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.
The prenatal diagnostics and prenatal screening being routine procedures should be considered as advantage of modern medicine. It helps to reveal wide spectrum of fetus abnormal conditions, but not only congenital defects and malformations. Early detection of many of them could help to perform surgical correction and necessary management as soon as possible in order to save newborns’ lives. On the other hand, this method is widely discussed and it has many opponents, and in some countries prenatal diagnostic procedures is not considered now as a screening method. Main ethical issues are terminations of pregnancies in case of malformations, which may be supposed as eugenical abortion, inform consent and problem of decision-making process.
Children don 't fully understand why their parents will always be around the newborn baby and not focus on them. Unfortunately, treatment such as this can lead to resenting other sibling(s) or trying to gain attention through fighting arguing or faking injuries and illnesses. Another example of unequal attention is with special needs or seriously ill children. When a child is born with a disability or diagnosed with a serious illness, all attention may need to be put on that child. According to Jennifer S. Pendley, who has a PhD in pediatric behavioral health,
They though it may result into an unsafe procedure and that the infant could be deformed. Several people are concerned about the safety of donated sperm, the confidentiality of sperm donors and the right of a child born as a result of donor sperm to know his or her complete parentage or the genetic or medical aspects of that parentage whether they could inherit a disease.

The procedure putting another extra clone gene to the mom’s womb and growing is not easy and sometimes it can cause moms and the child 's death. Because we want a clone baby doesn’t mean we want to kill the moms so it is irrelevant and hazardous. Peoples want to believe that we shouldn 't be afraid of cloning babies or having engineered baby, but however people connected to their religion and didn’t want to mess with their god(religion) so because of that most of the people didn’t want to accept this technology. As seen in the (Caplan’s) article, scientists are using CRISPR CAS9 to make a new engineered baby. This tool helps to edit genes in animals and insects and now it also works on human to modify their genes and to enter the new gene to make clone babies.the intriguing instance of genetic modification was that there is a lot of controversies and agreements in human cloning.
Stern was awarded custody, with Whitehead having visitation rights. At birth, Mary Beth Whitehead named Baby M. Sara Elizabeth Whitehead. She was later renamed Melissa Elizabeth Stern, after William Stern was awarded legal custody.” The case of Baby M led to blossoming hope across the world. Couples who weren’t able to conceive yearned to be parents and latched on the idea of surrogacy, but with the concept of surrogacy, and the complications it led to in the case of Baby M, came a concern for the ethicality of surrogacy.

An amount of the pediatricians aims are to reduce infants and child rate of deaths, promote healthy lifestyles and help ease the problems of children and adolescent chronic conditions. These physicians must to be able to communicate well with children and their parents, providing them detailed explanations of treatment, course options and assuage fears. Furthermore pediatricians can specialize in a different area, such as Neonatology. “Even that pediatricians can solve most health problems of newborns, a neonantologist is trained specifically to handle the most complex and high risk situations”(“How Do I Become A
THE ROLE OF THE MIDWIFE One of the principal roles of the midwife in hypnobirthing consists in explaining the pregnant woman and her partner evidence-based information related to the gestation and childbirth in the antenatal period. According to Philips-Moore (2012), one of the principal anxieties of the expecting couples, apart from the fear associated with terrible stories heard about birth, is the named ‘fear of the unknown’. The author states that it can be enormously reduced when a professional explains the birthing process and the methods that the woman can use to help her body in going through it. He highlights the importance of providing fathers or birth partners with explanations about the whole process and how ‘to be part of the
My second question relates to an intervention of the VAP bundle. In the mechanically intubated patient, how does the use of chlorhexidine mouthwash, compared to the use of alternative oral care products affect the VAP bundle? There has been a big push towards oral hygiene care in mechanically ventilated patients. Through evidenced-based practice, this single intervention could significantly change the outcome. “Oral hygiene care, using mouthwash, gel toothbrush, or combination, together with the aspiration of secretions may reduce the risk of VAP in these patients” (Shi, 2013, p. 3).
The organization has evolved to fighting the premature rate of birth” (Rose). The name of the organization may have changed, buts its fundamental mission has not. March of Dimes wants to insure the continuing health of infants and their mothers through research. You can find the March of Dimes chapters across the country. The mission of March of Dimes is simple.
It also suggests that, “within the hospital team nurses have the right to autonomy of judgement and decision and in conflicted situations, such as the one described here” (109). This means if the parents cannot come up with a definite answer, the nurses have the right to decide what is best for the child. Also, this article explains the conflicts when parents and medical staff disagree. Many problems can be caused by this issue such as, “what extent is it possible to scrutinize the way devoted parents should act” (108). Then, in another scholarly article, “The Role of The Pediatric Nurse in Promoting Pediatric Right to Consent,” gives specific characteristics that nurses should look for in children to determine how capable they are.
There has been a huge controversy concerning vaccination for children from many parents. Many parents had different reason on why they were for or against vaccination. Some for religious purposes, concerned about the long-term side effects. Most parents feel that vaccine is poison. The fact that doctors are injecting something into their child can be terrifying.
For either of these exceptions, one has to have a notarized affidavit for religious exception or a form from the medical staff as to the medical reason for the exception and if an outbreak occurs, exempted persons are not allowed to attend daycare, school, or their jobs. Is this taking away the rights of humans? Vaccinations are causing a major upsurge in childhood diseases and adult maladies. Every now and then an individual’s doctor calls telling them about the latest vaccine they should receive. The person immediately schedules a time to come in and get it done.
