nursing For this week you will take the role of a human services professional working at a nursing home. Here is the ethical dilemma you face: THE PAGE OF THE BOOK ATTACHED
I like my patients, and take good care of them. So many are unable to take care of themselves and rely on the staff to take care of their day-to-day and moment-to-moment needs. Some don’t even know what to ask for. I take my job seriously and try to provide the best care I can in a compassionate manner.
I have a good friend, Gail, who desperately needed a job. She is a single parent with three young children. I recommended her for a job in this nursing home where I work. She was hired. To my surprise, I find that she does not take the job as seriously as I do. She cuts corners and does not feel responsible for the well being of her patients. When I tried to talk to her about it, she thought I was being too picky. So far, she has not been caught, and no one has been hurt.
