When I was a graduate student in my clinical bioethics masters program I was rotating through a pediatric subspecialty, following a physician. The first half of the day was great. The doctor introduced me to patients, explained what was going on with them, explained his plans and his hopes for each patient. About two-thirds through one particular day he asked me for my stethoscope. I thought “Uh-oh, He doesn’t understand.” When I responded that I did not have one, he said “What kind of medical student are you.” I shrugged my shoulders.…

The Sky is Falling: How Much Do We Owe A Patient? http://www.bioethics.net/2016/01/the-sky-is-falling-how-much-do-we-owe-a-patient/ http://www.bioethics.net/2016/01/the-sky-is-falling-how-much-do-we-owe-a-patient/#comments Tue, 26 Jan 2016 21:13:42 +0000 http://www.bioethics.net/?p=57827 by Craig Klugman, Ph.D.

Imagine if a patient went sky diving without a parachute and survived. You fixed up her body and explained to her the dangers of her activities. You refer her to a program that offers free parachutes and trains people on how to use them. Upon discharge, she does the same thing again and ends up back in your hospital? Do you perform the same surgeris again? What if she does this 3 times? Four times? Is there a point at which we “give up” on patients when they consistently return for the same problem from the same cause after ignoring all advice?…

Ms. Clara [name changed] is one of our patient partners on a PCORI funded project. PCORI is unique in that they aim to include patients and other stakeholders in all stages of research—from conceptualization of projects and their aims to the dissemination of results. We’ve been working closely with Ms. Clara and other patient partners for almost two years now. A few months ago, when visiting Ms. Clara in the hospital, her eyes became teary and she exclaimed, “I love you guys.…

Professional Judgment and Justice: Equal Respect for the Professional Judgment of Critical-Care Physicians http://www.bioethics.net/2016/01/professional-judgment-and-justice-equal-respect-for-the-professional-judgment-of-critical-care-physicians/ http://www.bioethics.net/2016/01/professional-judgment-and-justice-equal-respect-for-the-professional-judgment-of-critical-care-physicians/#comments Wed, 13 Jan 2016 20:43:57 +0000 http://www.bioethics.net/?p=57705 by David Magnus, PhD and Norm Rizk, MD

This issue’s target article by Kirby (2016) raises an incredibly important and challenging set of issues: Whether, when, and how should limits be placed on patient access to intensive medical care? What are limits of shared decision making? Is bedside rationing ever appropriate? Kirby’s move away from bedside rationing to a mesolevel approach is novel and interesting. However, as some of the commentaries note, the question of whether there are limits to what will be offered to patients and their families often has to be made at the bedside.…

The new NBC medical drama Chicago Med premiered this week. A spin off of other established NBC dramas (Chicago Fire and Chicago PD), Chicago Med focuses on the working lives of health care professionals in a busy emergency department in the city of Chicago. Sound familiar? It should, because that was the premise of the hugely successful NBC series ER that premiered over 20 years ago in 1994 and launched the careers of several successful actors.…

Julianna Snow is a 5-year-old who suffers from Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a neurodegenerative illness. This is the most common of all inherited neurological disorders (about 1 in 2,500 people have it). The disease usually is noticed in adolescence or early adulthood. For Julianna, the disease affects not only movement but swallowing and breathing. She is subjected to NT suctioning every few hours to remove the mucus that accumulates. Her decline was rapid and severe. Michelle and Steve Snow have written extensive blogs about their experiences and conversations.…

I hate shopping for shoes – always have. Footwear was not the reason I chose nursing – but it sure made it nice, to be able to wear comfortable walking shoes without looking like you wore orthopedic shoes made for someone 90 years old. The world of white caps and starched uniforms disappeared long before I became a nurse. Even so, the shoes are still designed more for function than fashion: These are meant to be work shoes.…
