Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Hi, this is my final project which includes the previous Milestones One and Two. The section that needs to be completed on the rubric is the Recommendation/Conclusion section. Recommendations: In this section, you will utilize the knowledge you gained from your malpractice and ethical analyses to recommend and defend
strategies that would help improve medical practices and avoid future liability.
A. Recommend preventative strategies the healthcare provider could implement to avoid liability in the future.
B. Defend how your recommended preventative strategies would assist the healthcare provider in avoiding liability and providing a safe, quality
healthcare experience for the patient. I will upload the rubric along with the final project paper which you will add the Conclusion/Recommendation section. Also, I highlighted two sections of the paper that needs to be condensed and revised per my professor’s feedback. Here’s what needs to be done in the sections.
Medical Practice Legal Components Section: This case actually doesn’t involve res ipsa. Res ipsa is a very complex legal doctrine that actually only applies in a limited number of cases. You’ve also somewhat misdescribed res ipsa as “the common law of tort.” Res ipsa is a common law argument but is not the entirety of the common law. I’ll leave it at this: res ipsa doesn’t apply here because it is really, really complicated! (Most first year law students don’t get it, either, so don’t worry!)
In any case, after that, you begin your analysis of the four elements of negligence which is correct! Those four elements — duty, breach, causation, and harm — are the legal components of a negligence case.
Duty refers to a relationship. That is, was there a relationship between the plaintiff and the defendant such that the defendant should have taken care of, or avoided harm to, the plaintiff. Here, that’s satisfied by virtue of the doctor-patient relationship.
In the Cultural Backgroud Section, the first part of this paragraph is a little vague and it is unclear how it specifically applies to this case. But, the second half gets stronger when you discuss communication. Focus on communication because there’s evidence of the role of communication in this case. Elaborate on this a bit using the literature. Why is this communication barrier a problem? Was Arturo provided an interpreter? Should he have been?
The Accountability Section can be condensed considerably (and save some space). You just need the verdict, damages, and apportionment of blame. It could be done in about two sentences! Overall everything is good but there’s a very tight page limit on the final project. You’ll need to do some condensing to fit within that limit. Work on reducing unnecessary information and reducing any wordiness. It is a tough task, but it is part of the challenge of the assignment! The total pages of the Final Project right now is 9 but can be condensed to 7. So to sum it will add the Conclusion/Recommendation Section on one page and revise and condense the highlighted sections on the uploaded paper. Also, add the reference page. I will also upload Milestone One and Two so you can do this. Thanks.
