Cultural differences number one may entail language barriers; that in itself can make communication difficult. Cultural difference not only is focused on the patient, but on the provider as well. Providers in the states are so diverse and come from all over the country. In my experience with working with different cultured providers, some do not understand the American demeanor and can be very frank and straight forward because caring for a patient is strictly work to them. It is not in their culture to build personal relationships with the patients, they are just respected for their work and that is what they do.
Mr. Bartling remained on the ventilator until the time of his death on November 6, 1984. He had several medical illnesses and did not want the ventilator despite knowing that it being removed would speed his death. He repeatedly asked for it to be removed and when refused, he tried to remove it himself. He was then restrained to prevent him from removing it. I believe the hospital had no right to force him to have the ventilator.

Every time Mcmurphy asks if they could go on a field trip she would tell him that she must get permission from the doctor,and the patients on the ward. She made it impossible for McMurphy, and the other patients to do what they want. McMurphy asks her nicely if she could turn the volume of the music down, she told him that the older patients have nothing but the music. She does not care about the older patients she just wants to make everyone's life miserable. If she found out that any of the patients like something she would make sure it was removed, and if they hate it, she would have more of it.
In this research project, the nurse’s proved that they lacked evidence in their practice. They chose to believe it was acceptable to have omissions of medication for certain medications and diagnosis in patients than with others. In nursing, if a medication is prescribed as an order, you are to give it. If the patient is having a change in medication that requires you not give that medication i.e. low blood pressure for an anti-hypertensive or patient is lethargic and unable to swallow medication, you should be communicating these findings with your physicians to receive further directions.
Researcher failed to inform the participants about the benefits and risk of the experiment, the research procedures, and the reasons for the research. Doctors involved in this experiment also failed to give the appropriate treatment to the participants even after it was discovered that penicillin was the cure for syphilis. Participants had no idea of what was happening with their bodies. While they thought they were receiving treatment for their disease, doctors would just watch them die
Scenario 1—Asthma o What patient compliance issues are evident in this scenario? The patient compliance is the doctor telling the mother to take the medicine twice a day and use inhaler during emergencies. The doctor also stated to call for further questions. o What communication problems are contributing to the patient’s lack of compliance? The communication of the patients lack of compliance is that the mother did not call the doctor back to help clear up her questions and she jumped to conclusions and switched doctors and didn’t even try to get a hold of the doctor’s office for clarification.
The benefits of chemotherapy are that it can help to reduce pain and other problems caused by lung cancer. There are no DNR/DNI orders to be considered. The Physician Assistant believes that the patient should be notified but is not sure how the news will affect his wife and children. A utilitarian viewpoint may be used to sanction unfairness and the violation of the patient’s rights in order to sustain his happiness. The patient’s autonomy was in violation because he was not informed and has risked making a healthcare choice not reflective of his values or wishes.
Although Sandra was not conscious and could not make choices herself, the staff tried contacting her next of kin, when they were unreachable they took matters into their own hands to help Sandra. It was not noted in the case study what happened after medical attention was given to Sandra, but it was in good faith that the doctor choose to give Sandra medical attention right away due to the severity of her wounds. Dignity often rises from one person to the next and in this case I feel all three ethical principles were
Example | Strength | Weakness | Related Theory | Prevents confusion | Having an interpreter to communicate socially if the person is deaf or blind. | Not having an interpreter will make it so that they are unable to communicate socially, which will make them feel isolated and frustrated. | This can be related to Tuckman’s Theory of Group Interaction because the interpreter and blind or deaf person have to work as a team so that they can interact socially. | | Doctor explaining how a Patient should take their medicine. | If the patient has to take more than one type of medication at the same time; they will get confused if the Doctor hasn’t clearly explained how they should take it.
