Document Preview:

Name: Subject: Instructor: Date: Public Health Laws and Code of Ethics Public Health Code of Ethics The Public Health code of conduct in the United States clarifies guiding principles that are supposed to be followed by the health practitioners. The code of ethics clarifies what the practitioners are supposed to do for certain incidences (13). The vaccination case is guided by both the public health laws in the United States as well as the code of ethics by the health practitioners. The role of the code of ethics is to ensure that the health of the public is protected and the practitioners act morally. It emphasizes on the need for the practitioners to exercise power for the health of the public. Vaccination Laws and the Vaccination Policies in the United States Bradford and Anne (1387) define vaccination policy as the public health policy that the government their children vaccinated then the doctor can report the parent to the child protection agencies. For the case named above the child health is at risk if not vaccinated and therefore the case can fall under child's medical neglect and therefore should be reported to the child protection agencies.
