Ethical and Legal Debates In Irish Healthcare

Heike Felzmann

Manchester University Press

This chapter considers two high profile Irish inquiries: the Lourdes Hospital Inquiry on the Neary case and the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) Report on University Hospital Galway and the care of Savita Halappanavar from an organisational ethics perspective. The chapter outlines the significance of systemic factors in both cases and draws on literature from organisational clinical ethics and business ethics to provide a framework for thinking about the wider ethical responsibilities of healthcare organisations. It outlines how organisational structures are directly implicated in the facilitation of ethical actions by members of the organisation.

Keywords:   Organisational clinical ethics, Savita Halappanavar, Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital Inquiry, Systemic factors, Ethical responsibilities, Organisational structures
