The Nazis were infamous for their cruel and unusual experiments on humans. The Nazi doctors did human experimentations which were series of medical experiments on a large numbers of prisoners, including children. These experiments took place in the concentration camps in the early 1940s, during World War II.After the war, these crimes were tried at what became known as the Nazi Doctor Trials, and the revulsion at the abuses perpetrated led to the development of the Nuremberg Code. Before the Nuremberg Code, Nazi doctors abused their power as a doctor, of a method of advancing medical and health knowledge by performing several crimes against humanity and as a result, there where many deaths.
DISCUSSION General awareness on informed consent is a reasonable physician standard. It is significance noting that medical paternalism occurs to some extent in most societies of India and other countries also and probably cannot be eliminated.(10) Medical practice is a moral practice and it requires doctors to make judgment on what is best for their patients. The limitations of this study include the potential for information bias. The respondent may be providing an anticipated response that is acceptable to the researcher, instead of reflecting the actual response in a real-life situation.
Great points there Antonio! I agree completely with you on this issue. I believe that it is important that we collect all the necessary information first before deciding to come to a rash decision as Aggy has. It seemed like her approach was very business oriented. While that is important, as pharmacists we have a duty to care for our patients as well.
“The more we do to you, the less you seem to believe we are doing it” (Joseph Mengele), is what the virtuous german people would think if they had been ready to give up hope. People of many races were targeted by the nazis for doing nothing wrong. The Nazis conducted experiments on subjects without consent from them and the weak races that became the targets not only panicked, but also lost their rights. Innocent people’s fate was becoming vague, as well as Germany becoming shrouded by a cloud of terror that developed from the violations of many people’s rights. With an iron fist ruling over Germany, the Nazi party abused their powers by taking away the people 's will when they introduced experimentations directed towards the weak and innocent,
The mental capacity of the patient should be considered in this case. The patient is under a huge amount of stress and pain which will most likely affect his mental capacity. Pain and trauma is can change a person’s viewpoint on the situation and in turn change their decision about the treatment that they want to receive. Religion has and always will play a big part in medicine. Many patients refuse treatment because it goes against their beliefs and later they die to the disease.
Lao-Tzu once said, “Life and death are one thread, the same line viewed from opposite sides.” While the safety of patients lives hang by a thread in the hand of a nurse anesthetist who only have a nursing degree in anesthetics, these certified registered nurse anesthetist’s (CRNA) are training hard, studying extra hours, and being shoved deeper into debt to be able to handle any anesthesia case with expertise. Nurse anesthetist should be allowed to practice without the supervision of a physician or anesthesiologist. There have been a number of court cases against the unsupervised practice of CRNA, and they were all dismissed in favor of the nurses. Nurse anesthetist is one of the oldest nursing specialties in the United States, and the schooling
Reflection 1 The Secret Life of Henrietta really reflects more than just advancement in the medical society, but also by how societal expectations and norms have changed over a period of time. Henrietta’s cells were taken without her permission’’’ and this wasn’t an uncommon practice during that time. The reason this wasn’t an uncommon practice can be contributed to factors such as race, class, gender, and the actual view of medicinal research at the time.
William A. Silverman’s Human Experimentation: A Guided Step into the Unknown, he encourages that we can do human experiments as long as it is a careful experimentation. He mentioned that randomized clinical trials that shows careful experimentation leads to effective therapy and a clearer understanding of clinical anomalies. With that being said, aside from effective therapies, clinical anomalies can be understood better through careful experimentation of randomized clinical studies, clinical anomalies can therefore be prevented (Silverman, 1985). Silverman has mentioned that human experimentation must be careful. He defined ‘being careful’ as being always reminded the codes and the laws that surrounds the field of experimentation using humans
In January of 2008, I began my LPN education at Fortis College. I worked diligently to maintain a 4.0 throughout nursing school; and accordingly, I was the class valedictorian. Passing the NCLEX exam in the summer of 2009 was my greatest accomplishment thus far. My education at Fortis included I.V. certification as well as CPR certification for medical professionals. Gaining my first nursing job was a challenge because almost every employer requires experience.
