Health Law and Regulations
Overview
This paper discusses the design of regulation agencies and the roles that they play in health care. There will also be a discussion on the current laws that health care face today, and an analysis on how these laws affect the hospital, clinic or insurer. This paper also includes how the population has little access to health care and an understanding of how HIPPA works and the role that it plays in the health care field.
Healthcare
The purpose of regulations is the constant need to balance the objectives of enhancing the quality, expanding access, and controlling costs in healthcare.
Regulation plays a major role in the healthcare industry and healthcare insurance coverage. Through various regulatory bodies, the Department of Health and Human
Services (HHS) protects the public from a number of health risks and provides programs for public health and welfare. Together, these regulatory agencies protect and regulate public health at every level ( Fierce Healthcare, 2014, para. 1).
When it comes to health care there are many agencies that play a role in the management of the health care industry such as, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) which deals with most of the regulations that deal directly to the healthcare system, they also “provides government subsidized medical coverage through a number of programs: Medicare, Medicaid, and State Children’s Health Insurance program (SCHIP)” (Fierce Healthcare, 2014, para. 2). Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) as we know is a major part of the regulation, this agency improves efficiency and effectiveness in the healthcare field; HIPAA protects the privacy and security of patient information. Another agency is Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), this agency falls under HHS and its purpose is to improving the quality of healthcare,…...

...that, “A manager’s decision to disclose or withhold information depends upon the effect of that decision on the price of a risky asset.” He proved that if the information’s potential impact is below a threshold, it will not be released to the public by managers. Another study conducted by Einhorm (2005) reported that the voluntary disclosure depends crucially on the quality of mandated disclosure requirement. These studies provide the theoretical evidence that not all the information is publicly available to investors. All in all, from the regulatory body’s point of view, the market should not be trust but also need to be monitored. Securities exchange act of 1934, Sec. 2.

... violation of Section 5 of the 1933 SEC Act(which governs sales of securities through interstate commerce) e.g. issued a security that was required to be registered and was not. 3. Section 12 (a) (2)(anti-fraud provision) creates liability for any person who offers or sells a security through a prospectus or an oral communication containing a material misstatement or omission, is liable to the purchaser for rescission of the purchase or damages, provided that the purchaser did not know about the misstatement or omission at the time of the purchase.  Court holdings imply that the cause of action only applies to purchasers in the initial offering, not secondary purchases, but this is not settled law yet. Investors suing under 12(a)(2) can only recover from sellers. 4. Section 17(a) (anti-fraud provision) Broad prohibition against fraud. is a key anti-fraud provision in the Securities Act.  It provides for liability for fraudulent sales of securities.  Some courts have found an implied right of private action under this provision, though this is becoming a less favored position. However, some courts continue to accept private suits under this provision.  Section 17(a) makes it unlawful to "employ any device, scheme, or artifice to defraud", "obtain money or property" by using material misstatements or omissions, or to "engage in any transaction, practice, or course of business which operates or would operate as a fraud or......

...employer has a legal duty to support disability in the workplace. Dismissal because of a disability may be unlawful discrimination. Redundancy Redundancy is a form of dismissal and is fair in most cases. If the reason you are selected for redundancy is unfair then you will have been unfairly dismissed. Summary dismissal You can be dismissed for ‘gross misconduct’ without your employer going through the normal disciplinary procedures. This can happen if, for example, you’re violent towards a colleague, customer or property. Your employer should always investigate the circumstances before making a dismissal, even in possible gross misconduct cases. A ‘statutory restriction’ You can be dismissed if continuing to employ you would break the law - eg if you’re a driver in a lorry firm and you lose your driving licence. It’s impossible to carry on employing you If it’s impossible to carry on employing you, it’s likely to be fair. For example, if a factory burns down and it’s no longer possible to employ anyone. A ‘substantial reason’ You may be dismissed fairly if, for example: • you unreasonably refuse to accept a company reorganisation that changes your employment terms • you’re sent to prison What to do if you're dismissed If you’re threatened with dismissal (or are dismissed) you can get help from a third party to solve the issue by mediation, conciliation and arbitration. You can also speak to your union representative if you’re a member of a trade......

...inform a motorist at the end of a traffic stop that they are free to go before seeking permission to search the motorist’s car (Wikipedia 2011). In the case, respondent Robert D. Robinette was stopped for speeding by Deputy Roger Newsome of the Montgomery County Sheriff Office, since he had no prior violation; the officer gave him a verbal warning and returned his driver’s license(Cornell University Law School 1996). Shortly After, the deputy asked Robinette, before he gets going whether he was carrying any illegal contraband, weapons, drug’s, or such things in his car. That’s when Robinette answered that he did not have any of those things in his car. Then the deputy asked him if he would let him search the car for such things and Robinette gave consent to a search of the car. At the same time Robinette, felt like he had to let the officer search the car because he did not know that he could have simply said no and been free to go. Robinette, along with many other citizens feel that they do not have a choice in denying a request by a police officer. They are not familiar with the laws and rights that they have, especially during a routine traffic stop. There was no probable cause that gave the officer reason to search the vehicle. In the search, Deputy Newsome found a small amount of marijuana and a tablet of ecstasy, that turned out to be methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) (Google Scholar 2011).Robinette was arrested and charged with knowing possession of a controlled......

