2.4 Describe how using a risk assessment can help address dilemmas between an individual’s rights to choice and health and safety concerns Using a risk assessment can help address dilemmas between an individual’s rights to choice and health and safety concerns. Every resident has a right to make choices to do with their own well-being and how they want their care to be carried out. Sometimes a resident’s rights and choices may conflict with the views of healthcare professionals. For example; every resident has a care plan, in this care plan it documents how a resident needs to be moved and handled. Some residents have to use a hoist as the most safe and efficient way of moving. Our duty of care as carers is to make sure a resident uses the correct way of moving and handling to reduce injury and risk which in this case is a hoist, we are not allowed under any circumstance to move them without a hoist. It is in the agreed ways of working, and also we could be putting not only ourselves but the residents in danger. This becomes a dilemma when a resident refuses to use a hoist for a reason. They have a right to choose not to use the hoist but we have a duty of care to only carry out safe practice. We can only highlight the potential hazards to the individuals, but if they decide to take the risks with their health, then at least they have the information to make the right choice. Every decision must be recorded immediately. If a resident does have a certain concern or worry about using the hoist, it may need to be risk assessed to see if there is any other method of transferring that would be better suited to the resident. This would be a job for the manager to carry out.

...THE SIGNIFICANCE OF INDIVIDUALRIGHTS IN EARLY AMERICAN LITERATURE
Early America experienced discrimination, slavery, segregation, and racism. In addition, individualrights are not equal and same for everyone. When American Anti-Slavery and Civil Rights timeline is analyzed, one can say that everything started with the slave trade. White people brought millions of black Africans to America in order to make them work as slaves. They worked in the gold mines and did the hardest works. As the time passed, slavery started to be regarded as a legal institution. Slave trade expanded in time. While in some parts of America slavery was protested, some parts continued to legalize it.
In order to attract the attention to the situation and state the unjustness in the individualrights some writers started to write on behalf of the African Americans. Anthony Benezet who was one of the most influential antislavery writer of America wrote a pamphlet called ‘Observations on the Inslaving, Importing and Purchasing of Negroes’, the first of many anti-slavery works. Another work called ‘A Narrative of the Lord’s Wonderful Dealings with John Marrant, a Black Man’ was the first autobiography of a free black whose name is John Murrant. Moreover, Thomas Clarkson wrote ‘An Essay on the Slavery and Commerce of the Human Species, Particularly the African.’ It was one of the most...

