Applying an Ethical Decision-Making Model
As working in the medical field, the patient's safety and well being are most the
consideration for us. When we carry professional knowledge and skill, we also need to concern
how to apply our ethical standard to our practice to each patient. We need to think any situation
could harm the patient before our practice. As an advocate for the patient, ethical decision
making can be our scope of practice in the field.
State the ethical problem the policy aims to correct
Many ethical decisions making have some conflict. Many nurses have do-undo approach
situation. When the patient is dying from hospice, for example, the nurses struggle to continue
providing medications treatment or not. Some facility policy is not going to offer more treatment
related to hospice budget problem, but the nurse will feel guilty to see patient dying in
discomfort. The patient may have the fever, sacrum wound, or mucus in the lungs but we only
provide pain medication to the patient. Many nurses know if they contain more care for the
patient, and it may against the policy then chose not to do it.
Stakeholders' different perceptions of the problem is another problem the nurses deal
with most of the time. When the patient arrived in the ER, the ER nurse couldn't recognize the
patient's code status, but we still need to treat the patient as the full code. It may base on legality
rather than on ethics issue for ER nurse, but for the biggest benefit for each patient will be the
better. The good Samaritan law is the one design for good ethical practice for saving most of the
patient's life. So, the nurses won't feel bad when we practice right ethical way but may against
legal conflict.
