INTRODUCTIONLaw, Ethics and Polices is the language of legislation which tells describes the role andresponsibility of any individual. It is one of those department which is very meaningful in thefield of healthcare because it ensures that what practician can do while practising in any of thehealthcare centre. In context of this report, the discussion in Part A is all about legislation,executive and Judiciary for health care. Where as in Part B the discussion will be done bypreparing the observation logs, activity log and reflective log.PART ALO1 Explain the legal framework within which health and social care practitioners Scenario.Given Scenario:It is given that Mid-Staffordshire NHS Trust was unable to provide theservice to the patient. The default was found when it was seen that 2500 patient died just becauseof the standard of care which they didn't provide to the patient and this incident took placebetween 2005-2008. While cross verification had taken the place, it was found that healthpractitioner had done lots of compromises with the health of patient.Legislation to Healthcare:It is said that legislation has the main importance in each andevery department because it will decide that how any work is required to be done. In simpleterm, Legislation is set of law which are enforced as per the requirement of situation and it iscompulsory that no one is allowed to breach the term and condition of law as defaulter has toface various kinds of punishment in this situation. Legislation have divided into many sectionwhere it is written that which department will commence law what kind of law (Banks, 2016). Inpresent scenario, it is important for Legislation to look after all the section through whichchances of default will be reduced in future. Some of the act which has been introduced for thebenefits of patient are National Health Service Act, 2006, medical act 1858 etc. and many more.In context of the case, it can be understood that there was the default Mid-Staffordshire NHSTrust because they were the one who didn't tried to provide the best services to the patient andbecause of that many of the patient have to lost their life. After seeing this incident, it isimportant that legislation should commence those form of law due to which it will easy to findthe defaulter person due to whom anyone have to suffer from their life. It is very crucial forpractitioner to understand the language of law because they are required to work as per the act.Here, role of government will be very important because they have to understand in detail that1
there are lots of area where still new law should be commenced and that must be commenced forpractitioner. They must try to introduce those program in healthcare centre from which chancesof default will be reduced (Bywaters and et. al., 2015).Governmentof UKneed to amended some of laws which are related with the healthcareand those must be done specially in medical act 1858 because there are lots of instances wheredue to patient has to suffer from various kind of problem and reason behind that is level ofmanufacturing in medicine. Some of those strict law should be commenced where practitionershould be made liable for the issues which come across them. In the above case, it was found thatNHS didn't tried to treat well to their patient and this problem continues for near around 3 yearsso it is important for government to check that what are the weak points due to which healthcarecentre are unable to provide the best services to their patient. Changes can be done but it will bemore effective if they are done only after the proper research because it helps to produce moreeffective results in future. The incidence which had been occurred by the side of NHS was one ofthose lesson for UK government which made them aware regarding the health of patient andbecause of that change were done in Human Rights Act, 1998 also where it is clearly writtenthen everyone has the equal rights when it comes to obtain the health of patient. Also,government is always try to come up new which are beneficial for every patient.Executive on Healthcare:They are the persons who take care of each and everythingwhich is required in the premises of hospital so it can be understood that it will be very tomanage every single thing within the organisation (Congress, 2017). It should be mandatory thatevery responsibility should be given to executive and even if any kind of default is done then it isnecessary that actions should be taken against that respective executive. In context of the case, itwas found that there was no one who was ready to take the responsibilities for the death of 2500patient so by looking at this problem government had done lots of changes in their law systemwhich is effective for the better results.In this, government had decided that executive should take the responsibilities and musttry to work as per the guidelines of law. So, in every healthcare executive must ensure thatpractitioners are working as per the law and because of that carelessness in the health of patienthas been reduced in significant manner. Even it can be said easily that the main reason behindthe death of 2500 patient was the executive of NHS trust. So, in upcoming days it will important2
