All human beings have a right to basic needs which entails proper meals, clean water for consumption, air and access to proper healthcare. The health sector just like any other field of service has the set rules and regulations which their employees must follow when giving service to the patients. Failure to adhere to the code of conduct may have severe consequences on both the employee and the entire health facility.
The patients sensitive information should only be accessed by authorized persons and the patient themselves. All the data about the patients should be kept a secret and never be revealed to any person except the ones in charge of the patients’ files. The files with personal patient data should be kept in places that are highly secure. 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 human life calls for extra care and concentration to avoid making faults and errors that can be avoided with just a little more care. 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.
The world keeps changing constantly and so should the medics keep enhancing their expertise. The continuous improvement of the skills helps to enhance their proficiency as well as to equip them with the familiarity on the use and functionality of the latest medical machinery in the market.
The storage systems used in client files should be acceptable by the code of conduct. Patients have a right to accessibility of their documents at any time and demand clarification where they do not understand any details. Documentation should be one in accordance with the set rules and regulations.
The hospital bills made should be reliable and honest. Hospitals should be honest about the rates they charge the patients for services offered.
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.
