Question description

1. A young couple rushes into an emergency room carrying their young child who was hit by a car while playing in the road. The child has lost quite a bit of blood and will not live without a blood transfusion. When the doctor in the ER suggests the blood transfusion, the parents flatly refuse and begin to pray over their child. Their religious beliefs will not allow the transfusion to happen. As the hospital administrator, you are informed of the situation and are charged with making a decision on what the hospital’s next step should be. Should you simply allow the parents to forgo the blood transfusion, or should you obtain a court order to force the parents into allowing the transfusion to take place? Use the seven-step decision model to explain how you arrived at your answer.
Your response should be at least 200 words in length. You are required to use at least your textbook as source material for your response. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations.

2. You are working in the medical records office at a local hospital, and you notice that you run across some very disturbing information regarding the husband of your next door neighbor. It seems that he was diagnosed with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus). However, the record says that he asked his physician not to mention it to his wife. This particular neighbor also happens to be your best friend, and you begin to wonder just what he may be hiding from her, and why. As an employee of the hospital, you are required to keep all patients’ illnesses confidential. If you tell your friend about her husband, you could get fired. However, if you don’t tell her, she may end up with HIV, too. What would you do in such a situation, and what would be your reasoning behind your decision?
Your response should be at least 200 words in length.
