Brain death scenario | HLT-520

Write a 1,250-1,500 word paper in which you address the ethical and   legal application in the following scenario:

Scenario: You are a hospital administrator   who has been told by your ICU unit director of a patient in the unit   who has suffered serious brain damage from a car accident 2 days ago   and is currently intubated. The patient is 45 years old but does not   currently meet the criteria for complete brain death as defined by   Arizona state legislature “4-1107. Determination of Death and   Status; Rules.” The spouse of the patient has consulted with the   attending physician. The attending physician informed the spouse that   the patient could survive but would likely require life support. Half   of the family is insisting that the patient “wouldn’t want to   live this way” and the other half is accusing the other family   members of wanting to “kill” the patient. Some allegations   have been raised about a substantial inheritance for some family   members upon the patient’s death. The battle is becoming intense, and   it is beginning to disrupt the medical and nursing staff.

  1. Describe the medical care issues involved in this   situation.
  2. Explain which laws and regulations apply to this     situation. How would you interpret these laws and regulations when     making a decision?
  3. Describe the ethical issues that may     arise based on your decision as the administrator.
  4. Explain     how you can ensure appropriate implementation of supporting policies     and procedures in order to ensure ethical integrity.
  5. What     policies and procedures would you consider when making your     decision? How would you ensure these procedures were followed   correctly?
  6. What resources could you use to support your   decision?
