Nursing term paper on:
Health Care: Ethical Dilemma

Number of Pages 4

Summary of the nursing paper:

4 pages in length. Carol took a one-month leave of absence rather suddenly; when she returned and resumed her regular nursing duties, there was nothing outwardly different about her but there was most definitely a change in the way many of her coworkers interacted with her. Shortly thereafter it was disclosed by some disgruntled employees that Carol had learned she was HIV positive and took the time off to make the ethical decision of whether she should continue working in the health care field. Patients soon learned of this and refused to let Carol come near them, fearful they would contract the disease merely by casual touch. Bowing to the pressure but fully behind Carol's presence as a nurse, hospital administrators decided to honor their commitment to patient care and let her go. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
