MORAL DILEMMA #4
You arrive on a multi-vehicle accident. You note that an 18-year old male patient who is
unconscious with exsanguinating hemorrhage. You’ve managed to stop the severe
bleeding with a tourniquet (TQ) and Tranexamic Acid (TXA). Your medical director
allows you to administer a blood transfusion in the field for this patient. As you begin to
initiate this treatment/intervention, the patient’s mother is also on scene, in distress, and
states in a yelling (hysterical) manner, “You cannot give my son blood as it goes against
our religious beliefs!” What do you do and how do you feel about this? How do you
handle and/or address this situation? Why does this matter and/or is it important to you?
MORAL DILEMMA #5
You are at the station when a mother comes into the apparatus bay with her child who
is complaining of flu-like symptoms. Upon entering the patient compartment of the
ambulance, you ask the boy to remove his shirt and you notice a pattern of bruises on
the boy’s torso. You ask the mother where the bruises cam from, and she tells you that
they are from a procedure she performed on him known as “Cao Gio,” which is also
known as “coining.” The procedure involves rubbing warm oils or gels on a person’s
skin with a coin or other flat metal object. The mother explains that Cao Gio is used to
raise out bad blood, improve circulation, and healing. When you touch the boy’s back
with your stethoscope, he winces in pain from the bruises. You debate whether you
should call Child Protective Services (CPS) and report the mother. What do you do and
how do you feel about this? How do you handle and/or address this situation? Why
does this matter and/or is it important to you?
MORAL DILEMMA #6
You are dispatched to a University Residence Hall (Dorm) for a 20-year old male patient
for neck pain and flu-like symptoms. Based on your assessment, you are concerned
that the patient has a suspected bacterial meningitis and he refuses treatment and
transport to an appropriate level of care facility (hospital) and wants to stay at their
college dormitory. The patient tells you, “I’ll go to the Student Health Services to get
treated.” What do you do and how do you feel about this? How do you handle and/or
address this situation? Why does this matter and/or is it important to you?
