Description

Presents ethical issues and case studies from the perspective of nurses

What should a nurse do when patients, family, and physicians have varying perspectives on what care should be provided? When and how should a nurse intervene to protect an elderly person from a hazardous living situation? Nurses have a compelling interest in ethics because of their unique position in the healthcare system. This text will help readers prepare for the ethical dilemmas of health care and participate in the debate about how health care should be delivered in today’s complex environment.
