Ethical Scenario 2
You are a student nurse on the elderly care ward, and one of your long-term patients (Mr Thomas) is due to be discharged later today. Mr Thomas is very appreciative for the care you have provided him over the last one month, and as a token of his appreciation, he has given you an envelope with £500.
Explain your actions in this scenario? How would your actions differ if Mr Thomas advised you that he also gave each of the other doctors and nursing staff on the ward £500?
