Assignment: Ethical and Legal Implications of Prescribing Drugs NURS 6521

What type of drug should you prescribe based on your patient’s diagnosis? How much of the drug should the patient receive? How often should the drug be administered? When should the drug not be prescribed? Are there individual patient factors that could create complications when taking the drug? Should you be prescribing drugs to this patient? How might different state regulations affect the prescribing of this drug to this patient?

These are some of the questions you might consider when selecting a treatment plan for a patient.

Ethical and Legal Implications of Prescribing Drugs

Ethical and Legal Implications on Stakeholders

It is a responsibility of a Nurse Practitioner (NP) to collect patient data by taking his or her medical history and conducting examination prior to initiating any prescription of medication. This move is essential for a NP to accurately diagnose the patient and offer an appropriate treatment plan (Rossi, Lipsey & Henry, 2018). In the case at hand, although the NP had autonomy to prescribe, the NP neither took patient history nor conducted physical examination, which is a contravention

of ethical principles. Besides, the NP ought to understand the move was against the laws and regulations that operate in Texas to guide the practice. Therefore, the NP risk facing legal implications should the patient report any adverse effects due to medical malpractice. On the other hand, the pharmacist has an ethical and legal obligation to provide education to patient on the right use of the any prescribed medication and their possible side effects before issuing the patient with the medication. Therefore, failure to do this may attract legal actions. The patient and the patient’s family on their side had a responsibility to report any adverse reaction to medication to the NP for proper action including change or discontinuation of medication.  Besides, they are allowed to initiate legal action against NP for negligence.

Strategies to Address Disclosure and Nondisclosure

In the present scenario, it is appropriate to report to the matter to the physician and consult on the best way forward. Essentially, in Texas, the NP is required to collaborate with physicians to form a relationship that fosters consultation and referral. However, many NPs do not trust this strategy for fear of possible loss of job since reporting such cases equal accepting committing illegal activities. Alternatively, the NP may rely on the statutory citation rule 413, which is a state apology law. This rule enables the NP to ask for pardon for contravening the standards rules of practice with a surety that such apology cannot be used against him or her in the court of law (Westrick & Jacob, 2016). In Texas, the statutory citation rule 413 is applicable as Tex. Civil Practice & Remedies Code Ann. §18.06. This rule is essential in enabling a better opportunity for the NP to indicate remorse and ask for forgiveness. Moreover, the NP stands a chance of legal action because this act is deemed as out of court settlement.

Strategies to Guide Decision Making

In this scenario, the NP made a mistake by failing to consider medical history of patient and prescribing controlled substance without being mindful of the potential occurrence of adverse effects. Therefore, if I was the advanced practice nurse, I would have conducted a detailed patient examination and consider the patient history to guide my action while prescribing the medication. Besides, the other strategy is to strictly rely on the Texas laws and regulations on prescription of controlled substance to guide decision making. For instance, I would work in collaboration with physician since NPs in Texas operates under restricted practice where they are required to form an agreement with supervising physician to be able to prescribe controlled substances (Lyapustina et al., 2016).

The Process of Writing Prescriptions Including Strategies to Minimize Medication Errors

Before writing prescription, it is advisable for the advanced nurse practitioner to first perform patient evaluation, diagnosis to identify the correct medical condition and the best medication for the condition. Consequently, according to Volpe, Melo, Aguiar, Pinho and Stival (2016), while providing hand written prescription, vital information such as date, patient’s name, address, and date of birth should be indicated. On the other hand, the prescriber’s name, contacts, and address should also be captured. Importantly, the medication name and associated details such as mechanisms of administration and dosages should be clearly stated.

Week 2: Cardiovascular System

Alterations of the cardiovascular system can cause serious adverse events and may lead to death when not treated in a timely and safe manner. Unfortunately, many patients with cardiovascular disorders are unaware until complications appear. In clinical settings, patients often present with symptoms of several cardiovascular disorders, making it essential for you, as the advanced practice nurse, to be able to recognize these symptoms and recommend appropriate drug treatment options.

This week, you examine the impact of patient factors that may lead to changes in pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes on patient drug therapy for cardiovascular disorders. You also explore ways to improve drug therapy plans for cardiovascular disorders based on patient factors and overall health needs.

Learning Objectives

Students will:

Analyze the influence of patient factors on pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes
Analyze the impact of changes in pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes on patient drug therapies
Evaluate drug therapy plans for cardiovascular disorders

NURS-6521 BREAKDOWN – SPRING 2022

Hello!