The next section will identify the similarities and differences in private and public law cases by comparing and contrasting case law. The current regulatory legal framework for contact issues in the public and private law context will be discussed by evaluating how the children’s views are considered. Further in the section the children’s representation in the public and private law arena will be touched on considering the United Nations Convention on Rights of the Child 1990 (UNCRC 1990), implications of the Human Rights Act 1998 (HRA 1998), and the incorporation of the of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) bearing in mind that the Children Act was outlined with a consideration to the convention.

CONCLUSION: Yes, although a former employee may use general knowledge, skills, and experience acquired during the prior employment in competing with a former employer, the employee may not use or disclose trade secrets belonging to the former employer to actively solicit customers from a confidential customer list, whether written or memorized.   Wal- Mart Stores, Inc. v.

...In this documentary, it basically explains why one shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. The condition these orcas were living in, and the way they were being treated proves it all. From watching the film, they’re argument seems pretty much believable. The tear-jerking scenes really emphasized the purpose. Yes, Tilikum was the cause of Dawn Brancheau’s death, but what caused Tilikum to react this way? The documentary shows that many mistakes were made with orcas from the very beginning to cause the orcas to react with such aggression. The former trainers from Sea World had very close relationships with the orcas. The clips of how friendly and kind the orcas were supports the film makers’ claim. One of the former trainers said, “It was like a relationship he had never had.” I could feel the anger and ___ in the film makers’ tone by how they throw the blame on Sea World. Being that these whale are complex mammals with enhanced social skill, and are huge; small captivity is not the best way to get positive reactions out of them. The accommodations for the whales were unfit for a healthy life style. Most whales at Sea world began to have drooped dorsal fins. There many false facts given to the public about the killer whales: “More than twenty-five percent of all killer whales have drooped dorsal fins as the get older,” or “Killer whales actually live longer in Sea World’s environment because of veterinarian care.” All of that was......

...Starling’s Law of the Capillaries Starling’s law of the capillaries states that the movement of fluid between the capillaries and interstitial fluid is due to the net effect of all four of the pressures described. An equation can be used to calculate the NFP and determine the direction of the fluid movement. NFP = (BHP + IFCOP) – (BCOP + IFHP) (Equation 6) BHP and IFCOP promote the movement of fluid out of the capillaries or filtration. BCOP and IFHP promote the movement of fluid into the capillaries or reabsorption. If the pressures that promote filtration are greater than the pressures that promote reabsorption, the NFP will have a positive value. If the pressures that promote reabsorption are greater, the NFP will have a negative value. Under normal physiological conditions, the values of IFHP, BCOP, and IFCOP do not significantly vary from the arterial end of the capillaries to the venous end. Therefore, in most tissues, the rate of filtration and reabsorption is due to BHP. To demonstrate, assume the following pressures at the arterial end of a capillary network: BHP = 35 mmHg IFHP = 0 mmHg BCOP = 26 mmHg IFCOP = 1 mmHg NFP = (35 mmHg + 1 mmHg) – (26 mmHg + 0 mmHg) NFP = +10 mmHg Because the value of NFP is positive, filtration occurs at the arterial end of the capillary. Moving along the capillary, the BHP becomes lower as blood moves along the pressure gradient of the vascular system, but the other three pressures will not fluctuate. At about the......

...the first two laws of the Nuremberg Laws were enacted. The laws were a clear violation of the Jewish people's civil rights. Many of the laws imposed on the freedom of the Jewish people. These laws were enacted by a cold and cruel dictator by the name of Adolf Hitler. The Nuremberg laws were a very strict and immoral set of laws that discriminated against the Jewish people. Above all, the laws were offensive and demeaning. Adolf Hitler was born April 20, 1889 and would eventually become a terrible dictator. He wanted to go into art school, but was rejected. The person who rejected him was Jewish, and some believe that was where his hatred toward the Jewish people came from. Hitler rose to power by being elected, he did not take control by force, he was elected by the German people. Once he had control of the government, he passed the enabling act, which enabled him to make and pass any law on his own; he did not need the approval of the rest of the government.(Palma) This is what permitted the passing of the Nuremberg Laws. After passing the laws, he focused his hatred on the Jewish people and would go on to kill millions of Jews. You were considered to be Jewish if you had three grandparents who were Jewish. If you only had two, you were considered mischling of the first degree. If you had only one, you were mischling of the second degree. There were however, other ways of classifying you as Jewish. If you were a part of a Jewish church when the Nuremberg Laws were......
