While the physician did not believe that, at the time of treatment, the patient was competent to make this decision, the patient had an advanced directive that clearly stated that he did not wish to be intubated. Provision 2.1 of the ANA Code of Ethics also directs that the nurses primary concern is always for the patient and the best interest of the patient while Provisions 3.1 and 3.2 discuss the nurses responsibility for providing the patient with privacy and confidentiality, all of these provisions were ignored, to a degree, during the course of this scenario. While the scenario describes Mr. E as having a mild developmental disability we do not know his actual level of competence at the time the advanced directive and the medical power of attorney was signed. Just because he has a developmental disability does not mean that the disability was severe enough that the patient was unable to comprehend the choices he made when instituting these
The lack in education and experice results in lower levels of trust in medical care. They are skeptical about receiving care from physicians, nurses and the entire medical care regimen as a whole. Women who are skeptical about the care will reject prenatal testing. For example referring back to the story about tracy, she rejected getting an ultrasound because she believed that the radioactive rays would affect her fetus. If she was educated about the importance of prenatal testing Nahla might have been normal today.
In fact if we force this woman to have the surgery it could compromise the sanctity of a woman’s body. This would bring up the whole debate of abortion. Having the fetus’s rights just as important if not more than the mother’s, could say that if you have an abortion or miscarriage that you could be charged with a criminal offence. In the interest of fairness and justice, she should not be forced to have the

There is also Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, however there is still not enough resources to provide adequate services to the homeless population. There is also the Supportive Housing Program that has started in the state, but has not made it into our area as of yet. A Plan of Action * This is a fifteen bedroom house that will have offices for the nurse and social worker. * We will provide a place for people that are both homeless and disabled and help them receive the resources they need to live on their own. * The nurse will be responsible for all medical care, such as withdrawal from drugs, administrating appropriate medications, and any other medical care that would be needed.
Homelessness is perceived and tackled differently according to country. The European Typology of Homelessness and Housing Exclusion was developed as a means of improving understanding and measurement of homelessness in Europe, and to provide a common "language" for transnational exchanges on homelessness. The ETHOS approach confirms that homelessness is a process that affects many vulnerable households at different points in their lives.
