Please see attached pdf with complete instructions and Case Study.

Instructions

For this assessment you will apply some concepts we have learned in the course, particularly those relating to the

basic principles of health care ethics, professional codes of ethics, and values of health care institutions.

Write a paper that answers the following questions as it relates to the Tonya Archer Case Study:

What are the most relevant end-of-life issues in health care ethics as they relate to this case?

What should the hospital do? Should doctors simply keep Tonya on life support, as the parents want? Or,

since all medical evidence indicates that Tonya’s brain damage is permanent, should life support be removed?

Support your answer with the following considerations in mind:

Explain which principles of health care ethics and which moral theory are the best philosophical foundations

for your view.

Is your view supported by your professional code of ethics? If so, explain how. If not, explain what your code

gets wrong about a case like this.

Is your view consistent with the mission statement and values of the hospital you identified in your

independent research you conducted to prepare to complete this assessment?

Would an accrediting body, like the Joint Commission, support your choice? Why or why not?
