The case study that I chose was from Nursing Ethics Journal is titled, The twins: a case study in ethical deliberation. This case presents a nurses perspective about nine year old, Roman Catholic, Hispanic twins, who survived a very difficult preterm birth and were in a persistent vegetative state since childbirth. The parents took care of the twins along with their four other children, but the growing demand of the twins was starting to take a toll on the parents, so they decided to place the twins in an institution. From the time that the twins were admitted to the institution, they have been frequently admitted to the hospital related to respiratory illnesses and urinary tract infection, which were a result of their deteriorating immune system. The nurse’s role was to obtain a do not resuscitate (DNR) order from the parents due to the doctors stating the twins have less than a year left to live, and “why prolong the inevitable?” (Freysteinson, 2009).
However, in Cortijo Nuevo there are a few chances to get a career because some parents do not have money to send their children to a high school or University. In Cortijo Nuevo there is only one Elementary School called Escuela primaria Nicolas Bravo, and there are less than 25 students per grade. Usually the same students go to Telesecundaria Jose Maria Luis Mora (middle school) for three years after they graduated from elementary school. Most of the students no longer enroll in a high school because the tuition is expensive and there is no money to pay for it. I was lucky because I would enrolled into Preparatoria Emiliano Zapata (high school) for one semester only.

Child birth is a very critical event in a women's life, and for her family as well. Imagine having to give birth to a child inside a lobby or waiting area. It's a horrible thought, but unfortunately this is a very real scenario that many underprivileged women in this world have to face. I have witnessed, first-hand, pregnant women giving birth in waiting areas while waiting to be attended by a physician. While I was working as a surveillance officer at Paropakar Maternity Hospital, a central government hospital for obstetrics and gynecology, I had the opportunity to see with my own eyes the dire state of maternal health conditions in my country.

Marissa and I arrived at the operation room one hour prior the surgery to observe the LPN and her trainee setting up the sterile instruments that were going to be used during the procedure.
