Mr Smiths case in an ethical legal and moral perspective

From this paper, it is clear that the mental health act allows that the service provider can make decisions on behalf of the patient provided that it is proven that the patient is mentally incapable to make choices. For this reason, a discussion between the involved parties resulted to an agreed decision.
To conclude the task, it is clear that there are situations where the legal and ethical guidelines interact to help an individual to make a decision. At the same point, there are similarly clear variances between law and ethics that results to dilemmas. The practitioner, therefore, needs to be aware of the resemblances and the variances and in what way they affect the decisions made. It is necessary to remember the theories and moral principles that guide the moral obligations to be taken. Law is a key consideration when effecting any decision and must be considered in all ways. Law is different from the moral principles because it is enforceable in a law court while moral decisions are not backed by any enforcement authority (Benbassat&amp.Baumal, 2012).
It is also necessary to set up methods that guide the decision-making process to hasten the process and save time which is key when it comes to saving a life. Having mentioned all the above, I believe that if all health practitioners have diverse information concerning the different case they are faced with in their daily practice as a dilemma, they will be in a better position to deliver quality services to the patients at any time.
