This module’s focus is on the Legal System, but in our examination of ethics, it’s important to pay attention to how unethical practices impact the law. Conduct some independent research on some newsworthy unethical practices in healthcare. Use those fact-based accounts as your basis for this assignment.
For this module’s assignment, write a 2-3 page fictional account about someone who committed an unethical act that threatened their healthcare practice. Your focus is on the internal struggle that took place within that person as well as the effect that the unethical action had on his or her career and the law. Be sure to cite any outside research sources and proofread your work prior to its submission.
