In other words, your scenario should describe a situation in which a healthcare provider was negligent or committed malpractice against a patient. Be sure to properly detail the event and how it was resolved.

- Your third scenario should describe an instance in which a patient’s rights may have been violated by a healthcare provider. Also, the scenario should explain the responsibility that healthcare providers have to protect their patients from harm.
Please include all three scenarios within one document and submit it through SafeAssign within the assignment area in Blackboard. APA references are not necessary for this assignment.
