Discussion Board HSCI
In the Week 7 readings, employee rights and responsibilities are discussed. One item briefly mentioned is the OSHA Whistleblower Protection Program. Do some research and see if you can find any current literature about whistleblowing activities as reported by healthcare professionals. Summarize and/or share the information you find. A good place to start is the United States Department of Labor Whistleblower.gov site. Demotion, intimidation, reassignment, and other punitive actions are prevented by the OSHA Whistleblower Protection Program.
Discuss what you discover about the OSHA Whistleblower Protection Program and also any potential negative impact for healthcare professional(s) when reporting unethical practices.
