In healthcare, civic responsibility is involves individual decisions, which are very difficult to enforce through the law. For instance, throwing away rubbish might eventually become a very grave healthcare concern to the whole community of not avoided. The public are therefore under the duty of ensuring that they always keep their environment clean and avoid practices that would compromise the healthcare situation. Civic responsibility in healthcare does not only boil down to individuals. It also encompasses the practices and duties which are supposed to be conducted by organizations. Organizations should always ensure that their activities do not in any way affect the general environment in a way that can compromise the health situation. In this regard, the dumping of toxic wastes and other concerns should be a top priority for organizations.
