Conflict of Interest

What action and communication would you use immediately with the client and your colleague. List 3 things you would do and say.

With client

The very first thing I would do is to protect her privacy (cover her up) which is a matter of great concern. I would calm her down and apologize for the rude behavior of my colleague. I will also tell her if she wants she can complain to the supervisor.

With colleague

The care worker was not complying with the principles of duty of care and legal responsibilities as the worker was rude with the resident, doors, and curtains were opened and privacy and dignity were not maintained. The worker was harassing her. I would immediately appropriately help the resident. In this case, I will report this matter to the supervisor in private (Srinivasulu, Dedipya & Mrudula, 2018).

What steps would you take to report any breach to standard procedures or event situation of concern to appropriate personnel

The steps are:

  • All types of clinical or cooperate incident must be reported verbally that too within 8 hours with a document submitted in written form within 24 hours
  • Each and every piece of clinical incidents of some significance is investigated in accordance with the review process associated with NSW's clinical health.
  • All types of recommendation based on the review process of endorsing risks management as a result of a relevant meeting
  • The mentioned type of recommendations is further reviewed, monitored as well as implemented that too, within 100days of incident’s notification.
  • The management is held responsible for providing an appropriate form of feedback in regards to the staff
  • The whole process of reporting must address the legal legislative requirements

How would you ensure you maintain the confidentiality of this client as per the organization's policy and procedure? List at least 2 ways you can do this.

In this case, I will not tell the care staff that I will not share what I have seen with others and will not make a promise. In the case of a situation associated with immoral behavior and abuse that must be reported compulsorily. I will report this matter to the supervisor privately. The organizational approach is to fill out an incident/accident form, take appropriate action, provide further training and education on abuse and care responsibilities, and assist everyone in maintaining respect (Dickens & Litsky, 2018).

List at least 2 ways you would demonstrate respect for the rights and responsibilities of others through the considered application of work practices.

The two ways are:

  • I will show respect by following the guidelines and trying to implement them in our work practice.
  • I can also demonstrate that via our communication. It’s all about if we have got awareness or not and also to what level we are motivated to consider and apply them.

Outline your understanding of employee and employer rights and responsibilities for this scenario. List at least 2 rights and 2 responsibilities each for employee and employer.

For this scenario, the employee has rights:

  • To avail all resources for work

  • Enlisting all the work-related injuries causing incidents
  • Identification of the hazards, while conducting risk assessments as well as controlling risks through the SAFER approach.
  • Development as well as the implementation of a review based WHS policies including its procedures

How would you recognize any conflict of interest in this scenario? How would you avoid and/or address any conflict of interest?

Conflict of interest can be determined by cconsidering:

  • The aspects of financial interests
  • Next comes the location of situations where the conflict of interest may arise while catering to the products or services as per customer’s requirements.

Ways to avoid or address any conflict of interest (Härter et al., 2017):

  • Talking with negation in regards to addressing the point of disagreement
  • By addressing the behavioral focal point along with personality-based events derived from the generalizing events, describing a specific instance.
  • Listening and communicating carefully
  • Identification of the points of agreement and disagreement
  • Developing a plan to work on each conflict.
  • Follow through on your plan.
  • Build on your success and enhance your relationship.

What types of documentation would you complete in this situation? List at least two that apply.

Most appropriate form of document used in this situation includes (Osman, 2016):

  • PIP (Performance Increase Program) in the form of a warning letter can be assigned to an employee requesting him/her to fill up all the particulars and amends them.
  • As in the form of a long term working promise or reduce stability issues a bond or treaty can be signed off in between the employees and the employer's team HR.

The worker was giving harassment to her (Srinivasulu, Dedipya & Mrudula, 2018).
