Adhering to strong personal values and always being honest
What is it?
Ethical behavior is characterized by honesty, fairness and morality. A person who embodies Ethical Behavior lives by a code of ethics and high moral standards that others respect and admire.
Why is it important?
Employers, colleagues, and patients all want to engage with people who consistently practice Ethical Behavior. People quickly learn who can be trusted and who withholds or compromises the truth. Ethical Behavior is especially important when dealing with confidential patient information and sensitive decisions. In an environment where medical personnel rely on others and work in tandem to effectively complete their job, it is important to have a foundation of ethical practices, transparency, respect, and honesty.
