Code of Ethics

...Code of Ethics Paper A code of ethics is a document that serves as a foundation for the profession or health care specialty, providing ethical guidance. Nursing is a very reputable profession, and as a nurse, it is vital that I provide safe, compassionate, and competent nursing care. It is expected that all nurses carry out their responsibilities and tasks while respecting all patients’ rights and sensitivities. That is why it is so important that nursing care be guided by a code of ethics. For this paper, I have chosen to analyze and discuss the contents of the American Nurses Association’s Code of Ethics for Nurses, also referred to as The Code within the nursing profession. I will clarify the goals of The Code and identify ethical principles, including grievance procedures. I will then discuss my personal opinion of The Code, including recommendations for strengthening weak areas within the written code. Nurses Code of Ethics According to the American Nurses Association (2011), “The Code of Ethics for Nurses was developed as a guide for carrying out nursing responsibilities in a manner consistent with quality in nursing care and the ethical obligations of the profession” (para. 1). All nurses regardless of position or specialty practice nursing under this code. As health care changes and advances, nurses struggle with advanced and complicated ethical dilemmas. Nurses need the ethical support and guidance provided by The Code, and every nurse has an obligation to......

Code

..."The code of the streets is actually a cultural adaptation to a profound lack of faith in the police and the judicial system. The police are most often seen as representing the dominant white society and not caring to protect inner- city residents. When called, they may not respond, which is one reason many residents feel they must be prepared to take extraordinary measures to defend themselves and their loved ones against those who are inclined to aggression. Lack of police accountability has in fact been incorporated into the status system: the person who is believed capable of "taking care of himself" is accorded a certain deference, which translates into a sense of physical and psychological control. Thus the street code emerges where the influence of the police ends and personal responsibility for one's safety is felt to begin. Exacerbated by the proliferation of drugs and easy access to guns, this volatile situation results in the ability of the street oriented minority (or those who effectively "go for bad") to dominate the public spaces." (Anderson, Code of the Street). Anderson main argument in his research is that the behavior of many youths is influenced by the street culture or code. This “code” governs how youth from the inner city will react in a violent manor when faced with impersonal attacks or any show of disrespect. Through Anderson’s study he was able to give us the day to day struggle for some inner city children, and why they were unable to express......

Code of Conduct

...Cheesecake Factory Code of Conduct Professor Mandiveyi December 15, 2013 Introduction to Business Bus 100 Abstract This paper discusses key areas of interest within the Cheesecake Factory’s code of conduct, which will also identify the significant importance of the code of conduct and why it is important to the success of the Cheesecake Factory. This paper will also explain how the code of conduct can be implemented by the company, checks and balances to measure adherence to the code, and lastly, three ways the restaurant can engage in socially responsive activities in the community in which it operates. The Cheesecake Factory has a rather large code of conduct. There are a few specific ideas within the code of conduct that is of significant importance to the Cheesecake Factory’s business. It is imperative that this code of conduct is established because staff members must understand the Cheesecake Factory’s ethics and belief system in comparison to other organizations because it may differ with regards to cultural content, values, and ordering of beliefs (McShane & Von, 2005). The first significant idea in the code of conduct is conflict of interest. The company specifically states that an employee must avoid situations in which a conflict of interest would exist or have the appearance of a conflict of interest. This is extremely important to the business because it will prevent employees from having the appearance of giving preferential treatment to......

Anderson's the Code

...Describe the major elements of what Anderson calls “the code of the streets.” How does this “code” oppose mainstream values? The code is really only alive in the ghetto, while it may reach parts of the suburbs it is not as predominant as in the ghettos. At the core of the code is respect, the code was described as the framework for gaining respect on the street, along with respect is loyalty and honor. The respect is getting respect and not giving the respect to any person of authority, such as parent or a cop. The loyalty is given to your street family not necessarily to your real family or people of authority again and honor is very similiar to respect. These values are described as what one needs to know to survive on the streets. Survival on the street is the important thing, and obtaining respect is imperative even if it costs your life. Obtaining respect, loyalty or honor on the streets are obtained through very different means than if you were in the suburbs or growing up in a middle to upper class neighborhood. Not only the way these are obtained different but also they are different from the mainstream in who is the receipent of them. To obtain respect, loyalty or honor it is achieved through aggressive behavior not as you would if you grew up in a middle or upper class suburb. For example one would gain respect in the ghetto by stealing something coveted by another person and then displaying the theft proudly. These values are also obtained through......

