Abstract:   (298 Views)
Now, more than two years after the onset of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the relative remission of the inflammatory atmosphere in society, it is a good time to meticulously investigate the dimensions of COVID-19 occurring in human societies from an ethical perspective. In the early days of COVID-19, due to its unknown nature and high fear in societies, the world witnessed some immoralities in the field of health justice and the distribution of health medicines and items. After the production of the vaccine, its distribution was unfair and far from ethics and international legal charters, and most of the prescribed vaccines were used in high-income countries and the share of low-income countries was low. Moreover, the waves of the disease have caused the accumulation of a large number of patients in medical centers and the consequence of these difficult and exhausting conditions has led to many physical and mental disorders in many medical staffs, especially nurses due to their closer proximity and care of patients, influencing on their care quality and the performance of the country's health system. All these factors have led to the lack of patient-centered and empathetic care, discrimination, ignoring patients' independence as well as conflict between professional commitment and personal responsibilities, which have been the most common ethical problems in the medical staff. It is hoped to pay more attention to the Charter of Patients' Rights, which guarantees the movement of the health system within the framework of professional ethics, and to learn more from the recent crisis to identify the opportunities and threats in this direction.
