You Decide Memorandum


To: All patients
From: Dr. George Aldeguer
Date: 05-16-13

Dear patients and family,
The decisions are hard and very ethical to us. Jerry a father of three children is really worried because they can lose their dad to a poor decision he made long time age with steroids. Jerry is 55 years old with a heart issue with no other medical concerns. Lisa is a twelve year old girl with sever health issues. This concerns us with the viral infections she has like lupus and pneumonia. Ozzy a 38 year old male that is homeless and having a bad drug problem can have a very bad heart and won’t live for a month. Dr. Doe 35 year old male which is Lisa’s dad has donated two million to the hospital to help find her a heart to help her survive another couple of years.
1. Let’s start with Jerry he is 55 years old with no medical history and is very good to get the ...view middle of the document...

Lisa can have a good life with problems to come in her later years. If we give her a transplant she can help family out with what she can and make the family happy just to be with her. Her father will donate two million to the hospital to help her get her heart in time but will this be ethical to do so. Using the J Mill and J Bentham theory it shows it isn’t a good option for us. It is easy to collect

money from her father and depend on their contributions to the hospital but it isn’t what we are seeing, what and who can benefit the transplant in longer years of life.
3. Ozzy a homeless man with a bad drug addiction to crack cocaine. He has a heart problem from overdosing to crack cocaine that could not live long enough he is using again. He has a month to live with his heart issue. If we use J Mill and J Bentham theory on this he would not be an ideal candidate. He will be very selfish and start the addiction again and the heart will be useless. He does not benefit from this at all and will be passed on from this procedure.
I will conclude this theory with one thing in mind its using the ethical theory by John Mill and Jeremy Bentham. When solving dilemmas like this and seeing who the best fit for the heart is, it would be Jerry. He is old at 55 years old but has three kids and a wife with no job. He benefits this because of the health he has and that he will live longer and help his kids achieve their goals in life. He is almost retire able and can help around the house. After the 5 years of retirement his kids should be able to graduate and take care of him. He can continue his job and keep the money stable for his family to live. S using the theory it shows that this would be the best bet for the situation we have. The other two don’t have very promising living abilities and won’t benefit from the heart at all. Lisa’s father did donate money and is a doctor himself but he should know that there will come a time where she turns twenty and can live any longer. That’s why I chose Jerry as the ideal candidate for his health is good and no other problems to come in the future.
