Question description

  1. The fairness or justice approach is concerned with ensuring that all persons receive equal treatment. It focuses on how fairly or unfairly actions distribute benefits and burdens among the members of a group. Discuss the fairness or justice approach related to the scenario below. Should the EMS providers transport this potentially ill but reluctant patient? Why, or why not? How does this relate to an ethical concern? Does the EMS agency have any ethical obligation as the emergency transport agency related to being fair or just? Support your answers.

    EMS personnel respond to a person who has become known as a “frequent flyer” that is homeless. As always, the patient is reluctant to be treated and after a few minutes becomes agitated. You follow your agency’s policy of making sure the patient demonstrates an understanding of his or her illness and understands the risks of refusing care. However, this time you observe the patient does not appear to be rational enough to refuse intervention. You begin to further assess the patient when your partner states that you should leave and tend to patients that are truly ill and need your help.

    Your response must be at least 200 words in length.
  2. Please ensure that the APA format is used, with the in-text citation not included in the 200-word essay. Ensure that following text book is included in the answer: Fallon, L.F., & Zgodzinski, E.J. (2012). Essentials of public health management (3rd ed.). Burlington, MA: Jones & Bartlett.
