The client the nurse looks after needs a liver transplant to survive. This client has been unemployed for several months and does not have insurance or enough money. A discussion of the ethics of this situation would primarily involve the principle:

  1. Responsibility because as a caregiver you are responsible for the well-being of that patient.
  2. Respect for autonomy, because the autonomy of this client is violated if he does not receive a liver transplant.
  3. Ethics of care because the care that a nurse could provide to this patient is a resource for a liver transplant.
  4. Justice, because the first and biggest issue in this situation is how to determine the fair distribution of resources.

54. The Code of Ethics for Nurses is prepared and published by:

  1. The National Nursing League
  2. American Nurses Association dies
  3. The American Medical Association dies

  4. Document any clinical changes in the medical record in a timely manner.

56. A successful ethical discussion depends on people having a clear sense of personal values. When many people share the same values, it may be possible to identify a philosophy of utilitarianism that proposes the following:

  1. The worth of people is determined solely by the leaders of the Unitarian Church.

  1. Consult with a professional ethics specialist to ensure that the process steps are completed.
  2. Gather all relevant information about the clinical, social, and spiritual aspects of the dilemma.
  3. List the ethical principles that inform the dilemma so that negotiations agree with the language of the discussion.

  4. Sr. Calista Roy
answers and justifications
  1. C.
  2. D. Without understanding one's own beliefs and values, a caregiver's bias or preconceived notions can create an unexpected conflict or area of ​​neglect in a client's care plan (who may have completely different expectations of care). During the assessment, the caregiver should identify values, beliefs, and practices and use these as a guide to identify caregiver decisions to address that client's specific needs/outcomes. Therefore, the identification of values, beliefs and practices allows the planning of meaningful and beneficial care specifically for that client.
  3. C.Cultural practices do not affect biocultural needs because they are innate risks related to a biological need rather than a learned cultural belief or practice.
  4. AN.Cross-cultural nursing means that by understanding and learning about specific cultural practices, the caregiver can incorporate these practices into the plan of care for a specific individual client who shares the same beliefs or practices to address the client's needs holistically.
  5. B. Without assessing and identifying cultural needs, the caregiver cannot begin to understand how these may affect the health issue or care management.
  6. D. It is not the responsibility of the family to assist in the communication process. Many families sometimes leave someone to help, but it is the hospital's legal obligation to find an interpreter for a better understanding of the client to ensure that the client is fully informed and understands in their native language.
  7. AN. This set of ethical principles represents the professional guidelines established by the ANA to maintain the highest standards of ideal conduct in practice. As a profession, the ANA wanted to establish rules and then incorporate guidelines for each nurse's accountability and responsibilities within the practice environment.
  8. B. The ethical problem was unequal treatment based solely on racial differences. Second, the drug was deliberately withheld even after results showed that the drug had cured the disease process in white men for many years. So, after many years, despite the result of the research process showing that the drug was effective in fighting the disease at the beginning of the research project, black men were still not treated. So the damage was done. Security, veracity, and justice were not followed.
  9. AN. Stereotyping an "old man" as "bad" is gender bias and an age issue. The nurse verbalizes a negative description of the client.
  10. C. Justice is defined as the fair distribution of resources. However, guidelines have been established for a hierarchy of needs, for example in organ transplantation. Nurses are reassigned to areas of greatest need when floors become congested. No floor is understaffed, and another five-staff floor gives up two to help the unstaffed floor.
  11. AN. Statutory law is created by the legislature. It creates statutes such as the NPA, which define the nurse's role and performance expectations, and explains what is contraindicated as guidelines for violating these norms.
  12. D. If the hospital does not follow ADA guidelines for accommodating special needs, the facility loses funding and low-income loan or expense reimbursement status. The ADA protects the civil rights of people with disabilities. This applies to both hospital customers and hospital staff. Privacy concerns for people who test positive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) have been a problem related to obtaining information when hospital staff have been exposed to dirty chopsticks. The ADA gives the infected customer the right to decide whether or not to disclose this information.
