Case Scenario Arnold Perera is an 87-year-old male who was admitted to hospital 2 weeks ago due to a syncopal episode. He fell down a flight of stairs and sustained a fractured neck of femur and multiple fractured ribs. He has a past medical history of hypertension, diabetes, and in the last 6 months, has experienced a functional decline. In the last month, he has needed to call on additional support. This was difficult for Arnold as he was a previously very independent person. He had recently completed an enduring medical power of attorney form, where he listed his daughter as his medical power of attorney. During his hospital stay, Arnold’s condition has deteriorated, and the medical team coincidentally found a stage 4 cancer that had spread to his lungs, bowels, and brain. The medical team predicted he would have 3 months to live. The medical team first disclosed this information to Kim, Arnold’s daughter. Kim begged the medical team to not tell her father as it would lead to him living in fear and she was scared this news would send his health spirally downwards further. 2 Assessment Instructions This assessment requires you to consider the case study above and discuss the situation in relation to the four ethical principles: autonomy, justice, beneficence, and non-maleficence.
