Introduction

What is an ethical transgression?

Maintaining confidentiality

Ethical transgressions are dishonest actions. One of the most known ethical transgressions is maintaining confidentiality. This is a very clear ethical value in most jobs. For example, doctors are held to HIPPA laws that require they maintain confidentiality by not discussing their patients unless that patient has signed a release stating it is ok to share their information. Doctors may face dilemmas that challenge this law. An example could be if a doctor tells a patient’s diagnosis to someone who is visiting the patient. If the patient has not told the doctor it is ok to discuss their diagnosis then that doctor broke the law. Maybe a doctor would feel it was necessary to share the information so the patient could have some help but the doctor cannot share anything without permission. Students attend classes in graduate school to learn how to follow ethical guidelines so they are prepared for these situation (Koocher & Keith-Spiegel, 1998).

What ethical traits, concepts, and principles are presented in this article?

Ethical concepts in the article;

Confidentiality

Professional boundaries

Ethical traits guide people in their everyday life and in making decisions that are founded on ethical beliefs. Some situations highly test a person’s ethical and moral values. What someone decides makes up the kind of a person they are and how far they are willing to go to achieve a solution to a specific problem. Ethical traits are the guiding principles governing a certain code of behavior. Several ethical traits can be mentioned in regard to the article some of which are confidentiality, professional boundaries (Fly et al., 1997).Minor things can force people to compromise their basic principles. Education ethics should be able to emphasize on issues regarding confidentiality and professional boundaries. In this case, there was a failure to maintain the confidentiality of the other people. A good example is when a student transporting files that involved confidential information for fellow students left them in a public place and they were lost. Students should also not engage in conversations of a romantic or intimate manner with clients, supervisors or fellow students especially if the conversation is of harassing nature.
