    Ethics

    i have a hypothetical situation that I need input from other nurses. Let's say that there is an individual that has dementia, schizophrenia and has a legal guardian. This individual resides in an adult care home. the prescriber prescribes an LAI with the guardian's approval. The prescriber ask you as the nurse to give the injection monthly, but you have to lie to the patient and inform them that the shot is a "corticosteroids or another medication". when the patient ask if they can see the lab results that justifies the need for the shot, you are ordered to say i dont have it, but it is an ordered medication. patient is not having any active psychosis, not in crisis. as the nurse being ordered to give the injection, are you going to lie to your patient?
