    If you think you have seen something that worries you or that you think needs escalating talk privately to your supervisor in the first instance. They might be able to help you understand what happened or report the incident if needs be.

    When thinking about whether a situation presents an ethical dilemma consider:
    - the patient's autonomy- is it being respected/is someone acting in their best interests if they are not able to consent or understand the situation
    -Beneficence, do the benefits outweigh any negative consequences?
    -Non-Maleficence, is there any harm being done?
    -Justice, is the process fair and equal?

    In regards to a scenario which you did not expect - for example, doctor did not ask patient consent?

    Funnily the thing that came up was one of consent, though to be clear no doctor did anything without consent.
