1. Case Study 1: In case study one, the first unethical issues I read in the case study was that the staff was required to administer the test, there was no consent or choice given to them. Also, the residents did not get a choice to take the test or not. The ethical principle that was violated was the informed consent. Also, the ethical principle of explaining assessment results to the residents after taking the test was violated because they were too informed as to why they were taking the test and what the results were and mean. Also, when the tests were done being administered to the residents the tests results were posted on the door of the administrator’s office where the results were out in the open and unprotected, for everyone to see. Another ethical violation is the principle of release of test data. Also, the nursing staff should not be administer the test because they are unqualified and not under any …show more content…
With supervision or training most of the violations would not be violations. Also, the School Psychologist needed to keep the testing score of the 7th grader a secret and not tell all of the school’s faculty members. Also, the informed consent should have been given to the 7th grader before he took the test and what the purpose of the test was four. After the School Psychologist looked over the test and figuring to the child’s score, the psychologist should have sat down and discussed the results with the 7th grader. And then discussed the next steps with the child instead of telling the faculty his score. Also, the psychologist should have never tried to persuade the school to using his assessment. And also an assessment should never be used after one child has taken it, the validity and reliability of the test cannot be determined after one person takes the

Nursing care is a dynamic field of practice. The way it looks today is far out greater intense and very structured. It advances itself by the use of nursing theories and evidence based practice. Policies and procedures constantly change with the advancement of technology and science. While caring for the patient in the given case studies, a nurse involved utilizes practical knowledge, a culture care model and transpersonal caring relationship to attain a caring environment (Smith & Parker, 2015).
The aim of this study is to provide a detailed account of the nursing care for a patient who is experiencing a breakdown in health. One aspect of their care will be discussed in relation to the nursing process. The model used to provide an individualised programme of care will be discussed and critically analysed.
The two major ethical considerations that are important to address are 9.02 - Use of Assessments and 9.06 - Interpreting Assessment Results. 9.02 - Use of Assessments is particularly important because the psychologist must consider the individual’s language preference and competence. As was noted in the initial case description, Brandon’s parents are both Polish immigrants, and Brandon spoke Polish in home until he attended junior kindergarten. Although he may not have an accent, his language preference should be noted as English may not be the language he is more comfortable using. 9.06 - Interpreting Assessment Results should also be considered. Brandon’s test-taking abilities should be highlighted, as he is suspicious and ambivalent towards the psychological testing. These feelings may negatively affect his test scores, as he may try to either hide how he truly feels, or lie to make himself seem better or worse. It should also be noted that there could be other client characteristics that affect his scores as well, particularly cultural factors.
Mrs. Wilson is seen in her room at Glenbridge Nursing Home on 02/28/2018. She had an episode last night of chest pain. She is so ebullient and distracted that it is hard to get a straight history, it came on when she was asleep but she may been sitting up. She was seen by a nurse, a sat was taken. I am not sure if there were other orders taken, but there is none on the chart. She says that she spent most of this morning in the bed and still feels tired, but she does not think she broke out in a sweat. She was more short of breath. She is calling it is a "stroke." I had tried to begin tapering her diazepam by discontinuing the morning dose and apparently all daytime clorazepate was discontinued by error and she gets it only at night.

The patient is an 84-year-old female who did stop her iron supplement, which she was taking for a history of iron deficiency anemia thought related to a Mallory-Weiss tear, which was seen on an EGD done in February 2015.

She does tell me her abdominal pain, increased stooling did go away, since that time, although, she does state today that several weeks ago she did have one further episode of it, but none since that time.
Donna is a registered nurse in the emergency room at Clinton Hospital. She actually went to West Boylston for high school and so did her kids. When she was fifteen she worked as a candy striper at Memorial where she wore a pink dress and pushed a cart with magazines and other stuff on it through the hospital and into the patients’ rooms for them. They don’t do that anymore due to HIPPA but my mom said she used to do it too. Donna then went on to become a CNA (certified nurses aid) at Oakdale for three years. She told me the woman who worked there was very caring and good at what she did. She would make all the meals homemade and gave the place a “homey” feel. The woman had liked Donna a lot and ended up giving her a small scholarship for college. This boosted her confidence since someone believed in her. Donna told me she didn't have a very good
