He is not only informally treating and collecting specimen from his daughter, but he is also not documenting any of the treatments that he is doing. This is a major problem and could be subject to intervention by the law. Joe is risking his medical credibility by doing this for his daughter. He is also performing these tests without the direct supervision of the supervising physician, which goes against the code of conduct (2013). If a physician assistant violates laws that vary from state to state, the physician assistant could be subject to license suspension or being
This ensures that new employees in a healthcare facility do not bring in the disease to pass on to the patients that are more susceptible to it. There are some people that need this explained to them or they would argue that the test is pointless if they do not have any of the symptoms. TB lays dormant and can become active at anytime without someone knowing that it is there, then making it contagious to anyone that is around when they coughed, sneezed or even just breathed on. Explaining this to people that argue usually end the
Many people believe that people shouldn’t take any kind of drug to get rid of depression. I disagree with those people, I believe people should be able to take antidepressants to help them better themselves and hopefully help them have a better life. There are many reasons why I think people should be able to take antidepressants. One major reason is because I take them and I believe that they have helped me a lot, maybe even to the extreme where they have saved my life. Before I started taking antidepressants I was very depressed, suffered from social anxiety and I felt that life didn’t really have a meaning for me.
For example if a doctor is of the Jehovah witness belief and they have a bleeding patient they may not believe it is right to give them a blood transfusion but as the patient may not share that belief and it is in the patients best interest the doctor should perform the transfusion regardless of his own beliefs. Workers of the health and care industry shouldn’t let their own beliefs and attitudes effect there care or treatment of a patient and shouldn’t judge any patient on anything such as race, religion, gender, sexual orientation etc and shouldn’t get involved in patients personal life unless its effects there treatment or care. I can relate to this in my work area in many ways, one of the ways is chaperoning patients and doctors as many female patients don’t want a male chaperone. This could be due to religious beliefs or just because they feel uncomfortable with a male chaperone, so often I have to call a female colleague to chaperone in my place. Another issue is obtaining food
However, plastic surgery can be a good thing for people who really have a medical reason to undergo those procedures. Changing one’s appearance based on society’s pressure is not necessary. Transition, connect this paragraph’s support to the thesis=topic sentence People, who undergo cosmetic procedures just because they think they have to,becauseother people had it done and because they think they have to keep up, are most likely not satisfied with the outcome. Cloud (2009) puts this statement to the test by saying that cosmetic surgery does not always make the person feel better. His article also points out that through different studies concluded in different countries, that women who get breast implants commit suicide at a much higher rate than women without those procedures, even so you(can’t use “you”) could say that women who undergo those procedures are already depressed to a certain level before the procedure.
ETHICS CASE STUDY BRANDI M C UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIX In healthcare many things go off of ethics, every healthcare worker has to understand that. In this case study Jerry Mccall has to decide whether to call in a medication refill without consulting the doctor first. Many things need to be considered like legal consequences, patient complications, consequences for Dr. Williams. All of these could have grave consequences for Jerry. In this case study Jerry Mccall takes a call asking for a prescription refill, the person requesting the refill isn’t a normal patient of Dr. Williams he states he is a close friend.
On the other hand opponents of assisted suicide do not believe this is the only way to secure a good health alternative. Opponents believe that it is important to make a patient feel comfortable and help them improve their quality of life not end life just because it is an option or that they may feel they are a burden to loved ones. Assisted suicide can be performed by a physician or a person who is willing to help a patient end their life. This paper will focus on physician assisted suicide (PAS), this has been a controversial issue in many countries and have many different opinions on the ethics behind assisted suicide. To further examine the data the utilitarian ethics approach will be used.
47). Many people see nurses as compassionate caregivers, but the law doesn’t grant absolute protection for all free-willed acts of benevolence. If a nurse is asked to perform medical care on an individual outside of work in a non-emergency situation, he or she could be held liable if they injure that person. Although they may feel uncomfortable refusing to help, facing them in court could be much worse. As a nurse, advising them to pursue care from a professional who knows their medical history would be a smart thing to do.
Doctors who lack proper training or those who have impairment problems tend to believe that their patients are honest about issues concerning prescriptions. These may include certain issues such as losing prescriptions, or early refills. This, however, only happens when the doctor fails to identify a drug abuse problem in the patient. Another ethical dilemma in the same field occurs when doctors do not disclose full patient history in the medical file of the patient. This may cause other doctors to prescribe the wrong drug thus putting the life of the patient at risk, either due to possible
I believe when they are on it too long, the brain develops wrong and can cripple them mentally in the long run. I feel that some doctors have a lack of understanding on these conditions and just give out medication to hopefully fix the problem, only in the short term. People need to learn to cope with their problems without
