- There is some evidence to suggest that the widespread use of certain wireless tablet devices in hospitals has led to significant improvements in patient satisfaction as well as some small decreases in physician error. During the product launch of technologies such as the tablet, product shortages frequently occur, leaving some prospective consumers empty-handed. Knowing that these technologies may benefit patients in hospital, some believe that hospitals should be given priority treatment to receive devices before being offered to the community at large.
- Should companies be forced to discount their products when there is a societal benefit?
- What are some of the security issues related to the use of tablets in hospitals?
- Is it fair that the security of an important elected official such as the President of the United States take precedence over the travel plans of thousands of his/her constituents?
- What guidelines should be followed to determine how often these delays should be tolerated?
- Describe a situation where you have experienced a travel delay at a time that was inconvenient for you. How did you handle it?
