Microallocation Case Study

Satisfactory Essays
Microallocation involves the determination of who will receive scarce resources such as intensive care beds and dialysis services, and it involves solving problems dealing with matters such as abortion, feeding tubes, and ventilators. The determination for the use of a specific resource and who will receive that resource is made by the physician and is said to be a microethical determination. For example, in my profession I will encounter situations that will require my ethical decision. It will come a time when I have to decide whether to focus all my resources on a specific project or risk the future of my company just so different departments can have, at least the essentials to continue their work.
