An example of this can be in legal profession where an attorney is ethically bound to represent his client to the best of his ability even though the attorney may not agree with the morality of his client.
I do not believe ethic is always black and white and sometimes certain decisions health care providers make can might be considered unethical but made for the right reasons. I do believe health care providers attempt to make ethical decisions daily but moral dilemmas and conflict can get in the way. “Not all ethical dilemmas involve choosing between two happy options. Sometimes an ethical dilemma involves having to choose between two actions, both of which are undesirable options” (Ingram&Parks, 2006, p.16). This writer will explore her own ethical dilemmas by using the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) to determine if I am as ethical as I may think.
If I were Charles Renfold, I would take a minute to myself before I gave Darlene Lambert the answer that she probably wouldn’t like. Which is, that I would apologize to Darlene for the odor that she does not like being around, and that I would come up with way of dealing with the issue in the very near future. I would then let her know that she is valued at our company and that she is an asset to our company.

However, passiveness is a mere possibility for view pertaining to ethical psychology (Berk, 2010). Researchers find it necessary to distinguish when the more deliberative progressions operate, and how each relates to one another; such is the case with this week's scenario, Jane and the assigning moral reasoning through her cognition responses (Walden, 2012; Berk, 2010). An individual may have to decide to tell the truth; even if the person is risking hurting someone's feelings with a white lie. For example, if one was to clean out their closet, they would in turn, make a moral choice, whether to give the toy away or make a profit by selling them.
