For each of the ethical situations described below, identify the specific tenet of the AHIMA Code of Ethics that has been violated, explain what is wrong with the action, and describe what the HIM professional should have done or said.

Hearing of a job in a hospital in the next town where the salary is better and the working conditions more pleasant, Erica Abbott, RHIA, applies for it. During her interview, she states that she earned her degree in a well-respected program. In reality, she spent only one year in that program before transferring to another program where she actually earned her degree. She secures the new position and, because the second hospital is very anxious to have her start work at once, places a letter of resignation under the door of the vice president to whom she reports in her current position, informing the VP that she will not be returning to the facility.
