I need an ethical dilemma for a 2-3 page paper for a 9 month old patient with Bronchiolitis for my Peds rotation . Can someone help me ?

I am not trying to be rude, but I find it supremely ironic that you are basically asking people to do your ethics homework for you. Coming up with your topic is part of your homework, so asking others to do that thinking for you is not the best idea.

First your screen name is "RNTommy" Are you a registered nurse or are you a student? You NEVER label yourself as an RN until you are licensed..ANYWHERE. As far as your homework..do it yourself.

I apologize if I stated my question incorrectly. I should have said I need ideas . I am having a difficult time with it.

I signed up for this sight today. I was not looking for anyone to do my homework. I worded it very poorly. I dont know how to use this sight. I used RN meaning Right Now Tommy. The RN is not behind my name.

I was going with the statement. "Should the child stay in the hospital or should the child child go home. The benefit of the child going home is the infant can have comfort and reduced anxiety with his mother. The risk is he could expose his older brother to his illness. ....mmm I was going along with that direction , but I'm getting stumped if I'm on the right track

I am not clear what you need. Does it need to be on the 9 month old? You stated it is a paper with an ethical dilemma. An ethical dilemma is.... a complex situation that often involves an apparent mental conflict between moral imperatives, in which to obey one would result in transgressing another.

How does admission versus non admission become an ethical dilemma?

What semester are you?

What do you know about bronchitis?

For an infant what are the risks?

There is more than admit or not admit

Is the baby living in a home of smokers?

Do the parents have the emotional maturity to care for the baby at home?

Does the baby need supplemental oxygen?

What are the risk factors for going home?

Have parents gotten the education to care for baby at home?

Families religious beliefs?

Do a little more research on your disease process and treatments and then try to come up with your ethical delimina

^This. Can you spin it so perhaps the dilemma is about someone with religious beliefs that differ on treating the patient?

Your faculty wants you to start thinking about ethics and conflicts in nursing now, because you'll encounter these things all the time in your work, and you'll need to know how to recognize them.

 

I suggest that you look around for some ethical problems or course material on the web, read at least six of them, and get a better idea of what "ethical dilemma" means. It doesn't mean, "Admit or not," generally speaking. Googling "ethical principals in nursing" will give you a bazillion hits, a number of them with examples. Do NOT copy them, of course - your faculty has plagiarism-detecting software that can find that in a New York minute. (Word to the wise)

 

Here's a little something to get you started.
