When you are a nurse you have to be compassionate for who you care for as well as understandable. Body Patients are not hospitalized because they want to be there they are in pain. However, many nurses are just giving out poor to bare minimum care (Peate 1). Just like Ian Peate is talking about in the article called, Kindness, caring
Experiments are still being performed with the problem amongst moral and ethical differences between the medical industry and society still growing. Doctors are to ensure the patient that s/he is in the being taken care of in the right way and effective to benefit them and their health. Yet Dr. Atogho Registered OB/GYN residing at the North Shore Medical Center, neglected to provide his patient the right care which caused severe injury to her child by using the “Kiwi Vacuum” instead of the following procedure and going with the cesarean, the patient child is now suffering from major brain damage
Sometimes, “a focus on the patient’s autobiography silences all other members in her family” and this can be as spontaneous as dangerous. Not only the risk of absorbing a single point of view implies the loss of important features that can come from others’ stories, but absolutizing one’s perspective is not fruitful in a strict sense. Of course, the patient knows better than others what she is going through, but her opinion might also be blurred by many other feelings, motives, and desires. For instance, the desire to make a good impression and “trying to be a good patient” in the doctor’s eyes, and to her family and closest friends. Sometimes, this is the last chance they feel they have “to do a good job” and perform well.
They speak only words, but no emotions and there is an absence of sympathy. Humanity is a problematic question in this situation, because doctors were trying to help their patients, and Vivian was among them, but she was not like a person with her own world, but only an experimental sample for tests, a piece of white paper for taking notes and studying her interesting disease.This system ironically sacrifices the well-being of individual patients, not necessarily with their full consent, for the research and professional interests of the physicians who appear to control it. They abuse the patients right for themselves so self-indulged in the increasing knowledge that is being retained and with no worry at no cost to them but at a considerable
Approved Topic selected from www.procon.org is Prescription Drug Ads My position on prescription drug ads is pro while I can see others being con with the topic selected I stand by my choice. A lot of the times people take for face value what they see or hear on ads, via television, radio, magazine etc. As consumers/patients we need to do our own research especially when it can be a life and death situation. A lot of the times certain things could be avoided if we only dug a little. These companies that make these ads are looking out for their financial stability and could care less if the patients that these drugs are being prescribed to are killed or left disabled.
First common dilemma a nurse face is confidentiality. It is not only a way of showing respect for a patient’s autonomy but also a way of showing professionalism in workplace. In addition, confidentiality is also a legal issue since there are many specific laws regarding to the release of information under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA. Another ethical issue relating to confidentiality is telling the truth or being honest with patients as well as their family. In most cases, families tend to withhold truthful information to protect patients from emotional distress.
Staff idealism With noble idealism of that doctors must do their duty of saving life and put the best interest of patient in mind, doctors will reconsider if their behaviors are in accordance to their own idealism. Although staff idealism cannot be created or imposed by managers, it does exist in organizations (Weinbach and Taylor, 2008), including hospitals. Serving as motivations, good idealism held by staff members can help to reduce the possibility of corruption. Managers must make sure that in the hospital, no one is laughing at those doctors who stick to their idealism and refuse corrupting, and reward those who have a strong sense of personal idealism. i.
Not many people would be brave to take a risk to be a volunteer in the experiments. However, people should be allowed to have operation because that is a very effective way that contributes to help scientist to develop new treatments for any diseases. For example, scientist have to do operation on human being at least one time so that they can figure out how the operation helps the patients out or what else need to be done more for their patients. If the scientists only have experiments on animal, they will never find out whether the treatment method that really works for people or not. The fact that human body and animals’ body are different and human body is more complicated than animals’ body.
The order was increased but even so Kim and Amy thought he dose was not appropriate. If the patient has expressed that comfort care is all she wants and she appears in pain, then are we really doing our job as nurses? Even if the dose of pain medication would slowly kill her, she would be out of pain. The ethics in nursing can be extremely complicated, therefore it is important to know where you stand on an issue and remind yourself to let that get in the way of your care. Nurses just want to care for their patients and make them comfortable.
Hospitals and other clinical environments with specialist medical equipment, is where treatment should be given and received. Doctors have power in the biomedical model and are also able to maintain it. Furthermore, this approach is supported by scientific research, much of which is impartial and proved beyond reasonable doubt. Some disadvantages however are, that patients are known not as the individual person they are, but as their diagnosis. Both patients and healthcare workers dislike the loss of the 'care factor ', as more emphasis is on the modern technology used.
