Norman, K. (2016). Live and let die: The consequences of Oklahoma’s nondiscrimination in treatment act. Oklahoma Law Review 68(3). Retrieved from

Glenn Ross, a 55-year-old man living in Oklahoma, was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer. His prognosis was poor; he was given about six months to live. He underwent several series of chemotherapy treatments, but they were of no benefit. He continued to lose weight, suffered from nausea, and became weaker. After three months of chemotherapy treatments, he stated that he wanted no further treatment. He became bedridden and was admitted into a nursing home for terminal care. Glenn’s son, who lived in another state, arrived at the nursing home and demanded that his father’s physician be called immediately. The son wanted his father to be hospitalized and placed on chemotherapy immediately. When the physician explained that there was little hope for the father’s recovery, the son threatened to sue the physician for withdrawal of care.

   As the manager of Glenn’s palliative care facility, you are responsible for helping Glenn’s physician navigate the appropriate legal and ethical course of action. Answer the following questions in your discussion post:
       Identify the ethical issues in the scenario described.
       Does the son have a legitimate reason to sue the physician? Why or why not? Support your opinion with research and cite relevant laws and regulations that support or discredit his statement.
       What are the possible solutions to this scenario? Describe the outcomes that would provide a win-win situation.

Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with citations and references in APA format.