Welcome to Advanced Pharmacology. I am glad that I get to go along with you through this course. I know that I will learn from you, and hopefully, I will be able to pass on some of my experiences to you. I realize that some of you may be overwhelmed at the thought of the amount of material that we will be covering.  You might be saying “It is so much information in a short period of time!” “How will I ever get all of the work done?” The amount of material can be daunting, but remember, I am here to help you and make sure that everyone gets the most out of this class that they can.

You may have looked at the rubric regarding grading for both the Discussion posts as well as the Assignments that will be done during this course. I do follow both of these grading schematics. What I am looking for in both is as follows:

1. Content is very important to me, so I want you to make sure that your posts and writings for assignments are substantial and are from credible sources (i.e., textbook, publications, etc.). Sources such as drugs.com, Medscape.com, etc., can be used, but they CANNOT be the only sources you have. The latter are set up as information sites only and will not always be accurate.

2. In your discussions, as well as assignments, you should be focusing on the medication parts of the assignment. This is a pharmacology class, so I want you to be researching how the disease is treated, why those treatments the best for the specific disease state, what complications come from treatment, how to avert possible problems with treatment, how to deal with comorbidities during treatments, etc. This is not all inclusive, but some of the things I want you to be thinking about. This will help ensure that you will get the most out of this class and sharpen your reasoning skills as to why certain treatments are used once you are in practice.

3. Just because a Discussion post is longer, does not mean it is better in my estimation. I want you to be able to find the correct information and efficiently write your thoughts and opinions. Your assignments will be assessed in the same manner. The syllabus states that the assignments should be 2-3 pages, and you MUST adhere to this. I have multiple sections that I am teaching, and a 10-page paper is not necessary, and slows the efficiency of being able to get your works graded and back to you. There should be no reason that your thoughts, if written well, can’t be done in the 2-3-page limit!

4. If a discussion or assignment calls for a scenario that is assigned by me, I will post it in the announcement for that week. All of my announcements for the upcoming week come on the Sunday before the week starts.

Exams – You will have a midterm exam and a final exam. I will let you know when a review document has been posted in the resources so that you have access to this. The exams open on the Monday of the Week 7 for the midterm and Monday of Week 11 for the final. I cannot release them early, so please do not ask me to.

Grading – Grading is not a straight point total that you will see in your Blackboard. Each part of the class is weighted differently. The two exams are weighted differently, and in turn, have a bigger effect on your grade. Please refer to the grading part of the syllabus for a full explanation on this.

I do want you to know that I require professionalism for ALL interactions in the class, and this includes being on time with Discussions, as well as being present in the class 3 DIFFERENT DAYS OF THE WEEK and responding to 2 DIFFERENT CLASSMATES. You will find that I ask a lot of questions. This is not intended to give you more busy work, but instead, to pose critical thinking topics for you to research and learn more about so that you are better versed when you get into practice. I appreciate you answering the questions that I pose, as I think they do help in your learning. I really want everyone to interact with one another, so you MUST respond to at least 2 different classmates during the week. We learn best by not knowing everything, but using our knowledge, as well as our colleagues to treat our patients effectively and safely.

I do not think it is fair to post discussions or turn in assignments late, or not participate to the amount required in the syllabus. I urge you to be on time so that unnecessary points are not deducted. The goal of this class is to master the information, and if you are not participating, that will not happen.

Lastly, please use the discussion posts for their intended purpose. For example, the Contact the Instructor Discussion Board is for asking questions that pertain to the class and alerting me of things that may be beneficial to the class in general. THIS IS NOT A FORUM FOR PERSONAL ISSUES. I have had past students use this to describe why they did not get an assignment in on time, and this is not acceptable. If you need to contact me regarding a personal problem, the best way, and most efficient is through my email.

 

Assignments:

These MUST be turned in on time!

Note: If there is an emergency/life event that comes up, I will work with you, but I need to be made aware of these occurrences as soon as you know about them.

You will get out of this class what you put into it, and I am here to help guide you and make sure that you have a firm and definite understanding of Pharmacology.

As stated above, the best way to get a hold of me is by email. I have multiple sections that I am teaching, so when writing to me YOU MUST include the section number of the class you are in or your email may not be answered in a timely manner. This allows me to go to your specific section more efficiently.
