The absence of cultural competence often yields an uncomfortable situation for both the healthcare team and the patient in need (REF). Indeed, the potential for medical errors is greater when a lack of cultural competence exists. If the health care providers are unable to understand the patient, the delivery of care can be inconsistent,
If this is the case then donating the medications would be doing a lot more harm than good. As pharmacists, it is one of our duties to prevent harm and do the most good. With this being said even though it seems like Mr. Hawkins would be doing a good deed by donating the soon to expire medications to Dr. Petrov, I do not believe he should do
The article also presents questions that should arise when having the DNR conversation with patients and also explains the strengths and weaknesses of the DNR order.

Feldshuh includes Douglas’s description towards the importance of the study to signify the ease of justifying a cause; however it is intentional that Doctor Douglas does not reveal the true purpose of the study to the patients. Douglas has effectively begun dehumanizing the patients, he does not think the patients as being capable of understanding the importance of the study, and the risks associated. No efforts towards discussing the study or treatment are made with the patients, and Nurse Evers by supporting the study begins compromising her oath and her position as a nurse, as indicated by her
Barriers encountered by nurse include insufficient time and authority, limit knowledge and research searching skills, negative attitude toward EBP, also obstructed by traditional based practice. Organizational barriers include unsupported administration, inadequate resources and no platform for communication and cooperation. In research’s aspect, enormous amount of health care literature, unjustified and foreign language research become resistance to develop EBP. Also, there was a gap between research and practice. However, nurse and organization can acts as a role of facilitators to develop EBP.
But defenders of an ethic of care in leadership stress the need for caring versus curing as an antidote to medicine which is purely ends-focused. ?Caring defines nursing, as curing often defines medicine? (Lachman, 2012, p. 113). The nurse?s role is to support the needs of the patient in conjunction with the patient?s social, psychological, and physical framework rather than simply focus on curing illness. Care is not simply sentimentality but rather reflects the need to make nursing a practical discipline on an individual basis for each and every patient in a unique fashion (Woods
However, there are limitations to this approach. The major criticism was that the model looks at person-environment interactions as static phenomena. Therefore, the model is too linear or unidirectional in relationship that it does not consider the possibility that the individual also plays a role in changing the environment. (Lazarus &
The Medical Model finds issues though rigorous testing done by specialists and relies on a definite diagnosis of a patient who can then be treated with medical and rehab. It places disability in the category of an illness or an incapacity and can be very broad in its thinking. “With the medical model, the ‘problem’ is seen to lie with the person with the disability” and “the person is seen by this model as abnormal and remains so until the condition is cured” (E. Flood, 2013) The Medical Model looks at diagnosing problems they believe can be then medically treated and, further down the road, they look at rehabilitating ‘sufferers’ through medical means. Strengths; • “The most positive thing about the medical model
Johnson proposed as the most basic need physiological needs of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Needs is parallel to disease eradication outcome in health service; safety needs of Maslow’s hierarchy to patient performance outcome, esteem and love needs of Maslow’s hierarchy to general health outcome and self-actualization needs of Maslow’s hierarchy to patient satisfaction outcome, respectively. As this synthesis of two theories, Johnson proposed that as Maslow’s human needs hierarchy – once
According to Page-Reeves et al.,(2013), fear of cost is not something that the individuals with health insurance or adequate incomes experienced. The uninsured minority face health problem because they cannot afford to pay for health care. Many of them are not working and even managing to buy thing for their basic needs first than to think of health care, which results to health problems being untreated and undiagnosed at the earlier stage and can lead to chronic health problems. The predicament then will develops to more difficult health problems later on in
Gill argues that keeping a person healthy cannot be a physician’s only moral duty because in cases of terminal ill patients, they can no longer be treated or healed (372). If a physician’s only duty were to heal patients then they would not tend to the terminally ill because there would be nothing else that they could do, which is something that most people would find to be morally wrong (Gill, 373). No one would be okay with a doctor not helping a person at all who has received a terminal sentence. So instead of promoting health in this case, the physicians must find a way to reduce the suffering of the patient. This means that the physician should be able to reduce the suffering in the way that the patient asks for.

Another way Dr. Nemur and Dr. Strauss were not ethical was that they did not ask themselves the necessary questions before doing the procedure. According to the University of Washington School of Medicine 's paradigm of Ethics in Medicine, a doctor must ask themselves "Is the patient mentally capable and legally competent, and is there evidence of incapacity?" Legally competent means having the ability to make sound decisions regarding the legal aspects of an operation. Charlie, being a mentally disabled person, did not have the capabilities to make a reasonable conclusion. Conducting surgery on someone who is not mentally able to make sound decisions can be considered medical negligence.
