Military Nurse’s Dilemma Chi Tiet University of Michigan - Flint Nurses are a group of professionals who faces a variety of ethical dilemmas while working. Therefore, these dilemmas cannot only impact on their personalities but also affect their patients. However, ethical dilemmas are argumentative and difficult to deal with, so there is no “right” or “wrong” answer for them. In a military nurse’s dilemma, a military RN is ordered to force feeding a terrorist prisoner while he is undergoing interrogation, and the prisoner is on a hunger strike protesting. The nurse is torn, but fearing of reprisal if orders are disobeyed, so the nurse is appalled at the over-riding a patient’s wish by force feeding him agains his wish.
She was disappointed and angry at the fact that Connie didn’t help her out at church. This shows that the lack of a close family relationship will cause problems between family members. When you respect and value others, they will feel fortunate to have as their
And instead, they may wish to encourage the client to choose another alternative. Hence, in such cases, the practitioners faced the struggle between balancing their own value systems and their professional obligation as a social worker. The third ethical dilemma is when the social work practitioner overheard the conversation between the patient and her family members that the hospital staff has been verbally abusing the patient. However, the social work practitioner does not have any evidence to prove the abuse.
If I was a doctor would have talked to Vivian about wanting to be resuscitated or not. As well, we could clearly see that the research was hurting her so I probably would’ve stopped the research. Also, this movie relates to class readings about ethics because Dr. Posner was in the wrong for trying to resuscitate Vivian. He later figured out in that short time span that what he did was wrong.
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.
However, Mrs. Claus could not let it happen. Her sole focus was her husband’s well-being, and she knew pretty well that if he attempted delivering the gifts on a wheel chair, he would suffer an aggravation of the injuries due to the strain. She ordered him to stay in hospital and focus on getting
She sees the amount of pain Madame Ratignolle is in, how gruesome the scene is, and she makes the comment that she regrets attending the delivery. This serves as a lesson to Edna in many different ways. This was her first big realization that during her pregnancies and deliveries, she did not experience the real pain. Her pain was numbed by chloroform which played the role as an anesthetic. Edna then looks back at her feelings towards the birth of her children.
Throughout reading this argument I could not stop thinking about what the parents might be going through to see their dying daughter be poked and prodded like the way she was and how they felt to hear the doctors and nurses say there was nothing they could do. To hear that as a parent must be the worst thing to go through. However, the author decides to not include the feelings of the parents into her article and I feel that it might not be fair to portray the young couple as villains who did not care what their daughter was going through while they might have just been thinking that they did not want to lose her. I understand that they might have not been willing to participate in talking to a hospital ethicist after their daughter had passed on, but to even have a glimpse into the thought process of the parents really could have taken this article to the next level, in my
The husband decides everything for the protagonist and thinking it’s for her own good, but eventually his methods proves to worsen her illness, she can’t even write. She also has a brother, who is a doctor that doesn’t really help her on her sickness and just orders her to rest. The poor character has two family members that should be helping her, instead they are making her worse, even though that is not their intentions. In the story, she suffers from a mental breakdown after she obsesses over a wallpaper that consumes her every moment. She starts acting paranoid because of the things she is seeing in the yellow wallpaper.
Again, this doctor started to yell at me and say some offensive words to me. This kind of attitude made me cry, because I expected gynecologist to be kind, patient and friendly with girls that have never visited them. Truthfully, due to my emotional stress I even had no words to say. Later, when this nightmare has finished, I was asked to proceed to the doctor’s room for further directions. Thankfully, the nurse was so kind and she calmed me down and advised to visit another gynecologist at this center.
Family and group solidarity are important to the Hmong, yet they were forced to split apart during their journey to America. The Hmong also partook in ceremonies, dances, and sacrifices that were important to them and their religion, however, the doctors and other people were wary of these practices and didn’t condone them, especially when it came to patients such as Lia Lee. Lee’s doctors were constantly giving her shots, medicine, and feeding her through tubes. Her parents didn’t approve of this at all and thought that the medicines they were giving her was what was killing her.
Brady wanted someone to relate to and able to share what was going on in his mind. According to Mr. Dunham, the VA did not really care a whole lot. They kind of pushed his case aside and preceded to the next. That needs to be addressed and because it is heart wrenching to see the numbers and to see the deaths because of the fatal
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. It takes a great deal of courage for the Hmong people to instill their trust into something that is so foreign to them, but it is not until they do so that they can begin to grow and
In fact, it involves helping the relatives emotionally, as losing someone you love naturally invokes feelings of intense grief, sadness and anger. Learning about different psychological and therapeutic ways to console a mourning family in textbooks might be simple, but putting these methods in practice is more complicated. When Alexandre first started working at the funeral home, facing families gave him a lot of anxiety. For example, he would sweat excessively when talking to them and would often feel flustered. In addition, dealing with families also involves juggling the economic side of funeral services and possible ethical dilemmas.
I almost wonder if Gilman was trying to speak out facetiously through the story about how mistreatment of the mentally ill is a phenomenon that will continue to take place in the future. Furthermore, Jane was ill, and having been mistreated in her circumstance only made her existing condition and also the unpleasant topic for me worse. Looking at this story with Feminist theory in mind would be fitting, as her husband dismissed her voiced needs because he believed he knew what was best for her and she did not. I interpret this selection of text as sexism; though I’m sure he loved her very much, he was still controlling and believed she couldn’t think for herself for she was a woman.
