The principle requires informed agreement of the patient before any investigation or treatment takes place (ANA). Children should still be informed, and we should get verbal consent for assessment, but a legal guardian must also give consent. Ethical issues often arise when caring for children with psychiatric disorders because they are a vulnerable population. The UN Conventions on the Rights of the Child and the Rights of Persons with Disabilities set out rights to be respected in child and adolescent psychiatric assessment and treatment.

As much as we’d like to think that discrimination within care settings did not exist, sadly it does and it’s an issue that affects many individuals each day. The government recognise that it is important to ensure that there are laws in place in order to ensure that people get the right treatment. The Equality Act 2010’ states that all individuals must be treated fairly and equally. This law is there to ensure that people are given care which meets their needs and is in their best interests.
If you do not actively follow the 5 care principles and actively promote anti discrimination. Health and social care professionals will then be drawn into the discrimination. Health and social care professionals need to discuss this with their manager or another person that they trust within the work setting. This is if the health and care professional does not feel that they, themselves cannot challenge the discrimination. Reporting also helps support it as this is challenging the anti discriminatory practice.
An effective complaints procedure ensures that the complaints are investigated and dealt with in accordance with The Local Authority Social Services and NHS Complaints Regulations 2009 and the complaints are taken seriously and treated with courtesy and respect and are thoroughly documented. This allows for appropriate action to be taken, for example in the case study, to safeguard the welfare of lucy and kevin. It is important for complaints to be recorded thoroughly and accurately as if legal proceedings start, lack of the documentation would undermine a case and make the defendant vulnerable. High standard, accurate and thorough documentation of complaints help address the failure in a duty of care, for example, if the social worker wanted
(Hogue & Prudhomme, 2012) Another point is documentation on a patient. There is a saying in the medical field if you didn’t document it didn’t happen, make sure as a case manager, everything you do is fully documented in the patient record. Develop habits that are good, you always want to document on a client when everything is fresh. It proves to the case manager’s credibility.
It also clarifies nursing values and development and allows for accountability. It involves patients in co-ordinated nursing care (Feo and Kitson, 2016). The Roper, Logan and Tierney model helps nurses to focus on patient care by following the fundamental rights of maintaining independence of the ADL’s without diminishing dignity. Recognising that their knowledge, attitudes and behaviour may be influenced by biological, psychological, sociocultural, environmental and politico-economic factors and respecting their decisions in such. Overcoming and preventing illness to maintain independence is the nurses key focus in delivering patient care which follows the direction of the RLT model of nursing (Roper, Logan and Tierney, 2001).
This is the method that the nurse practitioners can use to prevent this to be happened. The issue of patient quality of care and safety can impact a patient life the health care providers have to consider how important it is to assure
Patients have a right to privacy and non-interference. The healthcare professionals are obligated to give needed information to patients and relate the risks, and the benefits of a test/treatment. The detail information given will allow the patient to make the best decision on what he/she chooses to do. Hiding information about a diagnosis or not revealing the potential complications because a patient may refuse care seems unethical. Patients have the right to know about their health to make informed
Duty of care plays a major role for health professionals, Duty of care follows codes and principles put into action for facilities such as hospitals via external sources such as the Government, in order achieve one core goal which is to ensure that the patient is subject to the best possible care that can be given by the facility and the Health Professionals working at the health facility. Duty of care is defined as “the obligations placed on people in a certain way, in accordance with certain standards” Royal College of Nursing (2018), making it the obligation of the health professionals to not breach their Duty of Care. If the Duty of Care is breached or Health Professionals work outside of their scope of practice, the health and wellbeing
The NHS Constitution established the principles and values that are fundamental to service users on how appropriate clinical decisions are made for the delivery of quality care (Department of Health 2010). It provides explicit information for patients to understand their care, what to expect, and feel more empowered involving in their own care (DH 2010). The NHS constitution explains the behaviour expected from stakeholders such as staff, patients and the public (DH 2010). This prevent the government from making alteration and give the NHS complete autonomy and protection against political change without the full involvement of stakeholders to achieve transparency in the delivery of care (DH 2010).
This is because there are law requirements that protect someone in regards to human right act 1998, also health and social care act 2012 with alongside codes of practice for care workers, which this means care workers and health and social care should be based on a persons focused values in the interest in the client receiving care which makes them have a get better caring and feels dignity, Also to support to remain as independent as they can. , Person centred values also involves the person to be supported to access their rights, and also this means that ass well as providing anti-discrimination practices together and also promoting equal opportunity for the clients or individuals, it’s all for diverse staff who are involved in health and
One of the principles ethical dilemma I will experience with a client as a Human Service Professional is respecting the client 's right to freedom. Meaning that the client is eventually in charge of making his decisions and finding solutions to their problems. No matter if we agree with the client decisions. We must respect and provide the client with guidance and help clients explore their options. We cannot allow our beliefs and personal biases to influence the client.
As a Manager it is important to keep your skills, knowledge and practice up to date at all times and this can be achieved by using findings from research, critical reviews and enquiries regards social care. The care we provide must be safe and effective. By looking at the evidence, making a professional judgement, then applying the knowledge when making decisions regards your own practice, we can ensure the care we deliver is done so in a safe way and in a way we are able to account for our actions. It is important that you are able to pass any knowledge gained to your staff to ensure their work is also carried out in a safe and accountable way. It is important for all who work in social care to be able to apply their knowledge.
