IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION: The essence of a clinical dilemma is that there is no clear right or wrong answer or response. Using principles of medical ethics and the American Nurses Association code of ethics and one’s conscience are guidelines to successfully resolve the dilemmas that nurses will experience in practice.
Since Glenda has not been updated on John’s change of status, you call Glenda and communicate his critical condition
and his need to be intubated and placed on a ventilator. Glenda is clearly upset and states, “I need to see him! I need to be there! We’ve been married for 48 years and nothing has separated us! He needs me now more than ever!”
