Ethical Dilemma by Mind Map: Ethical Dilemma

1. Dilemma

1.1. Bonita is a 55-year-old Spanish-speaking woman who just underwent post-rotator cuff repair. Her Occupational Therapist, Jessica, recommended that she goes under passive range of motion (PROM). Jessica shows her how to also use an alternative treatment with the use of shoulder pulleys. She lets Bonita know the risks of doing PROM after her procedure and that the preferred intervention would be passive manipulation. Jessica wants to change the original intervention and Bonita informs Jessica she is seeing a curandero. Jessica is worried that this will affect Bonita’s treatment but doesn’t know how to tell her.
