LEGAL LIMITATIONS While working with the client, counselors are required to follow the American Counseling Association (ACA) Code of Ethics (ACA, 2005). Counselors are not properly trained to meet the required criteria for prescribing medications. They do not possess the necessary license to engage in such a practice. Counselors should avoid suggesting to their clients in any way regarding the dosage, timings, or other ideas which can hamper the effective use of medications or put the client in a dangerous situation by experiencing unwanted side effects. Such a practice can expose the counselor to lose their license and may open doors for other legal
Some patients were also made to shower with their clothes on. The program un-covered serious abuse within the Hospital and there was a public outcry. Several people wrote to the Prime Minster who was reportedly “appalled” by the findings. The national regulator Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) involvement, Ms Margaret Flynn was asked to investigate what was happening at the Hospital and undertake a Serious Case Review. Whilst investigating she spoke to patients, workers, NHS staff and family members and learnt that there was a high level of physical intervention by the staff and some of the patents very badly hurt with some seen to be self-harming.
You look around and see the woman responsible for this happening and see a badge that says “RN”, a nurse just performed that lifesaving procedure. The television show Grey’s Anatomy, developed by Shonda Rhimes is a primetime medical drama that shows what is behind the scenes of the fictional lives of multiple residents and inters. The show rolls through the evolution off becoming doctors while still sustaining their own personal lives. Despite showing certain truthful things about a hospital, this television show skews the image that people develop about nursing. The image that the media portrays about a nurse’s education is damaging to the profession in many ways.
INTRODUCTION Occupational stress is a recognized problem in health care workers. Nurse and doctors has been identified as an occupation that has high levels of stress. In an investigation conducted by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health in the USA, nurses and doctors were found to be one of the occupations that had a higher than expected incidence of stress related health disorders.

This will seriously impair the provision of quality care and the effiency of health services delivery.
These are the most crucial. These are the effects that can cause a person’s death. For example, alcoholism can cause cancer in the stomach, kidneys, and liver. Besides, alcohol changes the digestion of nutrients that the human body needs to stay healthy. Alcoholism can also cause severe damage in the neurons, so it causes changes in a person’s body movements, loss of appetite, and depression.
Compassion Fatigue Most nurses enter the field of nursing with the intent to help others and provide empathetic care for patients with critical physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs. Empathic and caring nurses, however, can become victims of the continuing stress of meeting the often overwhelming needs of patients and their families, resulting in compassion fatigue. Compassion fatigue affects not only the nurse in terms of job satisfaction and emotional and physical health, but also the workplace environment by decreasing productivity and increasing turnover. Recently compassion fatigue is getting a lot of attention, especially in regards to nursing. For good reason; it could be very detrimental to your practice, permanently reducing your ability to care.
Finally, there is a dangerous lack of oversight by FDA regulators into the safety violations of companies such as Chemins leading to a reduced rate of public health and safety. Display: There are a number of options available to the Chemins company to deal with the ethical issue of mislabeled products. One is for the company to submit to mandatory testing of their products in order to ensure that what is on the label is what the product actually contains.

In circumstances where this is not possible, I feel the answer to this question is best left in the hands of medical professionals. The reason I feel competent patients should have the right to refuse medication is because I believe a person has a right over their body and should be able to refuse what they put in it. If a person is deemed dangerous of harming others or may act in a manor which violates the rights of others as a result of not taking their medication and is not determined to be incompetent, they should be subject to an evaluation by a medical professional. If the patient is still determined to be competent and refuses to take their medication, I believe they should not be forced to take the medication. I don't like my decision about supporting a
Care for the addicted patients is inappropriate in primary healthcare. Prescription medication abuse does not have a typical abuser. Prescription medication is appealing because users think of the medicine as safe. The medicine is FDA approved and does not have the stigma illegal drugs have.
