Warbritton, to patient Paul Faulconer. A medical review of the case was performed by Dr. Cupp who submitted several follow-up questions. Dr. Warbritton also responded to this complaint in writing, indicating that Mr. Faulconer's healthcare has obviously been very complicated. He has had multiple reasons for pain, and that pain medication has proven to be essential to Faulconer's care. Warbritton denied prescribing Oxycodone to Faulconer, even though this was suggested by the complainant who he claims has not had much, if any, dealings with Faulconer’s medical
First, patients have the right to choose what kind of treatment they get, and whether to get treatment or not. Because they have the right to die with dignity and in a humane way. They will get prolonged pain if they don’t die. Second, physician assisted suicide can take away burden of patient and their family. Because some patients feel emotionally, physically and financially drain members of the family because of their being sick.
The patient must be told what is to be done and why. It is essential to regard patient autonomy and his participation in health service so they could enhance their knowledge & complications about disease (12, 13). Hence, patient can accelerate his recovery by participating in decision making (1, 2). It is also a defence tool for hospital against claimants and it should have requirements, such as: presenting information to patient by attending physician, patient perception and authority, patient competency in decision making, and factors affecting on patient- physician interaction (3, 4).

It can be said that this is another flaw among the nursing model as it is important for a medical caretaker to face the most or least challenging patients. On the contrary, according to nursing assessment, it is adopted that he requires attention and it is the only reason that he hurt his roommates and medical caretaker physical. Whereas, it can be said that it is the unprofessional treatment or behaviour of the nursing caretaker to give enough attention to him to keep him satisfied and occupied.

An example of contributory negligence is when a patient does not fully disclose their medical history (“Contributory Negligence…”). If a patient does not fully disclose his/her medical history, then the doctor could prescribe something that could cause an allergic reaction, or treat him/her for something and end up harming them. There is a certain amount of responsibility that falls on the patient that he/she sometimes fails to do (“Contributory Negligence…”). Patients are responsible for informing the doctor of all their medical history, this is an important responsibility of the patient that he/she could fail to do. Patients could sue the doctor and take him/her to trial for an issue caused by the doctor.
Mr. Cole seems to favor autonomy, which is the right to make his own decision. I as his nurse must exercise my right of nonmalificence (duty to do no harm) especially if I feel that the patient is unstable. I feel that it is my duty to be honest with Mr. Cole (veracity) and let him aware of what can happen if he chooses to go home even though he is still coughing up blood. At the end of the day I am held accountable for the outcomes, whether they are good, bad or poor, so I must do my best to cover all bases not just for myself but more importantly for the patient. (Whitehead 2007) Sometimes the patients are not aware of the possible outcomes unless the outcomes are explained to them.
he problem within the workplace is hostility which can be toxic to the efficiency determination, and collaboration with the work environment. There has been a lot of tension with the coworkers and management staff because management has not demonstrated effective conflict resolution techniques. In the story Sheila has concerns because management has not intervened to alleviate the prevalent behavior of the hostile employee.

According to Egan (2006) he states that managing our emotions and the way we express them is part of social intelligence.
