Jehovah's Witness and blood transfusion

Quaranta F., Bedogni C., Lavagna F., Clerico D., Quaranta F. C.

The authors examine the difficulty that doctor have to face to recognize behavioural rules in conformity both with ethical-deontological and juridical principles for Jehovah's witness and the refused blood transfusion. A correct interpretation of the juridical rules imposes to the doctor to respect the sick's will even when it can endanger his own life. Authors agree with deontological rules when they allow to doctor to behave according to his science and conscientiousness in the cases in which consent or dissent could not be expressed.
