I cut and paste the following question from the new feature on SDN interview feedback. It was asked at the university of Utah according to the poster. "Woman getting a Cesarian and her platelets are low. Of course, her religion calls for no infusion of blood products. She says no blood products. She passes out. She is in a bad way. Her husband says "give her blood." What do you do?" Personally I think this is a tough question, maybe because I haven't taken an ethics class. Anyway, as far as I know the courts do uphold a Jehovah Witness's decision to refuse blood infusions. If the husband was not there to voice his desire, I would not infuse blood and would do everything possible to stabalize the patient, including any other medication or procedure that would help the case. However, in this case, I think family members know and want nothing but the best for the patient and thus I would have to consider her husband's wishes. Since the wife was physically very sick,I would argue that the patient's husband might have been more competent to make a more wise decision on her behalf. How would you guys address this question?
