As a culturally and religiously sensitive nurse, how might you explain to this mother why her daughter needs blood?
Being a nurse who is religiously and culturally sensitive, I would
advise the mother to highly consider the well- being of her daughter
understanding that the blood transfusion is being conducted to save the
child’s life. Even if the mother is religiously sensitive and her
beliefs are against my convictions, I would offer her a chance to
explain the reason she feels that blood transfusion goes against her
religious beliefs so that we can arrive at a suitable agreement. The
fact that the child has lost a lot of blood from the accident is the
main cause of blood transfusion. The procedure would help in replacing

What are the ethical issues raised by the mother refusing blood products for her daughter?
The ethical issues revolving around the mother’s refusal for her
daughter to go through blood transfusion are based on the faith of
Jehovah Witness followers. This group believes it is against the Bible
to directly consume or receive blood-related products referring to the
phrase in the book of Genesis and Leviticus which suggests that people
should not consume the blood contained in a living creature. Their

If the mother continued to refuse to allow her daughter to receive blood products, as a provider, what would you do?
The laws governing the interpretation of culture and religion in the
nursing sector allow adults to make decisions concerning their health.
However, parents are not fully allowed to make critical decisions for
their children in case they go contrary to the beliefs and practices of
nurses and doctors. In the event when the mother continues to refuse
this procedure to be carried out, I would continue with it because the
child’s health is solely the responsibility of a nurse. Blood
transfusion is an important procedure hence it would be my mandate to
saving the child’s life.
