The lesions in his skin continue to grow and multiply, despite all the care given by the hospital staff. This great discomfort only hardened his heart, and he became more and more difficult to please. He often called upon the nurses at odd hours of the day to demand attention. When they did not come to him with whatever he wanted on command, he would throw his bedpan out into the hallway. Neither did he have a problem with defecating all over the room when they could not please him.
Pharmacist may not be respected as much as physicians but they should be as their job is just as important in different ways. Pharmacist make medicine possible and just as a physician has a right to refuse procedures pharmacist should have the right to refuse medications. Issues arise every day in pharmacies that require the action of a pharmacist’s opinion and attention. However fear of using their power of pharmacological knowledge to make a proper decision pharmacist fear for repercussions that could take place if they are to refuse a medicine to a patient. There have been no cases presented in court that ruled in favor or in opposition of a pharmacist’s right to refuse a medication because of personal beliefs.
However a couple of states have provided that “CPR made be withheld from a patient if in the judgment of a treating physician an attempt to resuscitate would be medically futile.” These efforts are considered medically futile “if they cannot restore cardiac function to the position or to achieve the expressed goals of the informed patient.” However a guardian or surrogate of the patient is allowed to override the DNR. Ashley Bassel argues because the courts decided that futility issues are not to believe resolved in court there is a bioethical issue of who is able to make the decision to resolve this dispute. 90% of hospital has a full ethics committee or small team that supposed to perform an ethics consultation. According to the AMA the function of the committee should help to resolve unusual and complicated ethical problems that affect the care and treatment of patients. However whatever the ethic committees says are recommendations not obligations for the institution.

The story below is fake but it clearly shows that the dormitories in maple leaf international school boys’ campus have many serious problems that need to be solved. Some of the problems are tough, like repairing the beds or eliminating the smell of sewage.

In light of this, some people don't see anything wrong with a doctor prescribing a placebo.” The worst harm that taking a placebo do is ending up not working and the brain not sending out the chemicals that the brain were to if it were to take the actual pill. This probably just means that the brain just wouldn’t be able to work with placebos unless a doctor were to heavily convince you and help try to get them to work. So there is no right or wrong as to whether placebos do work or not, but it just depends on how your body works and how your body reacts to taking something that’s supposed to imitate a solution instead of taking the actual solution to the diagnosed problem. Placebos would cost less, this is true, but if your body can’t physically work taking placebos, then sadly you may just have to take the original drug, unless you had a doctor with some heavy
1). This is true to some extent, though the amount of patients that require medications is very low, but it should be even lower. When Espejo says the patient is being “harmed” he is really referring to the patient reverting to their behavior that caused them to be diagnosed, which scares some people. This of course causes them to want to solve it as any modern person does, through the marvel of modern medicine. Medicine, being a very effective form of treatment to some illnesses is not helping the process of treating patients with mental health issues.