Code of Ethics

...The code of ethics I decided to report on is for radiologic technologists found on the American Society of Radiologic Technologists website. I am studying to become a radiologist technician and this is the base and guidelines for my career. These guidelines make sure that everyone in this profession knows what is right and what is wrong in this line of work. A code of ethics also helps to set a standard for the business or company you are working for. Having a code of ethics for this field of work is very beneficial. As a radiologic technologist you are delivering patient care. It is very important to have an ethical behavior guideline when taking care of patients. Patients all have a professional standard they uphold when dealing with medical care. If employees don’t have a guideline of value-based principles or practices than the patient isn’t receiving their right to professional quality radiologic technology care. A code of ethics is also beneficial when it comes to legal aspects. Having a code of ethics for a company helps limit their legal liability from improper employee behavior. When researching the code of ethics for this career I didn’t find any weaknesses or problems with it. I believe code of ethics are pretty much beneficial all around. These guidelines provide employees to have professional and appropriate ethical behavior. The only way code of ethics could probably be seen as a weakness would be if it clashed with the moral opinions of the employee......

Code Switching

...Code Switching Code Switching, in terms of language, is the use of more than one language, by a person or more, during their conversations with each other. Code Switching is done simply because those persons know more than one language and have more than one language in common. This switch may last for a couple of sentences, for only a single phrase or may be only for a single word. It depends on how the persons take it with themselves and the others. In the article Code Switching it is written that “the switch is commonly made according to the subject of discourse, but may be for a variety of other reasons such as the mood of the speaker. For example, a person might only swear in French Language” ( 1 ). As described in the article Code Switching, there are number of situations why code switching occurs: A family that has recently immigrated to a country where a different language is spoken may switch back and forth between that language and their mother tongue, while they are learning the new language……...(this phenomenon is Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria)……………… Also, in countries with a large number of people from different ethnic backgrounds, communities will commonly switch between the language of their indigenous roots……….. code switching regularly happens between North American Mormon missionaries stationed overseas.”( 1 ) Because of the effectiveness of code switching it is widely used during our conversation. Code switching helps us to express......

Code of Ethics

...Code of Ethics One word: Enron. Most people that follow business know that corporation’s name. In November, 2001 the company admitted to using faulty accounting that had inflated income figures over a four year period of $586 million and a month later the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Maxwell, 2003, p. 1). Enron’s executives were not following a code of ethics designed to help protect against dishonest business practices and unethical principles. Following good common sense and treating others the way that you would want to be treated is good ethical behavior. Ethics, however, always comes down to being a personal choice and making the decision to do what is right, instead of what is wrong. A code of ethics can provide direction for a company on how the company plans to direct and implement its vision and the best way for the employees to help enable that vision. Most companies today post their code of ethics on their websites so consumers can see what they signify and stand up for as a business. Ethical Tone and Structure Costco is a business that many consumers are familiar with. They are a membership chain of warehouses that provide a wide array of merchandise, most of the time that merchandise is purchased in bulk quantities. Their code of ethics is pretty simple. “1. Obey the Law 2. Take Care of our Members 3. Take Care of our Employees 4. Respect our Suppliers 5. Reward our Shareholders” (Costco). Not to difficult and easily manageable. ...

Access the glossary (Master Glossary) to answer the following. a. What is the definition of “ordinary income” (loss) (740-270-20) Ordinary income (or loss) refers to income (or loss) from continuing operations before income taxes (or benefits) excluding significant unusual or infrequently occurring items. Extraordinary items, discontinued operations, and cumulative effects of changes in accounting principles are also excluded from this term. The term is not used in the income tax context of ordinary income versus capital gain. The meaning of unusual or infrequently occurring items is consistent with their use in the definition of the term extraordinary item. Ordinary income is income (or loss) exclusively from operations. Taxes expenses are not deducted. It does not include capital gains, or any other gain that could be infrequent or unusual. b. What is an error in previously issued financial statements? (250-10-20) An error in recognition, measurement, presentation, or disclosure in financial statements resulting from mathematical mistakes, mistakes in the application of generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), or oversight or misuse of facts that existed at the time the financial statements were prepared.
