Julio Carmona 9/18/17 HSC 305 In health care, values are something that a patient will most certainly look for when he or she enters a facility they want to feel like a patient not a dollar sign. Ethical values are something that a patient will more than likely demand because they are sick and the last thing they need is a dishonest doctor or a nurse who breaks the rules because he or she does not have respect for others. Let say Maria who is a nurse gives the patient she is caring for the wrong dosage but then decides she will keep it to herself because it wasn’t a large discrepancy in dosage. The patient then is discharged and is readmitted into intensive care for an overdose, at that point the nurse realizes she was dishonest. The situation could have gone very differently had she told the truth and used better judgement. Also, her being dishonest caused the patients well-being to be compromised.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
