The information Hannah disclosed would be recorded, signed and dated, reported to my line manager and those directly involved in Hannah's care such as her G.P. who could try to help her understand the benefits of taking her medication. If I failed to record/report the information I would not be fulfilling my duty of care to Hannah, this could lead to her becoming ill from not taking her medication, which would then be negligence on my part. If the information was shared with Hannah's daughter without her consent she could lose all trust in me and other staff and could withdraw and not tell anything. It could also lead to tension between Hannah and her daughter.
If we are sincerely committed to equality then the answer must be no. Demanding that she have the surgery would entail us to say that you have to give up your body to your unborn child. It is unacceptable to force a pregnant woman to undergo treatment. It is her fundamental right of freedom of choice and control over her own body and life. In fact if we force this woman to have the surgery it could compromise the sanctity of a woman’s body.
Knowledge of pressure ulcer prevalence. Knowing the stages of pressure ulcers, repositioning the patient every two hours, and not replacing him back onto his back when putting back to bed would have helped the nurse and CNA prevent one with this patient. Restraint prevalence knowledge by the nurse of when to use restraints and the proper management of patients in restraints. Patient satisfaction is another nursing sensitive indicator not taken into account here because of the nurse’s attitude towards the wrong diet being delivered and not keeping Mr. J.’s daughter informed of the incident and how it was remedied. The remark the nurse made was also inappropriate and shows she did not have the patient or family’s satisfaction in mind.
Those conflicts may include: refusing a meal, type of activity, refusing medication or a treatment. For example: My client Molly (with serious dementia) decide not to take her blood pressure medication, she needs that medication to take every day. For me as a carer have the duty of care to make sure she takes her medication, but then again she has the right to refuse her
An example I can give is, I had gone to a caregiver in regards to my daughter, while the caregiver was asking me some questions about my personal history, some that may have had an effect on my daughters issues, the caregiver gave an expression that showed how she felt about the question on a personal note. She had clearly expressed to me that she did not approve my lifestyle. By a caregiver expressing this, it automatically created a communication barrier, and I chose to not ever return to this caregiver again. Health is something that may cause a barrier too my way of some patients may have health issues that are due to some bad habits and or choices they do in life that may be a big part of the health issue. An example I can think of is, my father in-law did not like to go to the emergency department when he was having a difficult time breathing because he was a heavy smoker and he did not like that the caregivers from past experiences have told him he needed to quit smoking.
June, a 34-year-old divorced woman diagnosed with severe anorexia, is hospitalized. Her doctors feel she may need to be placed on a feeding tube soon to save her life. Initially June agreed to the feeding tube. However, in the evening (before the tube has been placed), she became combative, disoriented, and refused to have the feeding tube placed. Her mother and father insisted that the feeding tube be inserted despite her refusal to allow it.
The husband wanted to save his wife, but on the other hand, their children belief that their mom wants a quality of life with dignity. When a nurses engaged such a complex ethical situation, the Ethical Committee resources included multidisciplinary groups that are needed to assist patient and family. Based on statutory law, patients have the right to make a decision to withdraw or withhold any treatment (Blais & Hayes, 2011). In the case study of Marianne, the patient do not have advanced directive on file, therefore, the statutory laws are not against family's decision related to her care. The nurse can only educate and provide information and be the patients' advocate.
The patient constantly asks the medical assistant about her step daughter. However the doctor told the medical assistant not to tell the patient about her step daughter’s death without giving any reasons for such instructions. Hence, the medical assistant encounters an uncomfortable position of whether to tell the truth or withhold it. The moral principles in conflict are honesty and loyalty because the medical assistant wants to be honest with the patient without being disloyal to the doctor. Another issue of conflict is breach of confidentiality.
doctors shouldn't treat abortion simply because each patient has a particular case; sometimes the fetus or embryo is a result of incest, rape, fetal defects or puts the mother’s health at risk. In these cases the doctor should encourage or normalize abortion, but I other cases he should remind them of the side effects and the morality while respecting the woman’s decision without traumatizing her in order to make the memory a good one, as the author suggests. Prine focuses on the positive impact that abortion has on relationships between mother/daughter or within a couple because of the support they give each other during this experience. But this is nothing to compare to the relationship the woman will have with her own child. They say a mother’s love is unconditional, which is a love she won’t experience if she aborts.
To an ethical social worker, a person’s rights to well-being may override laws, policies, and arrangements of organizations (Hepworth, Rooney, Strom-Gottfried, & Larsen, 2010, p. 73). Therefore, in this case scenario, although, as an employee of the human service center, I am responsible to put the plan of closing and relocation of the mental hospitals into effect immediately, considering its deficiencies and the potential threats to the tranquil environment of my clients’ community, I may not implement this
