The patient made it very clear that she did not want the phlebotomist to draw her blood (Finnegan, 2013).This same phlebotomist has drawn her for several days for a Prothrombin Time (PT) and Activated Thromboplastic Time (aPTT) without incident, so he reports this situation to the nurse. The nurse informs the phlebotomist that the patient has formed a complaint against him and did not want him, in particular, to draw her blood. The blood had been drawn from the dorsal side of her hand for several days, which was now bruised and swollen. The patient complained of moderate pain, especially when she moved her fingers. Upon observation there was a diffuse ecchymosis over the dorsal side of the hand that extends up the forearm to the elbow.

The physician did perform an exploratory laparotomy on her for a small bowel obstruction after the patient came in complaining of severe abdominal pain. Second, the patient has to prove that the physician was derelict. This means the patient has to prove that the physician failed to comply with standards of a physician. The physician left a sponge in her abdominal area which they later say is not the cause of her death but it caused severe abdominal pain and her and her husband kept reporting the pain to the nurses and morphine was kept given. If the patient didn’t die from heart failure first then she would had complications persisting from the sponge left in her body.
Martin de Porres was that he was known for his unique healing powers. An example of one of his healing miracles is when an 87 year old lady from Paraguay, was given a few hours to live. She several severe intestinal blockage and had suffered a heart attack. All the doctors had given up on her and were already making arrangements for her funeral the following day. However her daughter and some friends were praying to St. Martin and said 15 decades of the Rosary, asking above all through the intercessions of St. Martin that her mother would still be alive by the time she herself could reach her mother’s home in Paraguay.
In 1996 a pregnant woman, Darlene Brown, was admitted to Ingalls Memorial Hospital by her caring physician, Dr. Walsh. Brown had consented to have a cystoscopy and have a urethral mass removed. Brown had also been informed that she would lose blood during the operation, but had not discussed with her Doctor that she was a Jehovah's Witness and that blood transfusions are not part of her belief system. During the operation she lost more blood than anticipated and as result her blood hemoglobin level dropped below normal levels. Her low hemoglobin level put her and her unborn baby at high risk of death.

Of course, this is a strange pursuit because it requires searching for a propensity while at the same time it has always being inside me. One evening, when I returned from school I found out that my Aunt had gone through Uterine artery embolization. She was lying in bed with severe pain, prescribed with a couple of narcotics to control it. Despite being warned by the doctor of the pain she will go through if she lives the hospital after the procedure, she was forced to leave for the fear of how much it will cost her to stay overnight. I tended to the needs of my ill aunt and during this period of time, the idea of playing nurse never crossed my mind; rather, care giving was a way of life.
The Nurse’s Dilemma: Being Asked Not To Tell The Nurse’s Dilemma: Being Asked Not To Tell Nurses face ethical dilemmas on a regular basis. As nurses work to provide health care services, we often are asked to participate in ethically questionable activities (Potter, Perry, Stockert, & Hall, 2012). Today, a patient who was newly diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer with metastasis to her bones was admitted to the hospice unit. Her daughter is her primary caregiver and has asked me to deceive her mother by “turning over” my badge and telling her mother that I am from a home health agency. She specifically requested that I “do not say hospice” because she believes that her mother doesn’t know she has been admitted to the hospice unit.
