America became a free independent nation. With the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1783, the former mother country, England, recognized that its children, the colonies, were now on their own. A constitutional republic was birthed, and thus the challenges began. Slavery, the “Peculiar Institution,” was a monumental issue facing the country. Would it die or would it survive and possibly take a nation divided with it? This sectionalism followed Americans up into the Civil War. Dissect this crisis by addressing parts I and II below.
For the next part of this assignment you will create an outline of the main points you want to address in this paper. This will serve as the basis for your Assignment 2.2 Final Draft. (Note: Please use the Purdue Owl website to assist you with this assignment; this website can be accessed at: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/engagement/2/2/55/.)

ensure that procedures are done for the appropriate indications?
3. If the allegations are true, what obligation does the hospital have to protect the patients in the community from Dr. Kutall? What should the hospital do to prevent this type of situation in the future? Provide your reflections and personal opinions as well as your recommendations for addressing these problems.
CASE STUDY: “Surgical Need or Greed”
You are the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) at Sunnyside Memorial Medical Center (SMMC). It has been brought to your attention that one of your surgeons, Dr. Kutall, is doing an extraordinary amount of carotid artery surgery. Your first impression is that this is good for the institution. He has developed a large referral practice, been a member of the staff for many years, and always supported the hospital.
Drs. Smith and Boyle have requested a meeting with you because they are concerned about this extraordinary number of procedures and have reviewed some of the preoperative indications. Dr. Smith is Chief of Vascular Surgery and chairs the quality assurance committee for the department. It is his job to examine the indications for these procedures.
The surgeon in question, Dr. Kutall, has been operating on the basis of duplex ultrasound testing obtained primarily from his laboratory, which he operates independently of the hospital. A few patients had their workups done elsewhere. Drs. Smith and Boyle reviewed those studies and felt the results did not warrant surgical intervention. The quality assurance committee has asked Dr. Kutall to provide the workup and diagnostic information for his last 50 carotid surgeries.
The committee reviewed the reports from Dr. Kutall’s vascular laboratory. According to his reports, all signed by Dr. Kutall, the patients met the criteria for surgery. However, when Drs. Smith and Boyle reviewed the scans, they felt that these were grossly overread. What Dr. Kutall considered a greater than 70% blockage, the other surgeons read as no greater than 50% blockage. The gold standard indication for carotid surgery is an arterial blockage of 70% or greater. Dr. Kutall’s procedures on patients with no greater than 50% blockage were definitely not indicated or appropriate. Upon further review, the success rate for Dr. Kutall’s surgery seemed to be in the acceptable range, which would be one reason Dr. Kutall’s practice variation had not appeared on the hospital quality assurance radar in the past. His results were not bad, but the surgeries were not indicated. Inappropriate surgery puts patients at risk unnecessarily, to say nothing about resulting in excessive expenditures for unnecessary procedures.
As the CMO, it is your job to ensure appropriate medical care and patient safety. The report on Dr. Kutall and his dubious practices was forwarded to the medical executive board for review. It is now up to them to decide if Dr. Kutall should be disciplined.
Larry Landlord has recently renovated an apartment and has put it on the market to be rented for $800.00 a month. Larry Landlord has been in business for approximately five (5) years and has had both positive and negative experiences with tenants. Larry Landlord is hoping to find a good, long-term tenant for his apartment. Roger Renter saw Larry’s sign for the apartment for rent and thought the location and the apartment would be perfect. Roger met Larry to look at the apartment and Roger fell in love with it. All of the interior fixtures had been replaced and the unit had a nice large closet. Roger noticed that although newly painted, the exterior of the apartment did show a little bit of wear. Because of the condition of the exterior of the building, Roger asked Larry about any roof leaks. Larry stated that he had never had a leak and was not aware of any leaks.
Roger and Larry entered into a valid contract for the rental of the apartment. (Note: The issue of whether or not a contract exists is NOT part of this question. For purposes of this question assume the contract is valid and there are no issues with the contract.)
Roger Renter was very happy in his new location; the apartment was quiet and the neighbors were friendly. Larry Landlord was also very happy because Roger Renter was a model tenant. Roger Renter paid on time and was quiet and respectful to other tenants.
The part of the country where Roger rented was rainy in the summertime. Roger rented and moved into the apartment in October. In June, a tremendous rainstorm occurred and Roger’s roof began to leak. The leak was minor at first and Roger merely put a trash can under the leak and had no other issues that month. When handing over his monthly rent check, Roger told Larry about the small leak. Larry thanked Roger for letting him know about the leak and told Roger he would have it fixed.
The next month the rains came again and the leak grew larger in Roger’s apartment. Roger was not home at the time of the rain and therefore the leak damaged some of Roger’s furniture. Roger called Larry to let him know that there was a leak and asked when it might be fixed. Roger also stated that he thought Larry had fixed the roof. Larry curtly stated, “When it rains, sometimes it pours. When it pours, sometimes it leaks.” Roger did not like Larry’s tone or response and called back to ask when the roof might be fixed. Larry stated, “When I get to it.” The following day, Roger sent Larry a note about the roof leak and asked Larry to please address the issue.
The week before the rent was due, another rainstorm occurred and the leak was even larger. This time the leak damaged Roger’s clothing, furniture, and some precious items he had inherited from family members. Roger called Larry and asked Larry to fix roof immediately. Larry responded in a similar and condescending manner. Roger hung up the phone and threw his baseball bat against the wall, damaging the drywall and knocking out an electrical socket.
Since it was the rainy season, Roger knew it would rain again and therefore simply moved his items away from the leak and did nothing to help mitigate the damage from the leaking roof.
Larry came into the apartment to investigate the leak and found damage from not only the leak but also from the thrown baseball bat. Roger states that the baseball bat damage was a direct result of Larry’s inability to fix the leak based on his anger from Larry’s curt response.
Suppose you are a mediator. In five to seven (5-7) pages discuss the rights and responsibilities of the landlord and the tenant in which you:
