CASE STUDY 1 – NORNI AND JIM

Norni and Jim talked frankly about ageing and death long before either of them reached old age. They both agreed that they did not want to be kept alive artificially and that they would like to refuse treatment when they no longer had a good quality of life.

When Jim entered residential aged care he specified his wish which was recorded on his file. His wife had a medical power of attorney for him so that she could make decisions about his treatment if he was not able.

After a period of time his health worsened. He no longer knew his wife and suffered pain and discomfort. He suffered many chest infections.

After one particularly bad chest infection Norni spoke to Jim’s doctor and said that she no longer wanted his chest infections to be treated with antibiotics. The doctor knew Jim’s wishes and agreed that this was what he would have wanted.

His next chest infection was his last. He died peacefully and with dignity.

One of the personal care workers was heard to say in the staff room, ‘I can’t believe the doctor didn’t give Jim antibiotics. He would have been alive now if he had. That’s malpractice! His wife probably just wanted his money quicker.’

    1. How has the personal care worker breached ethical requirements?
    2. What would have been the ramifications if Jim had been given antibiotics against the instructions of his wife?
    3. How did the personal care worker’s values differ from those of Norni, Jim and the doctor?
    4. What action should be taken by the person who heard the personal care worker’s comments?

Norni is very sad after her husband’s death. She confides in you that she misses him terribly. She is glad that he is finally at peace but is also struggling with her decision to refuse treatment. She knows that is what Jim wanted but wishes he was still with her. She tells you that she can’t sleep at night and does not feel like eating at all. She thanks you for the care that you provided to Jim in his last weeks of life.

    1. What would you say to comfort Norni?

Norni is so thankful to you for all the support you have given to Jim and her that she presents you with Jim’s gold watch and says she wants you to have it. It is old and looks very valuable.

  1. Would it be a conflict of interest to accept this gift? Explain your answer.
  2. What would you say to Norni in regards to the gift she has offered?

CASE STUDY 2 – MAYA

Maya is an Aboriginal lady from the Kimberley region. She lives in a small, remote community but has recently entered an aged care facility as she is seriously ill with cancer. She is not expected to live more than a few months. The closest aged care facility that could take her was four hour’s drive from her home. The facility has only one male Aboriginal worker, Benny. The rest of the personal care workers are all female non-Aboriginal people. Most of the residents at the facility are not Aboriginal.

Maya does not settle well into the facility. She does not eat the food unless it has been brought to her from her family. She likes to chat with Benny and tells him that he is the only one who understands how she feels about being so far away from home. She will not let Benny assist her with tasks such as dressing and bathing, however, as he is male. She often refuses to shower.

Other residents have complained that Maya is rude and often ignores them, and never looks them in the face. They also say she is dirty and they do not want to associate with her.

    1. What issues does Maya face regarding communication with staff?
    2. What issues does Maya face in communication with other residents?
    3. What assistance can Benny give to other staff to assist them to communicate with Maya?
    4. Is Maya being rude when she doesn’t look people in the face when talking to them? Explain your answer.

Benny explains the process that will happen when Maya is near death. Various members of her family will gather to be with her. On her death they will conduct a smoking ceremony to purify the room and remove bad spirits. The body will then be taken back to her homeland to be buried.

The health and safety officer says that he understands this is Maya’s custom, but the smoking ceremony cannot be undertaken in her room. This would set off the smoke detectors and other residents may complain about the smoke. He suggests they do the smoking ceremony when her body is back at home.

Benny rolls his eyes and walks out of the room in disgust.

  1. What are Maya’s rights to the smoking ceremony?
  2. List two things that Benny can do to support Maya to ensure that her rights are met.
  3. List three things that Benny and the health and safety officer should do to resolve their differences.

CASE STUDY 3 – MARIA AND MARCUS

Maria and Marcus work with people with disabilities in respite care. Recently Maria asked her friend and work colleague, Marcus, what is the matter. He has been very pre-occupied lately and it is starting to show in his work. He is short with the clients and really lost his cool when two of the clients were arguing at lunch time. Maria has also noticed that he seems to be distancing himself from the clients sometimes. Yesterday Keith was getting very frustrated when he couldn’t do up his buttons – normally Marcus is very good with Keith and takes time to talk to him and reduce his frustration levels but yesterday Marcus just walked out of the room and told Keith to get Maria to help him.

Marcus decides to confide in Maria but makes her promise not to tell anyone what has happened. He has been charged with assault following a pub brawl which resulted in the person being seriously injured. He has spoken to a lawyer who has advised that it will definitely go to court but it will be some time before his case is heard – probably more than 12 months. He insists it wasn’t his fault – the other guy was being an absolute idiot in the pub and pushed Marcus until he lost his temper and hit him.

Marcus is worried sick about what will happen when he has to go to court. But he is also worried about his job now. He knows he should declare the charges to his supervisor but he is sure that he will not be allowed to continue at work due to the seriousness of the charges. He needs the job so he will be able to show in court that his is gainfully employed, and also so he can pay for his legal costs.

Maria gives him a hug and feels very bad for Marcus. Marcus tells her that he is taking a week’s leave to sort things out and that Maria must keep it a secret. Maria knows she should not do that. It all seems very unfair and now she has a problem too.

Advise what you would do in Maria’s position.

James is a member of the local hospital board. His father is getting old and frail and has had some medical problems lately. The family is looking for a prioritised place in the local aged care facility. As member of the board, James will have some say in whether his father is offered a prioritised place or not.

    1. What is the problem in this case study?
    2. What should be done?

In this situation, nothing is done and James influences the board to approve the priority place for his father. He justifies his action by saying that his father was a clear priority and that the decision would have been the same whether he was on the board or not.

  1. If this is the case, has James and the rest of the board made an ethical decision? Why/why not?
  2. What should the rest of the board have done?

CASE STUDY 5 – HERRIOT

You are working in a community health service which is run in conjunction with a youth ‘drop-in’ program. known as Youth in Front. Herriot Malini is a 14-year-old girl who has been attending the program for some time. Herriot has a mild intellectual disability with sub-average intellectual functioning and lack of social skills. Herriot has a reputation for dishonesty including telling lies and stealing from others.

You have noticed lately that she has been withdrawn and subject to fits of temper. When you ask her if she is okay, she tells you that no, she is not okay and how would you feel if your mother’s boyfriend kept feeling you up?

As you talk to Herriot, she discloses that her mother’s boyfriend has touched her sexually on several occasions when her mother has been at work. She has now moved in with her grandmother to get away from him. Her mother went crazy when she found out she was living with Grandma and when she told her why she called her a ‘lying little b***h’.

She tells you that she wants the man locked up so he can’t hurt her anymore but she also tells you that she would be much too scared to talk to authorities about what has happened.

Herriot also says that her mother has no rights over her because she is not her real mother but only a guardian because her mother died when she was a baby.

  1. What legislation covers the protection of children against abuse in your state?
  2. Herriot has a reputation for lying. Does this mean you should decide whether or not she is telling the truth before reporting the allegation? How may the code of ethics assist you with this decision?
  3. Where can you find information about how to deal with allegations of client abuse inside and outside of your organisation?
  4. What guidance does a code of ethics give in relation to confidentiality in this case?
  5. Is Herriot right when she says her mother has no rights because she is not her real mother?
  6. You realise you will need to report this to your supervisor. When should you do this and what would you do if your supervisor was not available?
  7. What communication and interpersonal techniques would you use when talking with Herriot?
  8. You may have personal values that conflict with those of Herriot’s family. How would you deal with this?
