Andrew was 17 years old when he presented to the Emergency Department of a public hospital with a fever, productive cough, and shortness of breath. The triage nurse, Bill, assessed Andrew on arrival and assumed that he most likely had bronchitis; Bill had seen an increase in patients presenting with bronchitis that week, some of whom went to the same school as Andrew. Bill asked Andrew to take a seat in the waiting room while staff attended to patients whose conditions were deemed more urgent. Andrew was left waiting for 6 hours until he eventually collapsed. Further investigations were then conducted by the Emergency Registrar which indicated a high probability that Andrew had pulmonary tuberculosis, most likely contracted on a recent trip overseas. He was transferred to an isolation room in the high dependency unit and his family were notified. Andrew’s condition worsened and his parents were informed that he was most unlikely to survive. They wanted to take him home so that, in keeping with cultural traditions, he could die in the family home. The hospital refused to discharge Andrew; public health regulations governing mycobacterium tuberculosis required the hospital to confine patients with this condition in isolation. Andrew’s parents suspected that the hospital was really trying to ‘cover up’ the errors made in the Emergency Department. Andrew died a week later. His family commenced legal proceedings against the hospital. 1. Identify the ethical issues raised by the events described in your above case study 2.
