The combination of these two theories is implied here by the suggestion that intuitive and cognitive approaches will ultimately lead to the most optimal decision in the situation described; we often use our intuition and experience to judge on the actions and take decisions, this is why our cognition, and especially in nursing practice, will always work together with intuitive ideas.
I stage. Identification of potential choices of action. First of all, the amount of information John has at his disposal does allow him to make reasonable steps in the attempt to protect young mother on the legal basis. The young lady has full right to sue the 21-year-old father of her child for physical abuse; moreover, the event took place in public with lots of witnesses. The teenage mom states that her mate takes drugs on the daily basis. In relation to John the moral and mental stress has caused him chest pain, and taking into account he has already had serious problems with his cardio health, the whole situation won't work for his benefit. From the ethical and nursing viewpoint, he may leave the idea of interrupting with the case, which will save his health in normal state and won't let him suffer physically either of heart problems, or from the threats of the young boy, who is unpredictable in his actions. On the other hand, his inactivity makes the life of teenage mother and her child indefinite and puts it under threat. Thus, there are the two principal outcomes and choices, which both have their advantages and disadvantages. Both decisions include physical and ethical issues.
II. Assign values to possible judges/ outcomes. Both outcomes have their values. The value of John staying indifferent towards the course the events take is in his care for his health. This value is important from the nursing viewpoint, but from the ethical and human viewpoint it is not perfect. Ethics (and intuition is also involved here) suggests, that the teenage mother needs assistance, moral, physical and legal. Her parents are able to provide her and her child with everything necessary and let her finish her higher education; but the threat on the side of the young father should be eliminated. The value of John taking care of the situation is in saving the life of the young girl, trying to explain to her the values of her coming back to parents and continuing education. It also involves the threat for John's health, but this threat can be lessened through John involving legal assistance (police) into the resolution of the issue. It is clearly seen, that the case cannot be solved without police interruption, but as the teenage Mom refused to press charges, the whole case becomes even more complicated. Thus, the value of the second outcome when John will have to rule the whole situation and take the decisions as for what legal assistance should be addressed in the case possesses more values from the nursing and ethical viewpoints in relation to the teenage Mom, though less ethical and nursi
