Research Summary and Ethical Considerations
The relationship between nurses and families is incredibly intricate. The intricacy of this relationship is shown whether the development is for a few hours in the emergency room or for a longer period of time in an intensive care unit or a skilled nursing unit. To understand the study reviewed for this paper it is important to understand family center care (FCC) and the concepts it enhances. Family care center (FCC) is an approach to the planning, delivery and evaluation of health care that is grounded in mutually beneficial partnerships among health care providers, patients, and families. It redefines the relationships in health care. It is where practitioners recognize the vital role that families play in ensuring the health and well being of infants, children, adolescents, and family members of all ages. They acknowledge that emotional, social, and developmental supports are integral components of health care. They promote the health and well being of individuals and families and restore dignity and control to them. Shapes policies, programs, facility design, and staff day-to-day interactions. It leads to better health outcomes and wiser allocation of resources, and greater patient and family satisfaction. ("What is patient- and family-centered health care?" 2010, para. 1) FCC concepts are based on respect and dignity where practitioners listen to and honor patient and family perspectives and choices.

...1.Delay recording and paying $5,000 in bills owed at the end of the year until the beginning of next year. Delaying the payment of $5,000 will overstate the net operating income by understating the expenses incurred during this year. Which will affect the Return on Investment during this year. If the expense in not billed then the ROI this year will be (30,800/140,000)= 22% but the expense is deducted from the operating income then the ROI becomes {(30,800-5,000)/140,000}= 18.42% which is less than the expected ROI (20%). 2.  Before year end, write down $3,000 in store inventory (nonperishable emergency flood supplies) to zero value because had not sold all year. This will decrease the investment by $3000 which will result in understated investment. So the ROI will become {30,800/(140,000-3,000)}= 22.5% instead of 18.32%. This will help Ryan to get bonus this year and increase the chance of getting more return on investment from stores next year. These actions are unethical in accordance to IMA’s Statement of Ethical Professional Practice. The reasons are stated below: This practice hampers the “Integrity” standard of the professional. The standard states that “ Abtain from engaging in or supporting any activity that might discredit the profession” and also “Credibility” which is ‘Communicate information fairly and objectively’. The scenerio also violates the standard of “Competence” which states that ‘Provide decisions support information and recommendations......

... clients have many areas of hindrance, due to the sensitiveness of the discussions. The authors established the significance of the study by elaborating on the extreme sensitivities of ACP, and how it impacts healthcare professionals. When having these end-of-life discussions, generally it does not just involve the patient. It usually involves the entire immediate family; that allows for the whole family is fully aware of their loved ones wishes. When the healthcare professional are discussing advanced care planning, they are not only explaining what it entails it to the patient and family members, but answering all questions regarding it as well. The purpose of the study was to explore the perceptions of general practitioners, and district nurses who have experiences in advanced care planning, focusing on hindrances in particular. There were no set questions that the participants were asked to answer. Each question depended on the participant’s response. These questions that could be used were derived from the findings. What is the hardest part of the discussion? Were there areas in which you felt ill prepared to discuss? What emotions do you experience, when having end of life discussions with clients? What ethical situations have you experienced, when questioning about end of life care? The purpose and research questions were related to the problem. They explored the experiences and emotions of the healthcare professionals involved in the study. The qualitative and...

...Legal and Ethical Consideration in Healthcare A1. Addendum Addendum: Access to Information: Shadow Chart Policies Shadow charts are used to gather information for ancillary department that need to access some of part of a patients file. All informations in shadow charts should be copies and all original records should always remain in the patients primary chart. The patients main chart must contain the most up to date information and be available to any department that may need access to it. To accomplish this ancillary departments use shadow charts that contain copies of any information they may need. Shadow charts should be maintains with the same safety and security as a primary chart and must be kept in locked files with access limited to authorized personnel. A2. Information Technology Staff It is the responsibility of Information Technology (IT) staff to educate the clinical staff on ways to diminish security breaches by securing their workstations when they are not being used. Teaching clinical staff the importance of not sharing passwords and securing stations will greatly help security.

...Effects of Isolation on Patients with MRSA Jeffrey W. Lyter Grand Canyon University: NRS 433 August 2, 2013 Effects of Isolation on Patients with MRSA Methicillin-resistance Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has become a dangerous and common occurrence within the healthcare setting. The methods to prevent the spread of MRSA infection are well known such as: covering wounds, cleaning hands, not sharing of personal items and maintaining a clean environment are well established (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2010). This, however, can subject patients to decreased contact with medical staff, treatment times, and use to facilities and equipment for rehabilitation. Patients in isolation often develop feelings of seclusion and depression. Nursing staff faced with increasing time constraints and responsibilities may also find donning of personal protective equipment (PPE), each time when entering a patients room, unreasonable and frustrating. While the current methods of isolation have proven effective and best practice, it is imperative to acknowledge and be mindful to the potentially adverse effects that accompany the isolating patients with MRSA. Examination of the study, “Patient experience of source isolation: Lessons for clinical practice”, will reveal the issues, methods, implications and ethical concerns familiar with patients isolated due to MRSA. Research Summary The mounting rates of MRSA infections reported worldwide have prompted the...

