The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations has increased its attention to patient rights in the past decades. Included in this emphasis is a requirement for a mechanism for solving conflicts. This body has broadened the reach of ethics and patient rights to include a similar function-based requirement for an institutional code of ethical behavior. That is to say the Joint Commission is concerned with how institution conducts itself or operates in each day activity. This paper will therefore look at the place of social workers in such environment and how pain control an issue in such environment.
