Peer Post:
Beginning in 2013 the media began to release articles regarding the actions that were occurring at Guantanamo Bay (Patton et al., 2019). At Guantanamo bay prisoners were tortured through the hands of healthcare workers such as nurses and physicians (Crosby & Benavidez, 2018). According to Patton et al. (2019), one of the nurses working there was made to give tube feedings as a way to force the prisoners to eat, because the prisoners were attempting a hunger strike to protest their detainment. This nurse refused to give the feedings as he felt it was not ethical and went against his duty to care for his patients and their rights. He was removed from his position at Guantanamo Bay and almost released from duty because of his refusal (Patton et al., 2019).

A news organization wrote the original media release about the nurse, which then spread to larger news sources writing about the detainment center and the actions that were taking place (Patton et al., 2019). The ANA got involved in supporting the nurse’s case saying that he was following “the ANA Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements” (Patton et al., 2019) and that the code requires that nurses care for the rights every human.

As a result of the media’s attention on this case, the nurse was not removed from duty and there was a result of a policy change for the treatment of prisoners that are participating in hunger strikes (Patton et al., 2019). Many other healthcare associations have also issued statements agreeing that it is against our duty as healthcare providers to torture anybody (Crosby & Benavidez, 2018). However, I would not call this case a complete success as Guantanamo Bay still is open as President Trump issued an order in 2018 that allows the prison to remain open (Yachot, 2018).
