After reading the case study related to this assignment and other related articles and talking to co-workers, I realized there are many around us that ethical principle were somehow violated on them. Despite most nurses’ best efforts to make ethical decisions; they might not be able to make the right decision. As it was mentioned in the case study, nurses might feel their job will be jeopardized if they go against higher authorities’ will. If they lose their job, they cannot be useful for themselves or for other patients. This problem takes me back to the title of section three of doing the right thing, “if we know what is right, can we do it?...

Many patients feel that the nurses do not try to communicate with the patients or if they do they are not doing it well. The study in this resources purpose was to figure out how well nurses communication is with patients. The study shows that the there is an extreme lack of communication from nurses towards patients, leaving them feeling uncared for, scared, and unimportant.

The previous quotation proposes that nurses’ lack of communication is having a bad influence on the patients experience and their idea of security.

Nurses are here to care and nurture a patient and therefore
Ethics of caring places the nurse as the sole health care provider to deliver patient-centered care. Ethics of care includes caring for patients regardless of their views. If the nurse has issues with a certain cultural view the nurses need to recognize that and put them aside to be able to treat the patient impartially (C. Mead, A. Bursell, L. Ketelsen, 2006). This will allow the nurse to provide patient-centered care which will guide decision making to each patient’s unique situation. In the case of Mr. Sandoval, the nurse will be able to process the ethical dilemma to ensure the best care is provided.
