any legal issues aside



For this assignment, create a PowerPoint presentation based on the following case studies.

Read the case studies and answer the following questions:


Apply Guido’s MORAL model to resolve the dilemma presented in the case study described in Ethical Scenario 4-3 on p. 48 which is titled, “When Care Appears Medically Inappropriate,” (Guido textbook 7th edition).

  • How might the nurses in this scenario respond to the physician’s request?
  • How would this scenario begin to cause moral distress among the nursing staff, and what are the positive actions that the nurses might begin to take to prevent moral distress?

Read the following case study and answer the following questions: “You be the Ethicist”, presented at the end of Chapter 3, p. 41, which starts, “Helga Wanglie…” (Guido textbook).

  • What are the compelling ethical rights that this case addresses?
  • Whose rights should take precedence?
  • How might the institutions’ organizational ethics policies have impacted the outcome of this case?
  • Leaving any legal issues aside, how would you have used ethical principles to decide the outcome of this case, if Helga Wanglie had continued to survive relying on life-sustaining measures?


Now, examine the same Helga Wanglie scenario from the perspective of health care policy.

  • How would you begin to evaluate the need for the policy and the possible support or lack of support for the policy from your peers, nursing management, and others who might be affected by the policy?
  • Do the 10 framework questions outlined by Malone in chapter 4 (Guido textbook, p. 50) assist in this process?
  • Create a proposal for the organization with possible guidelines, procedures, and policies to address the issues you have identified.
