conflict between two employees
conflict between employee and a patient

Review these 3 SCENARIOS and write at least 2 small sentences of respond for each Scenarios.
1 Public Duty Scenario Physicians
(Physicians The patient-physician relationship is essentially a contractual relationship. The physician is under no duty to treat (accept) a patient. Whether the patient can pay or not, and regardless of the patient’s medical condition, a physician is not legally obligated to treat. A Texas court asserted: Since it is unquestionably the law that the relationship of physician and patient is dependent upon contract, either expressed or implied, a physician is not to be held liable for arbitrarily refusing to respond to a call of a person even urgently in need of medical or surgical assistance provided that the relationship of physician and patient does not exist at the time the call is made or at the time the person presents himself for treatment. [Childs v. Weis, 440 S.W. 2nd 104 (Tex.Civ.App.1969)] It is assumed therefore, that a relationship exists between the physician and the patient, and that relationship is, from the beginning, a contractual and voluntary relationship. [Agnew v. Parks, 343 P.2d 118, 123 (Cal.App.1959)]. Once a contractual relationship is established, either expressed or implied, then the physician has a duty to perform and can be held liable for any failure or shortcomings on his or her part.
2 Public Duty Scenario Hospitals
Health care organizations now function under a series of statutory and court created laws that effectively prohibit the arbitrary refusal to admit and treat patients. A Delaware case applied common law to this question and found that a hospital has a duty to act reasonably in its patient selection decisions. The historical custom of hospitals to maintain open emergency rooms has influenced the development of case law. The courts have therefore build upon the concept of negligent termination of gratuitous services and maintain that hospitals should be responsible in cases of "unmistakable emergency" to stabilize patients prior to transferring them to another facility. [Wilmington General Hospital v. Manlove, 174 A.2d 135 (Del.1961). This case had its greatest impact on the duty to treat indigent emergency patients and little effect on the duty to treat insured patients. In a later case, [Payton v. Weaver, 182 Cal.Rptr. 225, 131 Cal.App.3d 38 (Cal.App.1d 1982)] the court suggested that where even private hospitals had a "quasi public" character, paying patients had a right of access and treatment. This was stated because hospitals have a unique and sometimes scarce service, that they receive funding from public sources, and have a tendency to enjoy monopoly status in a community. Further, federal regulations require hospitals that enjoy a tax-exempt status or received construction grants under the Hill-Burton Act to treat all community patients. Institutions that receive Medicare and Medicaid funding are prohibited from discrimination.
