There  are methods to  keep privacy protocols in place  for pa tients.  Ethics, morals, and the legal system are some of the ways behaviors are kept under control.    

Ethics and morals are  based on  individual  feel ings in   any given situation .  The diversity in the population of  the U.S. makes it necessary for other cultures to be recognized for their differences, also.  Professionals and other employees at the facility must follow the rules and regulations inside the facility where they are employed.

I am aware of many topics that I would be interested in writing about in my final paper, but would like a little more time to make my decision. I especially like the ethical and legal parts of my class and will do an outline and get started on my research for my project.
