Moreover, patients’ attitudes and beliefs towards disability vary from culture to culture, which may affect the response to treatment. So, healthcare providers need to be sensitive and aware of different cultures because the lack of awareness on the many cultural beliefs and values may influence providers to make the wrong judgment. Thus, cultural competence is a significant element in the different fields of healthcare such as rehabilitation to meet with patients’ various needs, especially cultural. As a result, many facilities including rehabilitation are making the effort to educate and train their staff about diversity in order to recognize and avoid behaviors or suggestions that might be offensive to patients. Niemeir, Burnett, and Whittaker (2003) described in “Cultural Competence in the Multidisciplinary Rehabilitation Setting: Are we Falling Short of Meeting Needs?” about a Sudanese man, with a brain injury, who does not understand English and have strict religious practices, so the staff familiarized with the patient’s custom to understand his cultural views and the traditions of his country.

Autonomy is described as an individual’s right to self-governance around their care and the requirement of healthcare professionals to respect these decisions (Kirby et al. 2004).

In this situation there are key ethical and legal situations that arise from the treatment and transportation of Craig. As the police are now involved the paramedics have better assistance with the legal side of restraint however the ethical issues remain import and need to be managed correctly. The first issue raised is the physical restraint of the patient, even thought the police are present the paramedics could take a different approach to avoid the use of physical restraint. It could be argued that the physical restrain is necessary in this situation as the patient could be a danger to himself or others. NSW health (1) explains in there restraining policy that legally it is permitted to restrain a patient if the patient is posing a risk to themselves or others, they further explain that the restraint used should be reasonable only to control the current threat and that it only be used as a last resort.
Since nursing homes tend to provide care to a vulnerable population they can be taken advantage of, overlooked or mistreated by staff and with residents potentially underreporting these incidents due to fear of retaliation by staff identifies this as significant ethical issues among nursing homes. The use of restraints that restricts a resident, whether physical or chemical applies to the ethical considerations within a nursing home as it not only impacts the resident, it can affect staff members and other resident’s safety.

Continuity of care is an essential determinant of both quality of care and health outcome. Good indicators of continuity of care include likelihood of having regular doctor, and the organization of referral and feedback among providers and the same level of care and between levels of care.
