based on what I heard from my classmates, I would go people caring more about doing the right thing because I feel like if you pick doing things right something always happens and they don't always come out good. always do the right thing to get results. it saves you a lot of trouble and time to do the right thing.
I really enjoyed how one of our English classmates explained the journal entry, she gave the example of “two girls been selected, but she went with the one who had the most votes” she dis the right thing. I do agree with her bacause not just doing the right thing, but fairness was also described by our classmate. In the other hand, Diana presented “If you cannot commit to do things right then you are not doing the right thing” I also liked this quote by the second presenter because it is a strong quote, so she made me think that if I don’t commit to do things right then I will not just be wasting my time; therefore, doing things right the first time can save us so much troble and time.
Should people care about doing the right thing, or doing things right?
I am going to go with a little bit of both, there is always some wrong to someone’s right. It is impossible to be able do anything correct. Morals and eithics are ever so important, it is how people will do things to get to a final product that is the evaluation or process of doing anything.
There is a little lie, smeging of dishonesties in doing something for someone or self.
I am not going to sit here and say that one needs to do whatever it takes, but a risk assessment and damage control needs to be in place. Choosing certain battles versus careless heart breaking and drama needs to be in play.
Here is my theory of the matter, there are white lies and misconceptions of language that at times needs to be said or done in order for the final outcome to happen. Life is filled with mis conceptions and dishonesties that already make life difficult; being cautious of possible damage is risk one must take.
I am not saying go out and be a con-artist but take small careful risk in order to make the right situation go your way.
I enjoyed the verbal journal the two young ladies gave this week and appreciate their bravery and doing the right thing.
Depending on the situation I am in, it's unsure what I would pick but doing things right can give consequences. Of course, doing the right thing is always the best option; saving you time and giving you peace. We take that risk when you're indecisive. Like the example Diana gave in English class, when she had to do the right thing by telling the truth when her coworker mistakenly gave the wrong dosage to a patient. Yes, doing things right might be fast and easy but doing right will result to nothing. Once you do the right thing, you could worry about doing things right.
During the journal presentations on Tuesday, Diana gave a good example of a nurse doing Things right and how it is better. She gave an example of a nurse that didn’t do the right thing and almost ended a patients life. The nurse didn’t double check with another nurse on checking the insulin dosage. Thankfully the patient was okay. I agree with what Diana said. By doing things right, there are less chances of mistakes and trouble won’t arise later. It would save a lot of time. Not only that but it is morally right and makes you human.
I have never questioned myself, on wether Ido things right or the right way, never even thought of the difference. After hearing my classmates explain their thoughts on it, it made sense to me. I would not risk some one's life like the example that was shared by Diana, but I wouldn't commit to something I dont think I'm able to handle, especially if someone's life is at risk. Just like a presenter mentioned doing what u agreed to to ur best, one thing I might do right but not the right way, is homework, when I leave it for the last min. I do the right thing, but maybe no to the best.
My personal feeling is that a person should care more for doing the right thing. It shows that your very moral person and that you weigh the outcomes of decisions you make, but dong things right can be equally as important. Like my classmates examples especially Diana's involving a persons well being. I always try to do the right thing and also try to do things right. Sometimes you cant and other times its possible. I do the right thing by doing my classwork but then don't do things right about it because I rushed to complete it. In my mind though doing the right thing is better because I feel it defines you more.
Should people care more about doing the right thing, or doing things right?
In my opinion, I believe doing the right thing is equally important as doing things right. Most of the time we are expected to do things right either way, leading to do the right thing.
As our classmate Diana said in her presentation regarding the need to have a second nurse double check the insulin draw that needs to be administered to the patient. In this case, the nurse that didn't have a second nurse check her work, is at fault for whatever happens to this patient. Had she had the double check and done things right, this could have been prevented or better yet, wouldn't have occurred.
As for the nurse that refused to say she did check insulin draw because she did not, was doing the right thing. She would have lied and then gotten herself in trouble for trying to cover and the for accepting a liability she was not indeed part of.
