Nrs-437v module 5 dq 2 – ethical dilemma in healthcare..4
Health care providers have a moral obligation to provide for those entrusted in their care to the best of their abilities. This includes advocating for the needs of their patients while also adhering to applicable ethical standards when making decisions regarding treatments and procedures etc.
At times this responsibility may conflict with other obligations such as providing economic stability or professional advancement. For example, if a provider is offered an opportunity which would be financially beneficial but could potentially harm their patient then they must choose between what is best for themselves versus what is best for the person in need of care.
Overall it is important that health-care providers maintain a balance between fulfilling their own interests and those of others so that both parties are appropriately served in accordance with their responsibilities. It can be difficult at times but by showing empathy towards all involved one can ensure that everyone’s rights/obligations are upheld thus helping to create a more equitable society where everyone’s wellbeing is taken into consideration whenever possible.
