The purpose of this assignment is to understand how ethics and the law affect a variety of health care professions. The ethical code for each profession demands a high level of honesty, integrity, and responsibility. Professional behavior facilitates the resolution of ethical dilemmas, and each health care professional should have access to the board’s code of ethics regulating the specific profession. Personal behavior should be maintained at its highest standards, and health care professionals should comply with all governmental rules and regulations.

- Compare prevailing ethical codes and principles.
- Apply ethical codes and principles to health care situations.
