Throughout this paper, a wide range of ethical and legal conflicts are projected. This part of the paper will explain the defensible solutions to the conflicts so that it can be dealt better and it discusses the ethical principles that are meant to govern the environment and the moral dilemmas faced by the healthcare professionals in treating Elsie (King and Hauley, 2012).
The first solution is to take an informed consent. Most of the healthcare professionals make assumptions on the condition of the patient and hence, they do not give them the opportunity to give consent. At some other times, it happens that healthcare professionals do not reveal the process in detail, and hence, the consent is given partially which is in turn regarded as an advantage and utilized to treat the patient. All that Elsie knew in this case was that she is going to be relocated (Skloot, 2010). However, she never knew what would be done further. She never gave her consent and displayed stress even when she was informed about it. This is a situation where it is important to become professionally responsible.
The second resolution is to differentiate between ethical and legal aspects. As Elsie is in a critical state, the RN and paramedic believed that she will have to be treated immediately and that is the ethical aspect of this action. However, it is illegal to go against the patient’s wish as the patient has already informed in prior that she would not be interested in relocation (Backhaus, 2011). She also repeatedly said the same to all the professionals. Integrity is totally breached and both the healthcare professionals have engaged themselves in illegal situation throwing light on the ethical role (Townsend and Luck, 2013). Eventually, both ethics and legality are breached.
Elsie has clearly stated that she would not want aggressive treatment, but on Friday, she developed severe chest patient and it also led to unusual BP and pulse rates. It is the sole responsibility of the RN to treat it in house and there is no justification as to why the paramedical support and ambulance are required in this case. Not only did the RN fail to justify, the RN has also taken unprofessional decision out of poor judgment of the patient’s case. Eventually, it resulted in cardiac arrest and Elsie was found dead.
None of the instances taken by these professionals sounded morally right. When they regard one aspect of the case, they tend to fail on the legal perspective (King and Hauley, 2012).
