Please read case #1 "80 -Year Old Woman Whose Son Dies from a Heart Attack" in chapter 12 on page 243 of the textbook. Please write a few paragraphs to answer the questions posed by this case. Case 1 80-Year-Old Woman Whose Son Dies from a Heart Attack Jesusita, 80 years old and with a bad heart, is living in a convalescent hospital where she is visited regularly by her 50-year-old son, along with other members of the family. Her son dies suddenly one night of a heart attack. The remaining members of the family feel that she shouldn’t be told of this because of her own weak heart, and in collusion with the hospital staff, no one tells her. After a week, Jesusita asks why her son hasn’t visited her, and the family tells her he is on a business trip, hoping she will forget about him. But the next week she asks where he is and when he will return. She also wants to know why he hasn’t called her or written a letter or postcard from where he is. The family tells her he is very busy but should be back soon. Another week passes, and Jesusita becomes very restless and upset about her son not visiting her; she becomes harder and harder to care for, and she cries a lot. The staff and family gather to discuss what to do about the situation. They wonder whether they should tell her the truth now or think up some more excuses. Did they do the right thing in the beginning by lying to Jesusita? If she were your mother or grandmother, and your brother or uncle had died, what do you think she should be told? Why or why not? If you had done what they did or if you were staff dealing with this situation, what would you advise? Do you feel she should be told the truth now? If so, how would you do the telling? If not, how would you suggest this situation be handled? Do you think it would have been better to tell her the truth in the beginning? Why or why not? Do you think not telling her in the beginning has made the situation better or worse? Why or why not? If so, in what ways?
