[B] Ok, I have a question for all the nurses out there. I am a nursing student in my last semester of school. We were given an assignment to research a pertinent legal or ethical issue in nursing. There are a few that interest me but I wanted some input from you guys. "What is the most prevelant ethical issue you encounter?" Thank you for your help, I will post the ideas I have brainstormed soon.

Anyone have any information on "slow codes"????... a fellow classmate. They are of course "off the books" She said that certain patients whose family kept them at full code status, or those without family, who were coding on a regular basis were given a slow motion code or late code...not saying I agree with it, and dont wanna know if anyone was involved in one, but is anyone else aware that this occurs?
