After thoroughly going through each lens, one was able to make decisions based on virtues, values, and morals.
As Quality Control manager for the company a problem one dealt with was when products came back from the lab contaminated. The company had to decide whether or not to warn consumers and what information to provide them about the contaminant. The stakeholders are described as: those directly involved in the situation, those who carry out the decision, those directly affected by the solution, and/or those whose direct interest are to be protected. Being the person who makes decisions, one decided the company should disseminate the information on increased risk, allowing the consumers to make his or her choice on whether or not to continue or discontinue using the product. One felt this was the best decision because as a company we acknowledge that we made a commitment to protect customers and provide them with accurate information on the products. G-BioSport knows that giving out this information will not affect the majority of consumers, but we believe the need to be sensitive to those who will be affected. This decision will allow us to make sure we are protecting customers and not risking their health, and also reassuring that we are following laws and regulations as a company.

The first case dealt with a conflict of core ethics in how to care properly for a teenage pregnant female whose parents desire to limit medical interventions for a prolonged labor. The young patient is a teenager whose labor is progressing slowly and her parents have stated they want no assistance done for her. This situation places both mom and unborn child at an increased risk for injury and possibly death.
