Deliverable Length: 1-2 pages

Details: Many of the staff members seem to be confused or conflicted about how to cut costs yet still provide high-quality care. You think that it would be helpful to clarify this issue in a staff in-service, particularly with regard to how to minimize the impact of budget cuts on patient care. Identify three ethical dilemmas that are likely to occur when trying to balance quality care with cost-containment. How would you suggest they resolve these conflicts? Be sure to refer to cases where ethics were compromised to the detriment of the patients and the organization. Cite your references using APA guidelines.
