Criminal and Civil Law & Decision Making

Case Study: Death with Dignity

  1. In your opinion, what is the biggest challenge with this situation for the leader of this facility?
  2. If you were the decision maker, the Administrator, that will ultimately be held responsible by regulatory agencies for any decisions made and the ultimate outcome of this situation, what actions do you think you would you take and why?  Who would you consult? What actions would you not take and why? Be sure to consider how your own personal beliefs and life experiences have potential to impact your actions, decisions, facility policies and interaction with residents/families.
