Ethical Dilemma

I came across an issue today. I inherited a patient with a Dx of MDD with psychotic Fx. Upon speaking to her it was very clear she was malingering to get disability. This became more clear with chart review. She was not on an antipsychotic. My attending agreed with me that she is malingering but states because she already carries this diagnosis but is not on an antipsychotic and I should start 2.5mg Abilify otherwise the previous notes could cause potential trouble. I disagree as I do not... Ethical Dilemma

CONCLUSION: In left and right stroke rehabilitants with equally mild neglect, those with left stroke had higher stroke severity, cognitive and total disability and dependence level. Neglect severity correlated with right or left stroke severity and functional ability, moderate to severe neglect correlated significantly more with functioning. Neglect severity was independently associated with functional outcome in right stroke. PMID: 32488286 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Zablotsky B, Alford JM Abstract Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and learning disabilities are the most commonly diagnosed neurodevelopmental disorders in children and often coexist (1,2). Previous research has suggested that the prevalence of these conditions may differ by race and Hispanic origin (3,4). Using timely, nationally representative data, this report examines the reported prevalence of ADHD and learning disabilities by race and ethnicity and select demographic characteristics that are associated with the diagnosis of these conditions (1).
