This preview shows page 2 out of 2 pages.

(HEW, 1979). To understand respect for persons, individuals’ autonomy is respected and those withdiminished autonomy are protected. Individuals should have the right to have their own opinion anddecisions. Providers should respect people who lack autonomy, such as individuals with mentaldisabilities, who require protection to ensure no harm is done. This also follows the principle ofbeneficence. Beneficence is the principle of “do no harm” and “one should not injure one personregardless of the benefits” (HEW, 1979). Though, risks do exist, so it is important to inform and explain allrisks and ensure harm is avoided. The last ethical principle to consider is justice. With fairness, allindividuals should be treated equally with according to individual need and effort.
