The four core ethical principles that are called into question in the movie “Miss Evers’ Boys” are autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, and justice. Autonomy refers to the right of the patient to function independently and the ability to self-direct. This means that patients are entitled to decide what will happen to them, and if deemed competent, they have the right to either consent to or refuse treatment. All nurses and healthcare personal would be required to respect the patient’s wishes, even if they do not agree with them. Beneficence is the core principle that refers to the act of ‘doing good’ and advocating for the patient.
Psoriasis nails usually have a horizontal white or yellow edge at the tip of the nail, known as distal schizophrenia, since the nail is lifted from the skin. Fingernails often have small pits, nails are often yellow and fragile. The same treatment for skin psoriasis is beneficial for nail psoriasis. However, due to slow nail growth, improvement may take some time to appear. Nail psoriasis can be treated with light therapy, systemic therapy (drugs throughout the body) and steroids (cream or injections).
This procedure can be done in a number of ways including transconjunctival blepharoplasty, where an incision is made on the interior of the eyelid and excess tissue and fat is removed, leaving no external, visible scar. Lower lid lift is also done via incision just below the lash line so excess skin can be removed as well. Upper blepharoplasty is done to correct heavy, drooping eyelids and involves incisions made in the eyelid crease in order to remove excess skin, and the removal of fat and extra tissue in the lids. Occasionally a brow lift will be done in conjunction with eyelid surgery as well, especially if the brow is adding to the amount of droop occurring with the upper eyelids. Laser blepharoplasty is the lower lid procedure done with a surgical laser instead of an actual scalpel.
Potential Ethical Dilemma: Health-care practice often encountered by an ethical dilemma of who is responsible for making the end-of-life decisions for the patient. Jamilah's case study presented many ethical conflicts; however, three major ethical dilemmas to consider: The lack of an advance directives, communication barriers, and the decision to provide comfort care based on the request of one son. Advance directives are critical documents to secure while a person is healthy so that their wishes are known to everyone. Bashir has no legal grounds to make medical decisions for his mother.

There are some disadvantages which consist of some removal of healthy tissue, could be painful, a high risk of infection, and time-consuming due to the fact that the dressings have to be changed often. On the other hand, there are advantages which are that it is cost effective because of the material and that the dressings which are being changed are simple enough for the patients to be able to change themselves (Swezey, 2015). Mechanical debridement is a form for wound debridement for large amount of necrotic debris but there are several other ones such as enzymatic debridement which is very similar. It utilizes a chemical agent that breaks down necrotic tissues. Enzymatic debridement also has its advantages and disadvantages.

This includes toothpaste made for smokers. High fluoride concentrations can not only remove the oxide layer on the implants, removing the anti-corrosive surface. Some fluorides, like stannous fluoride, can be rough on the implants, and might scratch the surface. As with natural teeth, patients with implants should use soft-headed toothbrushes; manual, electric, or sonic brushes are all acceptable options. Flossing should be done with unwaxed or implant floss to get the maximum cleaning while minimizing tissue damage.

Yes, I think the practice of having a Registered nurse on staff who cannot administer certain basic functions is ethical. Registered nurses who work in assisted living facilities specializes in geriatrics. The typical assisted living facility provides security, housekeeping and food services. While the people in this assignment are not able to live independently or with family, it is the duty of the family to ensure the facility they choose to place their loved ones provides the type of care the person will need. Therefore, it is important for them to visit skilled nursing facilities and find the appropriate one that would accommodate the need of their loved one as opposed to assisted living facility.
