There is diversity even between families and the reason is because we are all different and unique. Health providers must have this in mind when attending people from different cultures. Avoiding to do so might cause mistakes and unfair treatment. Individuals go to health care providers in order to heal, however over the course of history injustice has happened in the health care system. By doing so it affected her personal belief she could have been cared for better, and also they failed to communicate and inform the family thus inflicting pain in them for years.
All nurses and healthcare professionals are obligated to help patients and to follow through on the desire to good and not harm them. The doctors and nurses in the study did not hold up their obligation to give the participants in the study the best treatment for their disease. Since penicillin was being used for the treatment of penicillin in the 1940s, the doctors and nurses should have given the participants of the study the penicillin according to the ethical principle of beneficence. Instead of giving the participants the penicillin, the doctors and nurses continued with the original ‘treatment’ even though they knew it would not cure the participants’
A big outcry has been heard from people as the Trump Administration decided to rollback the requirement that birth control coverage is mandated by employer-provided health insurances.Without this mandate, an employer has the choice to deny any birth control insurance coverage to women of their workforce based solely on their religious and moral beliefs. This affects thousands of women that rely on their company’s health insurance plan to provide a low-cost method to receiving birth control. Although this may conflict with the employer’s beliefs and moral system, women also use birth control for many other purposes: to control periods, acne, or even reducing the symptoms of serious health issues such as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. The argument against the

As mention in the straits times article by Mr Darius Lee, most of the parents think that adolescents are not mature enough to make decisions during emotional state and make choices without thinking about long-term consequences of their action. Furthermore, parents feel that parental consent is important for abortion as it is an invasive surgical procedure and parents can provide more medical details of the child whom is not mindful of their condition. The issue of abortion is impossible to solve. As a healthcare providers, they are encouraged to do good for the patients but due to certain circumstances they are unable to do good and required to do no harm to the patients. In Singapore Nursing Board under Standard of Practice Statement 3.6, to have critical and reflective thinking to improve the quality of nursing care.
Women have the moral right to choose what to do with their body. A woman should not be forced into motherhood because of an unwanted pregnancy. Denying a woman the right to choose to have an abortion will condemn her to be financially liable and take care of an unwanted child for 18 years. Many people who take the pro-life stance fail to acknowdledge the hardships and difficulties of motherhood. They argue that “babies should be saved” yet how they plan to save children from a rough and tumoltous life when 73% of women who have abortions do it because they are unable to afford and provide for a child and 48% would be single mothers; all factors that affect children’s development and progress in life (“U.S.
A controversial practice that invokes a debate over how beneficial its intentions are is the use of euthanasia. The argument switches between whether or not putting terminally ill patients to death with the assistance of a physician is justifiable and right. Legalizing the practice of euthanasia is a significant topic among many people in society, including doctors and nurses in the medical field, as it forces people to decide where to draw the line between relieving pain and simply killing. While some people see euthanasia as a way to helping a patient by eliminating their pain, it is completely rejected by others who see it as a method of killing. The word euthanasia is usually looked at with one of two completely different perspectives.
The biopsychosocial model is an extremely useful tool to physicians but it can also be argued that since its birth doctors have a more difficult job. With the old model, doctors simply had to consider the scientific matters. Now, doctors must probe deeper into a patient’s background. This may cause trouble for the physician as many patients complain when doctors want to take an extremely detailed history. Some patients fail to realise that this step is necessary for the doctor to make an accurate diagnosis.
Doctors need to listen to patient when they are telling what they feel are wrong with their health and bodies because the patient knows their body best. Many doctors think that patients do not have any knowledge about medicine and just ignore the important information from the patient and this is a really wrong thing to do because this can cause false diagnosis and medical errors. Simple thing such as when a patient enter the room, doctor should greet the patient with a welcoming tone then introduce himself/herself also make sure that him/her is pronouncing the patient’s name correctly should be done to show a basic respect. A doctor should treat every patient individually and also give every patient an undivided attention while listening to his or her problems to make the patients feel that the doctor really cares. A good doctor should be able to make the patient feel relaxed by treating them with patient and pay attention on small details such as avoid sitting too close or too far away from the patient.
Is The Twenty Week Abortion Ban Wrong? For many women who are pregnant, and anticipating the birth of their baby it can be a very exciting but a little scary. You have tests with the o.b. ultra sound’s, and blood work. Many hope for the best, while preparing for the babies birth.
In “Am I MS?” Miriamne Ara Krummel talks about her personal journey she endured dealing with multiple sclerosis. Krummel further explains at the end how she was finally able to accept her diagnosis and to embrace it. She finds that it’s important to be open about the disease. She believes that, “it might be helpful if more people would talk about death and dying as an intrinsic part of life” (76-77).When she was first diagnosed, she had a difficult time coping with MS. In fact, she at first denied that she could possibly have MS and like her family, were hoping that it was some kind of flu, until further testings’ at the hospital proved them wrong.
It really started to experience critical change in the mid 1960s (Rothman, 1991). Specifically, medical secrecy from physician to patient was slowly being cut off (Rothman, 1991). Sir Prescott Hewett once said, “It was not sufficient for a surgeon to be honest, he must be chivalrous” (Carter, 1900, p. 23). Everything now that physicians have to do has to be examined by an institutional review board (IRB) to make sure that that the potential benefits to the subject or patient outweighed the risks, and no self-calculated scale of these risks to benefits was made (Rothman, 1991). Our ethical medical problems craved attention.
Imagine that it takes a couple months instead of a couple days to get a cancer screening or the mammogram required for a certain age range. A man or woman fears that the doctor’s office will not accept their insurance and can’t pay the medical bill. A teen needs an STD test because he or she is unaware of the harms in sex. A pregnant woman needs a place to feel safe and not judged by her personal choices. Planned Parenthood gives each of these people what they need and provides the need in an efficient and timely manner.
Many things that the Hmong culture is accustom to are not very well excepted in the US culture. We see an example of ethnocentrism when Lia’s family tries to take home the placenta from the hospital. Though this is traditional for them the hospital does not find it appropriate and fears what could happen if they were to take the placenta. Though things are much different for the Lee family, we see a bit of cultural relativism in Lia’s mom when she makes the decision to have her baby at the medical center. Though this is a completely different experience for her, she has trust that the doctor are there to help her and that she will have a safe delivery.
