Question description

ethical problem, about 600-700 words

Mary, the director of nursing at a regional blood bank, is concerned about the declining

number of blood donors. It’s May, and Mary knows that the approaching summer will 

mean increased demands for blood and decreased supplies, especially of rare blood

types. She is excited, therefore, when a large corporation offers to host a series of blood

drives at all of its locations, beginning at corporate headquarters. Soon after Mary and

her staff arrive at the corporate site, Mary hears a disturbance. Apparently, a nurse

named Peggy was drawing blood from a male donor with a very rare blood type when

the donor fondled her breast. Peggy jumped back and began to cry. Joe, a male

colleague, sprang to Peggy’s defense and told the donor to leave the premises. To

Mary’s horror, the male donor was a senior manager with the corporation. What is the

ethical dilemma in this case, and what values are in conflict? How should Mary deal

with Peggy, Joe, the donor, and representatives of the corporation?
