Ppt on Legal and Ethical Issues in Nursing

Code of Ethics for Nurses Purpose: • This is a concise statement of the ethical obligations and duties of each nurse • This is the non-negotiable ethical standard of the profession • It is an expression of nursing`s own understanding of its commitment to society. Legal Issues – Nursing Students • Liability if their actions harm a patient • Responsibility is shared by the instructor, Hospital and educational institution – “higher respondent”, meaning that the hospital will be held accountable for the actions of staff and students • Nursing students are expected to behave like professional LVNs – they are not subject to a lower standard of care • The LVN or RN assigned to the patient is always responsible for the patient. Legal Issues – Nursing Students • In order to minimize the student`s liability, the student should: a. Be prepared to provide the necessary care to assigned patients. Seek additional help or supervision in situations for which they do not feel sufficiently prepared. c. Adhere to the guidelines of the agency in which they acquire their experience. d. Follow Nursing School Guidelines and Definitions of Accountability Introduction: Universities are essential health promotion institutions (Dooris, 2012). Because they have their own different ethics and cultures, they can act as potential amplifiers of HP`s conceptual frameworks and interdisciplinary values such as equality, social justice, and sustainable growth (Dooris, 2017). Bioethics as a transversal discipline seeks to analyze and ethically systematize these values and to strengthen the synergy between health and sustainability (Garrafa, 2005). Background: Bioethics is a reflective, mutually shared and interdisciplinary tool whose aim is to promote health and sustainability in an integrated and coherent manner and to adapt life`s actions in their just and inclusive character. Materials and methods: transversal and exploratory-descriptive character and use of a quantitative-qualitative approach (Prodanov, 2013).

The population consists of university professors in Rio Grande do Sul/Brazil, random samples, for non-probabilistic convenience (openepi = 95% CI, n = 1400 people). Results: Beyond the formulation of principle – charity, non-malevolence, justice and respect for autonomy (Beauchamp & Childress, 1979), subordinate references such as solidarity, shared commitment and health, environment/sustainability have been evoked, which have a positive impact on HP, individual and collective well-being, quality of life, inclusion and social justice in academia. Bottom line: Higher education plays a fundamental role in HP for its faculty professors. Universities serve as places of research and learning in a way that stimulates the activities of the SP (OPAS, 2012). Bioethics as a transdisciplinary activity aims to help build skilled health interventions that maintain and promote well-being, cohesion, inclusion, sustainability and social justice with the appropriate conceptual clarity contained therein (Carlotto & Dinis, 2017; Dooris, 2017). Today`s society is based on a scientific and technological paradigm, with both positive and negative effects. There is an increase in the life expectancy of newborns, an increase in health care and health resources, as well as an increase in preterm births, low birth weight and impaired cognitive development of children, for example due to the intensive use of fossil fuels. This situation highlights the necessary public debate on the role of science and technology in society, the desired and undesirable effects on the process of human development and the socio-economic impact of science, its production and use.