...Research Study and Ethical Considerations Research Study and Ethical Considerations There have been many cases which individuals have gone under surgery to improve their looks. Physician Malpractice is an area that has gone under scrutiny because the deaths of famous artist and movies star. As malpractices are beginning to unfold, society has come to realization that it is a major issue. Ethical issues that involve physicians who are not licensed to perform certain procedures and prescribing unpredictable amount medications to patients, which in fact, leads to death. These deaths raised concerns from licensed physicians capable to provide that service, but individuals are very skeptical these days to even consider many practices. Ethical Considerations As cases unravel, women, whom more are accepting in changing their appearance; have viewed ethical issues to relate to malpractices. According to "Legal-Medical-Ethical Issues" (2003), “A physician is civilly liable for his actions; the law is that tort negligence by the physicians may be punishable by dollar damages. Also, the physician may be criminally liable. Physicians owe a special allegiance to their patients. The usual basis of a professional liability claim is negligence; the physician has a legal duty; when the actions of such physician did not fulfill such duty harm may reset. Negligence is established by showing that without the physician’s actions, or inactions, the result would not have occurred...

Consideration

...Chris promises Dina $40,000 if she graduates from Eagle College. Dina enrolls in Eagle, attends full-time for four years, and graduates. When Dina asks Chris for $40,000, Chris says, “I don’t remember promising you $40,000. But if there was a promise, it’s not enforceable, because we didn’t bargain for it. And even if there was a promise that would otherwise be enforceable, I revoke it now.” Can Dina enforce Chris’s “promise”? Why or why not? Starting at the beginning we must determine if this is a promise, gift or contract. Consideration distinguishes contracts from gifts. For there to be a contract there must be something of value given in exchange for the promise. In this case, Chris promised $40,000 in exchange for Dina graduating from a specific college, Eagle College. There was apparently a discussion about it that prompted Dina to enroll in and complete the course of study at that school. For the contract to be legally binding, there must be legal sufficiency and adequacy of consideration (fairness). Both the degree and the cash have value in the eyes of the law. We must however consider the fairness of the agreement, what value does Chris get from Dina’s completing school? Uncertain performance is related to promises exchanged when the performance of both parties is uncertain. Unfortunately for Dina, a promise is illusory. Illusory means based on illusion/not real. We should consider if a promissory estoppel could be put into place to enforce the...

Consideration

...Consideration is one of the elements that are required to form a contract. In consideration, both parties must promise to give or do something for the other. (Note: if a contract is made by deed, then consideration is not needed.) In other word, consideration can be described as the mutual rights and promises made by the parties to a contract. This can be either a promise to do something that a person not legally obligated to do, or a promise not to do something that a person have the right to do (often, this means a promise not to file a lawsuit). There are a lot of rules that must be taken in order to govern consideration. One of them is consideration can be present or future, but not past. Present consideration is executed when the consideration is performed at the time the contract is made. As an example, Lin offers RM100.00 reward for the return of her lost handbag, if Alex finds the bag and returns it, Lin's consideration is executed. Meanwhile, future consideration will happen when there is an exchange of promises to perform acts in the future. For example, Mei promises to deliver goods to John at a future date and John promises to pay on delivery. If Mei does not deliver them, this is a breach of contract and John can sue. However, past consideration is not a valid consideration and has no legal value.  Past consideration arises when a promisee’s action has happened before the promisor made his promise. This can be proved in the Roscorla v. Thomas case. In this...

Consideration

...Consideration is considered to be the third element of contract law that needs to exist to form a contract. There is an exchange of promises between two parties a promisor and a promisee where each party either have a benefit or suffer a detriment, which is referred to be a consideration. Sir Frederick Pollock defined consideration as "An act or forebearance of one party, or the promise thereof, is the price for which the promise of the other is bought, and the promise thus given for value is enforceable" authorized by Lord Dunedin in Dunlop v Selfridge Ltd [1915] AC 847. In the sense of law, consideration should value something (Thomas v Thomas) (1842)and doesn’t include any promises of affection or feelings or other moral/gratuitous promises. Consideration can also be any type of advantage to the promisor while it often is an amount of money paid. Even though, there is an advantage or a disadvantage to either a promisor or the promisee, there are no exact amount or value. Until and unless there are some, courts aren’t bothered about the adequacy of the consideration as both parties are allowed to bargain their liberty of contract that’s good for themselves with no obstacles from courts. (Harvey, 2013). Consideration is a significant part of a lawfully enforceable contract, as the absence of it would restrict the law from enforcing the promises made by the promisor during an agreement made or contract formed. However, the existence of consideration doesn’t itself solve...

