Good Afternoon. This is my first time on here. My paper is regarding this issue: A 6-year-old develops a high fever accompanied by violent vomiting and convulsions while at school. The child is rushed to a nearby hospital. The attending physician makes a diagnosis of meningitis and requests permission to initiate treatment from the parents. The child’s parents are divorced. The mother, who is not the biological parent of the child, has primary custody. She is a Christian Scientist who insists that no medical treatment be offered for religious reasons. The biological father, who resides in another state, is also contacted. He insists that treatment be given and seeks independent consultation from another physician. It needs to be in a formal, written paper of 800-1200 words, and needs to answer the following questions: 1) What is the ethical dilemma here? 2) Describe the decision-making model you selected from your readings. 3) How would you resolve this dilemma using the model? 4) Include, at the end of your paper, a 200 word dialog in which you explain your decision to the family. (Remember to use language that the family would understand). My Book is Ethical Dimensions in the Health Professions, 5 th edition by Ruth Purtilo and Regina Doherty. We were using Uustal’s 9 step decision making guide Ethical Decision Making It is helpful to use a decision-making model for ethical dilemmas in order to guide one’s decision making from an objective, cognitive perspective, rather than a purely affective or emotional perspective. Uustal (1993) proposed the following steps to guide one’s ethical decision making. Uustal’s model not only follows the nursing process, but also includes values clarification when applying an ethical decision-making model. My paper is due June 5, 2016 @ midnight. Please let me know if you’d be able to do it, and the cost. Sorry for the late notice. I will in the future, give ample notice…

We need a minimum of 3 references must be used, APA format must be used.

Thank you in advance!
