[SOLVED] You Have Been Working As A Nurse In The Adult Oncology Unit For The Past Year. You Have Developed A Close Relationship With Many Of Your Patients, But Mr. Newcomb Has A Special Place In Your Heart.

Mr. Newcomb


            In this paper, a case scenario will be evaluated to learn how nursing ethical principles, self-support and specialized responsibility can be practiced to encourage morally-recognized approaches for clinical verdicts. A modified stress control strategy would as well be established to create familiar coping approaches for individual health and safety.

            According to Nyström, et al (2019), the greatest concern in the clinical area nowadays is not the cost but for all that money, it is not an manifestation of the human kind.  The key concern in each and every health care service is the care of patients. Enhanced healthcare has been employed so as to protect patients’ health and contentment through excellent health services provided that will prepare them with competent, necessary as well as advanced individual care aid as possible. Nevertheless, as Trobec & Starcic (2015) stated, all-inclusive amenities and skill portrayed by healthcare personnel are not the only essential requirements to uphold life. Rather, life would be precious only if both health and medical care could be dealt with as one inclusive of a good rapport between patients and clinicians. Therefore, ethical standards and principles take on an important influence to shape the opportunities for noble medical outputs acknowledged through reliance, responsibility, communal respect, and ration therapeutic care.

            Advancements in science and technology have altered the context where medical checkups are given hence a rise in conflict through moral concerns and predicaments. This, therefore, uncovers the wants for the personnel through education on how to choose and react to practices within the health facilities that are ethically-challenged (Grant-Kels et al 2019).

            In the case of Mr. Newcomb, creates a discussion between professionalism and individual belief and values enhancement. It is quite difficult to detached nature and nurses’ insight of what is correct or incorrect, and what to be handled using the anticipated reaction nurses’ ought to take on for a professional accountability. At this point, several questions arise, for instance, is it ethically allowed for a nurse to get into his/her patient’s personal life, or hold on to a secret of extramarital issues having in mind that the patient’s wife has continuously had trust on you as a clinician? Otherwise is it morally right to refuse a client’s appeal regardless of its possible more advantage on his side and weakness of his right to independence, rather autonomy? Being a life and health promoter, it is essential for a nurse not to have exceptional defenses or giving his/her personal opinion concerning others’ morals. Instead, clinicians ought to air a justly moral assurance that will every time rank the overall happiness of the people that initially put them in the profession. Additionally, I would accept and concede Mr. Newcomb’s appeal as an ethical choice for clinical practice assimilating the codes of beneficence and non-maleficence, autonomy and justice (Epstein & Turner 2015).

            In this situation of permitting Mr. Newcomb to meet his mistress one last time is well thought-out to be ethically certified because as clinicians, one ought to be dedicated in assisting others using principles or slogans such as ‘not doing any harm but instead be of assistance’. When the nurse asked Mr. Newcomb if there was anything else he wanted the nurse to do for him and then he answered that prior to his death, he wished to see his mistress, this alone left a duty for the nurse to accomplish as part of her duty. Although the patient’s appeal was not in line with bodily treatment, the meeting would bring peace from within and a peaceful closure. This is an induced management for both emotional and social comfort.