...Obesity is a big health problem across the nation and overweight rates have doubled among children and tripled among adolescents. Childhood obesity is a serious issues in children because these extra weight may cause health problem that were once seen only in adult population, it includes hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes and it also could lead to depression and low self- esteem. (Mayoclinic.org, 2014). The school based programs can play important role to prevent/ reduce these issues because school environment has important influence on children’s life and they spent many of their waking hours at school environments. School nurses has tremendous opportunity to make changes in the area of overweight and childhood obesity and many school nurses are not utilizing the situations because of the different reasons. This study addresses school nurse’s perceived barriers to weight-related issues. This paper will focus on the background of the study, method of study, results of the study, ethical considerations and how this study results applies to the nursing. A qualitative approach with the use of focus groups and discussion is how data was collected for this study. There were twenty two school nurses from three different school districts, ranging from suburban to rural areas for a total of seven focus groups. Each focus group session was led by a facilitator who introduced the topic questions, encouraged discussion, clarified responses and a second facilitator took...

...Research Summary and Ethical Guidelines: Person-Centered Interactions Grand Canyon University: NRS-433V 8/23/15 There is an increasing focus on person-centered care in the literature and in the clinical setting. It is proposed that utilizing a person-centered approach during medication related activities has the potential to improve patient experiences and outcomes. This research summary and ethical considerations analysis is based on the article published in the International Journal of Nursing Studies by Bolster & Manias in 2010 “Person-centered interactions between nurses and patients during medication activities in an acute hospital setting: Qualitative observation and interview study.” Background of Study Despite the known benefits of using a person-centered approach to medication related activities nurses continue to routinely use a task-based approach to medication related activities. Most patients have medications administered to them by a nurse while hospitalized. This provides the nurse multiple opportunities to provide education and person-centered care. This is significant to nursing because “previous research has shown that the relationship between the nurse and the patient including how the nurse provides information is critical to enhancing medication adherence and management” (Bolster & Manias, 2010). The objective of the study was to investigate the following scenario: “How do nurses and patients interact with each other...

...Research Summary and Ethical Considerations Grand Canyon University NSR-433 Professor Stone August 15, 2015 Research Summary and Ethical Considerations Type 2 Diabetes can be prevented with certain lifestyle changes such as increased physical activity, healthy dietary habits, and weight loss. However, A better understanding of what motivates lifestyle changes and the barriers that prevent the life style changes, especially among overweight individuals with risk of T2D was needed. The study, Motivators and barriers to exercise among adults with a high risk of type 2 diabetes – a qualitative study, was preformed to help fill this knowledge gap. The purpose of this study was to describe the motivators and barriers to exercise among subjects with a high risk of T2D. (Korkiakangas, 2010) Background of study While there was previous research study, the Finnish Diabetes Prevention Study, motivations and barriers to exercise with individuals with Type 2 Diabetes. Prior to this study, there was only one research study on motivation and barriers to exercise with individuals at risk for Type 2 Diabetes. The purpose of this current research study is to obtain more information and to identify and describe the motivators and barriers to exercise among subjects with a high risk of T2D. The obtained information will be used to develop content and methods for counseling. Nursing will be able to use this new developed content and methods for counseling to help guide the patient...

... ETHICAL CONSIDERATION Students Name: Instructors Name: Date Submitted: Introduction A research design defines the entire plan that one selects so as to incorporate the alternate components regarding a certain study in a logical and reasonable way (Vaus, 2006). Consequently, this paper shall try to assess the ethical consideration of research design basing on my opinion in safeguarding the estimation as well as opinions of the survey participants. A survey is a study concerning the uniqueness of a certain defined population through the gathering of information from a sample of people (Journal of glossary statistical terms, 2015).Thus; it is an unethical to disclose any information as well as opinion that a participant in a certain research discloses. In a research design, every participant is entitled to their views, and one should not be judged for stating what they feel like it’s true according to them. Every participant in a research design wants to be assured of their safety when responding to the design research questions. Therefore, in protecting these participants, it is always good to guarantee them that all the information given out will be kept in privacy. The participants will have to sign as well as commit their information with the relevant subject. Thus, this is because...

Ethical Consideration Reflection

...Ethical Considerations Reflection Paper University of Phoenix EDU/ 315 Equality is what I consider to be the primary ethical consideration for teachers in a K-8 setting. In order for children to receive the same education the teacher will need to treat each student in the same manner. According to Dictionary.com Equality is “the state or quality of being equal; correspondence in quantity, degree, value, rank, or ability” (Dictionary.com, 2011). If a teacher refrains from following the Florida educational ethical standards (6B- 1. 006 section 3, subsection G), which states that a teacher “shall not harass or discriminate against any student on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national or ethical origin, political beliefs, marital status, handicapping conditions, sexual orientation, or social and family background”, (Florida Department of Education, 2011) then the teacher will be written up and/ or terminated from their teaching position. Learning disabilities is one equal consideration teachers need to think about in their classroom. When a teacher treats a student with learning disabilities exactly as a student without learning disabilities it is unfair and discouraging to the disable student. Teachers should make accommodations for these students to equal the class work and expectations. Teachers can help all students in the class to understand and respect each individual no matter their learning disability by having library books read and...
