Use the appropriate APA style in-text citations and references for all resources utilized to answer the questions. Include at least three (3) scholarly sources to support your claims. 1500 words minimum; answers must thoroughly address the questions in a clear, concise manner. Include a title page and reference page in APA style. The case studies are posted below along with the questions. Please combine all of these responses into a single document. I have attached the case studies under Document
Here is the link of the textbook we are currently using (its an older version I found online) if needed: https://studydaddy.com/attachment/142099/Legal-and-Ethical-Issues-in-Nursing-6th-Edition-B00DU64Q3S.pdf
Case Study 1
1.) Read the case study presented at the end of Chapter 8 (Guido, p.133) which begins, The patient was hospitalized for extreme low back pain
Was there informed consent for the initial medications given to the patient?
How would you determine that informed consent had been given for the MRI and the medications needed for sedation for the test?
Was the informed consent deficient to the degree that there was a lack of informed consent for the patient for the second dose of medications?
How would you decide this case?
Case Study 2
2.) Read the case study presented at the end of Chapter 9 (Guido, p. 150) which begins, Jimmy, a Floridian, has undergone two liver transplants.:
What questions would you anticipate the judge to ask Jimmy to ascertain his level of maturity, understanding of the full consequences of his lack of action, and possible alternative reasons for requesting that he be allowed to make his own medical decisions?
How should the judge evaluate the mothers response to her sons request?
Does the state of residency factor into the judges decision?
Are there additional issues that should be addressed prior to deciding the outcome of this case?
How would you decide the case?
Case Study 3
What do you do about the informed consent form?
Who signs and why?
Using the MORAL model, decide the best course of action for Jimmy from an ethical perspective rather than a legal perspective.
Now decide the best course of action based on a purely legal perspective.
Did you come to the same conclusion using both an ethical and a legal approach?
