Review the lecture (see attached).
The term “managed care” refers to several different forms of healthcare provision intended to ensure quality care for people in America at lower costs. In 1973, the Health Maintenance Organization Act was signed by President Nixon and funding for HMO expansion was provided to employers willing to provide health insurance for employees. HMOs were the first true form of
managed care.
MCOs have gone through many changes over the years, some of which have been beneficial and others that have not been
successful. After a thorough research of credible sources from the Internet, please answer the following questions:
1.) What is the purpose of an MCO?
2.) What are the major differences between MCOs, Health Managed Organizations (HMOs), Preferred Provider Organizations
(PPOs), and Exclusive Provider Organizations (EPOs)?
3.) MCOs provide monetary incentives to physicians who keep the costs of caring for patients as low as possible. Do you feel it is ethical? Why or why not?

Assignment Details Scenario: Toxic Managers, Harassment, Hostile Work Environmen

Assignment Details
Scenario: Toxic Managers, Harassment, Hostile Work Environment, Retaliation, Discrimination, and Bullying
Mr. Joseph is the nurse manager for the MedSurgical Unit at North Central Medical Hospital. Nurse Candice says that he has made the unit into a hostile working environment for her. She has refused to get involved in an inappropriate relationship with Mr. Joseph for the past 3 years. Candice is a much-disciplined worker who takes her work very seriously. She had a slight disability and required reasonable accommodation to do her job. Recently, Mr. Joseph started writing up Candice for every minor infraction. He had condoned and previously overlooked most of these infractions, hoping that Candice would come around.
Mr. Joseph frequently comments about Candice’s race, religion, sex, age, and genetic disposition in a sarcastic manner, which was an embarrassment. Her peers often ridicule her about Mr. Joseph’s behavior. A few weeks ago, Mr. Joseph denied Candice promotions and bonuses. He often finds it hard to approve her request for FMLA leave of absence, citing staff shortage.
One day, Candice decided to bring the matter to the chief nursing officer (CNO), citing a hostile working environment, undue hardship, and bullying. The CNO talked to Mr. Joseph, scolded him, and demanded that he apologize to Candice. Although Mr. Joseph apologized, his behavior took another turn. He started retaliating against Candice. The situation became unbearable for Candice, so she decided to sue the North Central Medical Hospital management for harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and bullying. She filled an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) complaint and demanded a million dollars for her pain and suffering.
You have been hired by North Central Medical Hospital management to provide training on employee relations issues (especially violence in the workplace), including the following:
Sexual harassment
Hostile work environment
Discrimination
Retaliation
Toxic managers
Reasonable accommodation
Other employment laws
Prepare a 15-slide PowerPoint presentation addressing the following:
What are the U.S. Supreme Court’s views on retaliation, and how are they used in the workplace?
What strategies could healthcare managers use to prevent and remedy discrimination in the workplace?
What is the importance of periodic reviews of human resource practices and processes in hospitals?
What is the impact of disciplinary actions, the basis for taking them, and the fundamental due process on personnel management?
How do you explain the concept of reasonable accommodation and undue hardship?
What are the differences between sexual harassment and a hostile work environment?
What strategic and operational approaches can HR managers use to resolving complex employee relation issues?
Would you apply any of these strategies in this case? If yes, how? If not, why not?
Submitting your assignment in APA format means, at a minimum, you will need the following:
Title slide: Remember the running head. The title should be in all capitals.
Length: 15 slides minimum
Body slides: This begins on the slide following the title slide and must be double-spaced (be careful not to triple- or quadruple-space between paragraphs). The typeface should be 12-pt. Times Roman or 12-pt. Courier in regular black type. Do not use color, bold type, or italics, except as required for APA-level headings and references. The deliverable length of the body of your presentation for this assignment is 15 slides. In-body academic citations to support your decisions and analysis are required. A variety of academic sources is encouraged.
Reference slide: References that align with your in-body academic sources are listed on the final slide of your presentation. The references must be in APA format using appropriate spacing, hanging indent, italics, and uppercase and lowercase usage as appropriate for the type of resource used. Remember, the Reference slide is not a bibliography but a further listing of the abbreviated in-body citations used in the paper. Every referenced item must have a corresponding in-body citation.