Advantages and disadvantages of individualrights and public order
Every human being deserves to have Individualrights and they are a very important part of the justice system. Without individualrights things would be chaotic therefore, public order is brought into the system so that everyone’s individualrights are in place for each individual to use as a backbone for guidelines of what is acceptable and what is not. Although, there are disadvantages and advantages of both individualrights and public order they are still very essential to maintain order.
Individualrights are distinct from civil or legal rights as these are rights granted by government to citizens and will vary with the organization and administration of governments. Individualrights identify a boundary of just social interaction in presence or absence of government (Wikipedia). Many people do not realize all the advantages that America gives us. The Bill of Rights is the backbone to what freedom is all about. The purpose of a Bill of...
IndividualRights and Freedoms
It’s crazy to think that 13 colonies would soon become an entire independent country united with the same belief. The colonists came from Britain to America in hopes to pursue a better life with more freedom. They were tired of the monarchy government and how it seemingly dictated their life. The people were tired of King George robbing them of their say in how their lives should be ran! They were tired of him not taking into consideration how they wanted to be governed. Many felt as though their rights were not being kept and they wanted to put an end to it. So that’s why they began the long journey of creating a new country. It started out as them leaving Britain, but not all ties had yet been cut. The new world needed support to begin. However, as the years went by, more of the citizens’ rights were being overlooked. King George cutoff trade with all other parts of the world which caused a tremendous uproar. The government the colonists were living under wasn’t doing its job. The new system they created, after they had declared independence from Britain, guaranteed the people certain rights and freedoms. It became the job of the United States’ government to protect these civil liberties.
So many of the concepts we follow to this day were almost not added to our governing system. The Bill of Rights was an idea brought up by George Mason from...
Definition of Individual Autonomy
Individual autonomy is basically defined as the condition or state in which actions of a person are self directed. The person who practices individual autonomy has complete authority over his or her choices and actions; specifically an autonomous person bases his decision completely on his views and ideas when the decision is of significant importance. Sense of individual autonomy can also be referred as a property of person’s desires or acts when they are considered individually, these acts or desires pertains to the manner in which a person behaves or acts in a particular situation 1.
Elaboration of the concept
In order to further elaborate the concept of autonomy we can also say that an autonomous person is one who is self-driven and sets goals and missions for his life, here goals and missions specifically refers to those goals which a person has selected by his own will from a variety of options and for achievement of these goals he sets certain milestones which he plans to achieve over a period of time.
Autonomy or following self carved direction is also sometimes termed as positive freedom. It is not simply independence from following direction which is dictated by others but it is the sort of positive liberty which is strongly associated with ability and desire of self governance or psychological resources for self-esteem or self-directedness 2....
...structure established a mission statement of American politics which still exists in our government today: the power of the fundamental rights of the individual. The states had gained true independence under this configuration and this ideal was something that many opponents of the ratification of the Constitution were refusing to sacrifice. Implementing a central government would shift power from the newly sovereignty of that states that had not been easily obtained and this ignited a fear of possible “tyranny of the majority” if the Constitution was eventually ratified. Submitting to a Constitution meant that they would have to place a sense of trust into a strong central government and this was not something taken lightly. Facing a declining economy amongst other problems brought on by the Articles of Confederation, something had to be done to remedy the unforeseen issues between the states. Both federalists and anti-federalists induced a great debate through the means of numerous publications released to the public prior to the ratification of the Constitution.
In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson asserted that:
“all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.- That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their powers from the...
...Important Documents on the Rights of the Individual
It was the first document forced onto a King of England by a group of his subjects, the feudal barons, in an attempt to limit his powers by law and protect their rights. In 1215 the charter required King John of England to proclaim certain liberties and accept that his will was not arbitrary—for example by explicitly accepting that no "freeman" (non-serf) could be punished except through the law of the land, a right that still exists.
The English Bill of Rights:
Is an Act of the Parliament of England passed on 16 December 1689. It lays down limits on the powers of the crown and sets out the rights of Parliament and rules for freedom of speech in Parliament, the requirement for regular elections to Parliament and the right to petition the monarch without fear of retribution. the Bill of Rights is still in effect.
The American Declaration of Independence:
Is a statement adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, which announced that the thirteen American colonies, then at war with Great Britain, regarded themselves as independent states, and no longer a part of the British Empire. Instead they formed a union that would become a new nation—the United States of America.

IndividualRights and Public Order
Individualrights are those rights we have that allow us to exercise our freedoms granted by the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights, originally drafted in 1789 by James Madison, came into effect in 1791 (Wikipedia 2007). The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not construe to deny or disparage others retained by the people. These rights became the first ten amendments of the U.S. Constitution. These rights have been the cornerstone of American Law then and still are today without these rights, this country would not have become the democracy it is today, and a land where individuals would be subject to a stricter, more dictatorial government.
Individualrights are those rights that allow us to live our day-to-day lives without fear of government intervention, unless of course we break the law or violate one of these rights. Among them are freedom of speech, free exercise of religion, protecting citizens from unreasonable search and seizure, cruel and unusual punishment, and...
...The Privacy Rights of Individuals
Privacy can be defined in many ways, depending on one’s perspective, including the right to be left alone, free from intrusion or disturbance in one’s private life. Although everyone agrees that this is an important right that should be protected by governmental laws, the extent of one’s right to privacy has often been a matter of debate in the court system of the United States. There is vast disagreement concerning how far the government should go to protect an individual’s right to privacy. The United States is a large melting pot of cultures, races and ideas, which often lead to a differing of opinions in term of what should be the norm due to ethical and moral difference between individuals. This paper will present court cases that deal with the privacy rights of individuals as they relate to the areas of homosexuality, drug testing, birth control and the right to die.
An individual’s right to sexual privacy, including homosexuality, is an issue that has been brought before the courts repeatedly. Bowers v. Hardwick is a landmark case fought in 1986 that tested the boundaries of sexual rights. Hardwick was charged with committing consensual sodomy in the privacy of his bedroom with another adult male. He had violated the Georgia statute that criminalized...
