The following scenarios are presented as though seen through my mother’s eyes. She lived in two different nursing homes over a four-year period. The first purpose of these scenarios is to share experiences with which I had to work for the benefit and protection of my mother. The second purpose is to offer options, other than suing, to resolve anger and pain that others cause you through careless and thoughtless words and deeds. The third purpose is to let you know, that these are RNs, LVNs, and aides in nursing homes who care greatly about their residents. The fourth purpose is to stimulate your thinking about optional plans with which you can live out your life, other than in a nursing home. This is as important as spiritual, pre-need, and financial planning. Finally, the last purpose is to suggest that no one person can meet all the physical, psychological, social, leisure, and requirements for another human being.
You do not wave or give a verbal greeting. You are afraid I will ask you to help me. You offer me no acknowledgment. not No harm done? 2.

David, a young scientist investigating what happens to the brain during the process of learning, suddenly finds himself the subject of a bizarre experiment. On the way home from the lab one night he spies Tony, a fitness instructor from his gym, on the same platform waiting for the tube. David's had an obsession with Tony for weeks, but Tony's barely noticed him at all. Until now. When David imagines the man naked, an extraordinary thing happens: Tony strips there and then on the platform and offers himself in front of all onlookers. Horrified, David flees. But back at his flat, Tony reappears, as if by magic. And disappears, when David wishes him away. And reappears when he calls him back. David can conjure up anyone, from any time, and he does: Billie Holliday, Johnny Weismuller, Daffy Duck, Picasso, Sophia Loren, even his younger self. Mad with lust and losing all scientific objectivity, he runs the gamut of his fantasies until, sated and morally bankrupt, he's forced to confront himself. It is not a pretty sight.

This work is aimed at those caught somewhere in the middle between those for whom only heterosexual and monogamous marriage, or "anything goes," are paradigms of suitable behaviour and intimate relationships. Ethicist and Christian Marie Fortune explores what it means to be in an intimate relationship today, surrounded as we are by domestic violence and continued silencing of women's voices.
There are people who have said " no , thank you ” to a sexual overture only to be stalked and harassed . Although the principle of doing least harm sounds ...

When does the exercise of an interest constitute a human right? The contributors to Menuge’s edited collection offer a range of secular and religious responses to this fundamental question of the legitimacy of human rights claims. The first section evaluates the plausibility of natural and transcendent foundations for human rights. A further section explores the nature of religious freedom and the vexed question of its proper limits as it arises in the US, European, and global contexts. The final section explores the pragmatic justification of human rights: how do we motivate the recognition and enforcement of human rights in the real world? This topical book should be of interest to a range of academics from disciplines spanning law, philosophy, religion and politics.

This text integrates law and ethics in nursing. Ideal ethical behaviour is described for specific nursing values, as well as the minimum legal behaviour that should result, and the reality if it differs. The author discusses separate nursing behaviour in relationships with patients and non-patients. The text's emphasis on legal principles allows for quick and easy understanding, thus avoiding the need for nurses to get bogged down in the fine details of the law.
The self - interest nurses have in doing no harm is the same interest they have in
doing good ( beneficence ) ; they feel good , are seen as good , and adhere to
professional values . Not harming enhances the individual's self - esteem as a ...

A collection of fifteen stories, Jean McGarry's No Harm Done, depicts family life at its worst, best, and funniest, as if the author had conjoined the lunacy of Cold Comfort Farm with the bitter grievances of Dubliners. As the author writes in "Strong Boy," this might be "...because every family, rich or poor, is roughage." The characters, gallant, goofy, gifted, and grim, include sickly mothers of a dozen children, boozy fathers with a gift of the gab, kids aspiring to be nuns and priests, or just to get out of town with a whole skin. A section is devoted to one marriage made in heaven: a Jewish psychoanalyst devoted to his ex-nun wife. Another set of stories reworks familiar fairy tales, setting them in the wild present. No Harm Done (whose title is Irish code for wishful thinking) concludes with a truce to the war between the sexes, and indeed a 'solution' to the tragicomedy that is marriage and family.
