Provisions of ana code of ethics
Additionally – by opting for a more aggressive approach in order to meet the hospital’s deadline – the nurse is putting their own interests ahead of those they are responsible for caring for. This clearly goes against Provision 1 which states that nurses should prioritize patient safety above all else. Furthermore – by ignoring evidence-based practice, this nurse is neglecting their duty to provide competent services; thus violating Provision 5.
Ultimately – understanding and adhering to ethical standards such as those outlined in ANA’s code helps protect both patients and practitioners alike! By ensuring that all healthcare professionals abide by these guidelines, we can help ensure better outcomes and promote greater trust between individuals within our profession.
