circumventing this requirement and potentially violating the terms of the insurance policy. This could result in penalties or other consequences for the medical office. Therefore, the statement that it could be a violation of the insurance policy for the medical office to waive the co-payment is true.

  • 3. 

    Organ donation is considered an ethical issue?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Organ donation is considered an ethical issue because it involves making a decision about the use of one's own body or the body of a deceased loved one. It raises questions about autonomy, consent, and the moral obligation to save lives. Ethical considerations also arise regarding the fair distribution of organs, ensuring that the process is transparent and equitable. Additionally, ethical concerns may arise when considering the potential exploitation of vulnerable individuals or the potential for organ trafficking. Therefore, the statement "Organ donation is considered an ethical issue" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    It is up to the physician'sown primary care doctor to make sure they are healthy?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it is not the responsibility of a physician's primary care doctor to ensure their own health. A primary care doctor is responsible for providing healthcare services to their patients, not themselves. Physicians, like any other individuals, need to take personal responsibility for their own health by seeking medical care when needed and following appropriate preventive measures.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The physician will decide what is ethical?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "The physician will decide what is ethical" is false. Ethical decisions in healthcare are typically made through a collaborative process involving multiple stakeholders, including the physician, patient, and other healthcare professionals. The physician alone does not have the sole authority to determine what is ethical. Ethical decision-making in healthcare requires considering various factors, such as patient autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence, and justice.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    It is ethical practice for the pharmaceutical company to influence doctors to prescribe new drugs for the benefit of the patient?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not ethical for pharmaceutical companies to influence doctors to prescribe new drugs solely for the benefit of the patient. The decision to prescribe a particular drug should be based on the doctor's professional judgment, considering factors such as the patient's medical history, symptoms, and the available evidence on the drug's safety and efficacy. Pharmaceutical companies should provide accurate and unbiased information about their products, but they should not exert undue influence or pressure on doctors to prescribe their drugs. This practice can compromise patient safety and the integrity of medical decision-making.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What is Ethical Distress?

  • 8. 

    To charge excessive fees for a difficult procedure is considered ethical?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Charging excessive fees for a difficult procedure is not considered ethical because it takes advantage of patients who are in need of medical care. Ethical behavior in healthcare involves providing fair and reasonable pricing that reflects the value of the services provided, rather than exploiting patients for financial gain.

  • 12. 

    Fair distribution of insufficient medical benefits is a Dilemma of Justice.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the fair distribution of insufficient medical benefits is indeed a dilemma of justice. When there are limited resources or insufficient medical benefits available, it becomes a challenge to allocate them in a fair and equitable manner. This dilemma arises because there is a need to balance the principles of justice, fairness, and the best possible outcomes for all individuals involved. It requires careful decision-making and ethical considerations to ensure that the limited benefits are distributed in a way that maximizes fairness and minimizes harm.

  • 13. 

    A lawsuit can be filed prior to the statue of limitations but not after

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the statute of limitations sets a specific time limit within which a lawsuit can be filed. Once the statute of limitations has expired, the right to file a lawsuit is generally lost. However, it is possible to file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires, as long as it is within the allowed time frame. After the statute of limitations has passed, it is generally not possible to file a lawsuit, regardless of the circumstances.

  • 14. 

    In an emergency care can be given without consent to prevent loss of life or serious illness or injury

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In emergency situations, when there is a risk of loss of life or serious illness or injury, consent may not be feasible or possible to obtain immediately. In these cases, it is crucial to provide care promptly to prevent further harm or potential death. This principle is based on the ethical concept of beneficence, which prioritizes the well-being and safety of individuals in emergency situations. Therefore, it is true that care can be given without consent in emergencies.

  • 16. 

    Minors must be emancipated to give consent for themselves

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Minors must be emancipated to give consent for themselves. This means that individuals under the legal age of adulthood must be granted legal independence from their parents or guardians in order to make decisions and give consent on their own behalf. Without emancipation, minors generally do not have the legal capacity to provide consent for certain matters, such as medical treatments, contracts, or other legal agreements. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct as it accurately reflects the requirement for minors to be emancipated in order to give consent for themselves.
