1.03 Accountability Behavior analysts are accountable for their actions and professional services and follow through on work commitments. When errors occur or commitments cannot be met, behavior analysts take all appropriate actions to directly address them, first in the best interest of clients, and then in the best interest of relevant parties. 2.01 Providing Effective Treatment Behavior analysts prioritize clients' rights and needs in service delivery. They provide services that are conceptually consistent with behavioral principles, based on scientific evidence, and designed to maximize desired outcomes for and protect all clients, stakeholders, supervisees, trainees, and research participants from harm. Behavior analysts implement nonbehavioral services with clients only if they have the required education, formal training, and professional credentials to deliver such services. 3.01 Responsibility to Clients Behavior analysts act in the best interest of clients, taking appropriate steps to support clients' rights, maximize benefits, and do no harm. They are also knowledgeable about and comply with applicable laws and regulations related to mandated reporting requirements. Stream of the Flowchart Determine Applicable Codes 1.03 Accountability The adult day program staff are accountable for their actions and choice to restrain the client and remove her from the building without shoes. This is not in the best interest of the client but rather the best interest of the company's fire protocol. Therefore, the staff's actions violate the ethical code of accountability. 2.01 Providing Effective Treatment The fire drills however important, are opportunities to implement behvioural practices that prioritize the clients rights and needs. During the fire drills the adult day staff violate the client's rights and have not recognized the need to create an alternate fire protocol for the client that delivers the same outcome (exiting the building). The restraint services provided by various staff, also violated the client's rights. The unknown information is whether they have been formally trained in restraint protocol, and/or is there a restraint protocol evenin place. These questions make me question the staff's ethics. 3.01 Responsibility to Clients