  13. C. Knowing what to do to avoid injuries is one of the standards of care that caregivers must follow. Safety guidelines call for raising the siderails, staying with the client, lowering the bed and observing the client until the area is safe. As a nurse, you know that these activities are basic safety precautions that prevent injury, and if you don't do them, you are not acting safely. Negligence is conduct that fails to meet a standard of care that protects others from an unreasonable risk of harm.
  14. D. Your signature as a witness only indicates that the person who signed the form was the person named in the case.
  15. AN. A guardian has been appointed by a court and is fully entitled to choose custody.
  16. AN. Anyone, of any age, can be treated for an STD infection without parental permission. The client is “recommended” to engage with their sexual partners, but is not “required” to provide names. Parental consent is not required under applicable data protection laws.
  17. B. The caretaker is responsible for clearing up any illegible, unreasonable, unsafe or incorrect requests. The fact that the nurse does not consult the doctor to obtain a prescription creates an area of ​​responsibility for the nurse, since this is perceived as a medical act and not as the nurse's attribution when prescribing. Some RNs have mandatory privileges based on advanced degrees and certifications. Therefore, the caregiver who is unable to correct the order must document that the physician was called and a clarification or new order was issued to correct the unclear or illegible order currently on file. Phone calls, follow-up care, and lack of follow-up care by the physician should also be documented if there are problems getting the information in a timely manner. The caregiver must clearly indicate the course of a situation when conflicts or doubts arise about inappropriate orders or procedures. Customer status assessments and documentation should also be included where there is a potential risk of damage. To demonstrate compliance with hospital policy responsibilities, the human resources chain contact must also be explicitly indicated.
  18. AN. When heat is applied for 1 hour or more, blood flow is reduced by reflex vasoconstriction. Vasoconstriction is the opposite of the desired effect of heat application.
  19. AN. In the rage phase of Kubler-Ross death phases, the individual resists the loss and may lash out at anyone and anything, in this case the nurse.
  20. C. Grief manifests itself in many ways that are unique to an individual and are based on personal experiences, cultural expectations, and spiritual beliefs. The sequence of grief stages or behaviors may occur sequentially, may be skipped, or may repeat. The time it takes to grieve also varies from person to person.
  21. D. It is helpful for the caregiver to find simple care activities that the family can do, such as B. feeding the client, washing the client's face, combing the client's hair, and completing the client's meal plan. This helps the family show their interest in the client and allows the client to feel their closeness and concern. an. Older adults often feel particularly lonely at night and may feel more secure if a family member stays by their bedside at night. The nurse must allow visitors to remain with terminally ill patients at any time if requested by the client. It is up to the family to determine if they are feeling overwhelmed, not the nurse.
  22. AN. Spending time with clients to share their life experiences allows the nurse to get to know clients better. Knowing the client facilitates the selection of therapies that encourage decision-making and client autonomy, thus promoting their self-esteem and dignity.
  23. D.
  24. D.
  25. C. The body of the deceased must be prepared before the family comes in to see it and say goodbye. This includes removing all appliances, hoses, supplies, and soiled bedding per protocol, bathing the client, applying clean sheets, and removing trash from the room.
  26. B. The objective of palliative care is the prevention, mitigation, relief or alleviation of symptoms or disorders without achieving a cure.
  27. AN.

  41. D.
  42. C.
  43. C.
  44. D.
  45. AN.Cultural awareness is an in-depth examination of a person's background, recognizing biases and prejudices and assumptions about other people.
  46. B.Cultural competence is the process of acquiring specific knowledge, skills and attitudes that ensure culturally congruent care.
  47. AN.
  48. AN.
  49. D.
  50. C.Differences in health outcomes between rich and poor illustrate the influence of socioeconomic factors on morbidity and mortality. Social factors such as poverty and lack of universal health insurance affect the health of the poor and unemployed.
  51. AN.Caregivers need not assume that pain relief is valued equally across all groups. A client whose cherished lifestyle is ignored by professionals may experience cultural distress.
  52. D. The dominant value of individual autonomy and self-determination in American society may be in direct conflict with many groups. Living wills, consent forms, and palliative care consents are examples of mandates that go against client values.
