ethics & legal issues

posted by .

A female patient is scheduled for lumbar spine series. The radiographer is asked to go to another room for some
accident victims. She tells you everything is ready to go. You go ahead and perform the x-rays. It is revealed that the woman is pregant and in the first trimester. Obviously an injustice has been done and may result in a lawsuit.
Was the injustice done active or passive? Is there a moral difference? What can be learned from this sceanario?
