Just like food, clothing, shelter, clean water and clean air, health is a basic need to all human beings across the world. Being a very sensitive department and just like other civil workers, the practitioners working in this field work under very strict code of ethics to protect the rights of the consumers while offering them the best services. Failure to adhere to the code of conduct may have severe consequences on both the employee and the entire health facility.
The service providers should ensure maximum solitude a discretion of the patient’s personal information. The office in charge of the patient personal data files should have a restriction entry for unauthorized persons to prevent access of the data by other people. Preventive measures have to be put in place to maximize the security of the files. A client has the right to sue any health facility that does not respect this right.
The personnel working in the health sector should also be trained to implement and maintain the professional standards of the medical sector. The standards may include being accurate in their duties and task performance as well as effective time management. Dealing with a human life calls for zero errors or negligence since it might cause further injuries as well as death in the extreme cases. Mosts tasks in medical practice rely on the time. Failure to comply with the code of conduct at the workplace comes with great consequences as well as a poor corporate image of the facility among the customers and the entire business market.
Due to the changes that occur on a daily basis, the health practitioners should also improve their education skills. The frequent training help the workers to learn how to use any facility that is available in the market with so much ease and expertise.
The storage systems used in client files should be acceptable by the code of conduct. All patient documents should be well kept and provided on demand at any time required. The data should be documented according to the set program be availed to the client anytime some clarification needs to be done.
The hospital bills made should be reliable and honest. The billing system should follow all the principles and values of the financial integrity.
Communcations should always be done at the right time to give the patients time to think about the data and prepare to take the right action. The patients have a right to being informed on any relevant issue at the right time, and in case anything important has to be communicated the clients should be told in advance.
Working by the code of conduct saves a lot for both the health facility and the worker as well.
