Legal and Ethical Case Study

Read the following case study scenario:


You are a Case Manager RN working in the Organ Transplantation department of a large university hospital in a metropolitan area. The job of the Case Manager RN is to manage the care of patients who are awaiting transplant. After transplantation, the Case Manager RN then assumes the role of assisting the patient in maintaining optimal health to ensure long term success and health with the newly transplanted organ. During both the pre-and post-transplant time the Case Manager RN will be assisting the patient in setting up appointments, managing medications, monitoring laboratory values, and often a variety of other duties will arise as well. The Case Manager RN is an integral part of the transplant team and has a vital role to ensure success.

The patient’s family has indicated they would like him to have a kidney transplant and they are willing to assist patient with managing his care after the transplantation. However, the patient has indicated he is “not sure” he wants a transplant and thinks it might be a “waste of a kidney” to use on him, because he “has no money” and “isn’t sure” he will be able to control his diabetes and follow postop instructions. As the RN, it is your job to assess this situation and give a recommendation to the nephrologist and the transplant surgeon since you are an expert in Case Management, and it will be your responsibility to assist this patient post-transplant in maintaining optimal health.
