Gress’s position is not morally legitimate, and the ethical principles of nonmaleficence, beneficence, and autonomy render it morally wrong. Paternalism is strongly present in this situation: the patients were not asked whether or not they would like to be informed of the new information that their doctor acquired. Furthermore, Dr. Gress stated that he had “an obligation not to notify them” (Munson 328); however, doctors have a duty to tell even the unfortunate truths to their patients. What Dr. Gress decided was, “on the basis of his own values, that he knows what is best for another person” (Week 2 Ppt Slide 2). Also, he was denying the patients’ autonomy.
J Marion Sims history are just few examples of beyond control or abuse of freedom. We can also call this as lack of discipline or should I say unethical. After all this evil experimentation and research still they produce information that could help us treat our patient. For example we can describe the progression of disease of syphilis and from the works of Dr. J we develop instruments that greatly helped the women and even the infants. Since it leads the advancement of medicine we should use it and not hide or erase the recorded information.
I think it is the person 's job who is doing the treatment to fully explain all of the factors and risks that may happen before doing this treatment. If they do not, the treatment should not be done. But if you think about it, that is true with any surgery. There are many risks to every treatment that can cause different symptoms, so why would this treatment be any different? Also, the patients are put to sleep during the actual procedure, so they will not feel the seizures.
A nurse’s job is to make the patient feel comfortable and provide a friendly feel, which is difficult to do if hospitals and other medical facilities rely heavily on assisted suicide. According to the ANA, the procedure opposes “the ethical traditions of the profession”(Clair). The doctors are in a quite different situation. When you look in depth at the operation itself, many professionals imply that the doctor “are accessories of fact to homicide”(Clair). That means the doctor is assisting with the homicide because the patient’s death was only possible if the doctor contributed the needed drugs.
Malpractice is negligence, offense, or breach of duty by a professional individual that causes a patient to be injured. Much of the time, it includes when a nurse did not meet a standard of care or to deliver care that he or she should deliver in a similar situation. According to Standards of Practices “Standard 2: Responsibility and Accountability”, the nurses have to maintain, practice, respect and promote patient’s autonomy, as well as to provide care in a responsible and accountable manner. However, keeping the truth from a patient will not enable them to come to terms with their condition and give them the alternative for further treatment. Hence, it would be better to tell the patient the truth to guarantee that the nurse will not face any lawful issues unless the patient has a lack of decision-making capacity which could be caused by mental illnesses, such as dementia or being
And why do they have to ban just opioids when many other common drugs could have the same drug effects on people? To answer the first question, I would say the government has looked through this whole thing and just want to get rid of the opioids for the sake of them looking good. It was just all about getting rid of them to decrease the amount of opioid abuse and just giving the people who really need it other alternatives that look like they work because the alternatives they give are un-called for like a massage and therapy every day (seemingly impossible to do with the problem of having to go to work). To answer the second question, I believe they would say that opioids have the strongest effect on people other than all the other prescription drugs out
• The physician has suggested the wrong size of medication to the patient or the prescribed amount of medicine may be right but the nurse has given a wrong one. • The physician may have provided a high amount of sleeping drug to the patient without realizing his/her medical record or have not tell the patient about safety tips that can be considered. • The physician has employed substandard equipment or equipment during surgical operation. • All the way through surgery, the physician has treated the wrong side or could not take certain instruments out of the body. If a patient or suffered person experience medical negligence, the reason of bringing a compensation claim is not to safe him/her for what they are obliged rather the objective is to recover what a person gets damages in the shape of unemployment or loss of business that can contribute to loss of income according to the extent of the injuries and negligence that he/ she has dealt with.
The ideas behind this moral distinction is that in passive euthanasia the doctors are not actively killing anyone but they are just not saving the patients. Most people think that euthanasia can be justifiable, when the patients are facing incurable disease, undergoing suffer, terminally ill and requests for euthanasia as their last wishes. For instance, Somerville (2010) argued that it is important to respect the people’s right of self-determination and autonomy. In other words, people should have the right to choose their time of dying but the state have prevented and stop them from doing it.
I believe very strongly in acting in a trustworthy manner at all times. I think that to not have integrity is very detrimental not just from a social work standpoint but to any aspect of someone 's life. However when it comes to social work it is essential. We are working with clients to change their lives and if they can’t trust us they will not get what they need out of the services and there is a high chance that they will discontinue services. I also believe that integrity does not just relate to our own personal integrity but the integrity of the agency.
In circumstances where respect is not availed, it becomes impossible to achieve promising results. The society indeed taught me the essentiality attached to respecting others thus serving a source of encouragement, the consideration that I carefully examined before venturing into the nursing profession. It is natural that patients do need not only drugs but also respect for survival. In other words, it is difficult for someone who does not value others to find solace in nursing. For example, nurses are expected to respect the voice of the patients so that there can be a sort of understanding to facilitate better treatments and caregiving.
