From each of the scenario, please identify 3 themes/issue (i.e., 1 for each of law, ethics and values) that you will discuss in depth using the guidelines below. Indeed, each scenario highlights a lot of issues, but be mindful of the word count and your ability to discuss the issues with sufficient depth Scenario A Paul is 63-year-old fishmonger in East London. He was referred by his GP to the Memory clinic. Accompanied by his wife, Gemma, they told the doctor that Paul has been having ‘momentary lapses of memory’. There were a few occasions where Paul gave the wrong change to customers which is uncharacteristic of Paul. He has worked as a fishmonger since he was 16 years old and knows his business well. During Paul medical investigations, it turns out that Paul is now experiencing the onset of dementia. Gemma is very distressed during the conversation and has told the team that she is suffering from a range of medical issues as well (i.e., Diabetes and Hypertension). Incidentally, Paul is also referred to the cancer clinic because of an unusual lump found on his throat during the physical examination. When asked about support, Gemma said that they have an only son, but he lives in Thailand. She also did mention in passing that his son comes around every year and ‘taking money’ from them. She appears upset when asked further and refuses to share any further information about the issue. Scenario B Anne a 72-year-old lady was admitted into the Female Medical Unit. She was rushed into A&E by her family because of a recent fall. Based on the decision of the consultant, she was admitted for further investigations and monitoring. Anne only speaks Sylheti but understands rudimentary English according to her daughter, Fatima. On the ward, the nurses noticed that Anne is quite timid and ‘appears to say yes’ to all the procedures and questions of the nurses. The nurse refers to her as the ‘lovely Bengali’ during hand over. However, on day 3 of Anne’s admission, she appears distressed and distraught after the ward rounds. The nurse noticed that this happened after one of the doctors took her blood for testing. When asked, one of the other patients said, ‘Well he just took her arm and prick her arm. I’d be upset too!’. Scenario C Angela is admitted into the emergency obstetric unit because of profuse bleeding. She is 23 years old and was originally from Gambia. She arrived in the country just under a year ago. During her admission, the team found out that Angela currently has an asylum application to the Home Office. She also lives with her boyfriend, John. During her stay, Angela became comfortable with the nurses and told them that she is currently working on cash-on-hand basis. She also revealed to one of the nurses that she was ‘cut’ as a baby during a pelvic exam. Furthermore, during one of the visits from John, her boyfriend, the nurses notice a marked change in Angela’s behaviour. She would often close her curtains and remain unusually quiet around John. The team considered this as ‘odd’ but are not sure of how to proceed with this ‘oddity’. On day 5 of her admission, her case worker came around and is asking for updates and information about Angela including whether Angela has disclosed any other information apart from her medical information.
