This week’s discussion was on building model ethical codes. When I was in the Air Force as an organization we had the model of “Integrity First, Service above Self, and Excellence in all We Do” This was a guiding principal. In the medical community hospitals have an ethics committee to help guide and develop principals. Two part question: 1. If you were a city/county Emergency Manager, how would you start building codes of ethics? 2. List the top three guiding principals and why? This is a long article however there is a CDC white paper on 28 ethics in EM, you might want to see if you agree with some of these concepts.
