Case Study: WHEN RADIATION THERAPY KILLS.

1.The concepts of Ethics are illustrated in this chapter. Ethics is a

safety procedures and staffing are primarily to blame.
Organization was responsible for lack of properly budgeting of time and
resources for properly training doctors and medical technicians, there was
no room on already limited budgets for the training that equipment

check their work or time to do so; for lack of control and poor people
management as well as uses technology without appropriate updates in
software....
