2.3 Cons Nursis Selfie
The nurse who carries out a selfie with the patient naturally violates the nursing code
of ethics, as it is clearly stated in the nursing code of ethics that the Nurse must keep
confidential everything that is known in connection with the duty entrusted to him unless
required by the authorities in accordance with applicable law. If doing selfie with the
patient as well as not maintaining the privacy of the patient. If the patient or family reports
the act of the nurse then it can be processed legally which will cause harm to the nurse.
The act of nurse who perform selfie with patient strongly shows unprofessional
deeds. Nurses are obliged to do the documentation but not by doing selfie with the
Conducting selfie with the patient is also included in clinical violation of ethics.
Clinical ethics is part of bioethics that pay more attention to ethical issues during service
delivery to clients. Examples of clinical ethics: the presence of consent or rejection, and
how one should respond to less useful (in vain) medical requests. Selfies are also included
in medical treatment that is less useful if not dilkukan for documentation. If used for
documentation also will not be disseminated in social media because it includes not
maintaining the privacy of patients. It is the duty of a health worker to maintain the
confidentiality of the patient, and if they break it they can be interpreted in violation of
their professional oath. Patients also should not be in situations where they have to
sacrifice privacy for the benefit of health workers.
In addition, the lack of trust and insecurity of the patient. Because patients want care
and attention from health workers when they seek help or others. The lack of privacy
raises stress so that the patient does not trust and feel safe. This condition can interfere
with the healing process because the patient's mental is known to affect the effectiveness
of healing.
Then the incident violates the work ethic of health personnel. In some countries,
there are civil and criminal laws governing health-care services to follow standardized
ethical codes, and the law will ensure they comply with those standards. Carrying a selfie
without a patient's permission or not giving them the therapy they want is expressed as a
very unethical act, and they may be penalized for doing this. It should be from a health
worker to be aware of this problem and train them how to overcome it so as not to happen
Selfie make someone forget the time, forgot the job so that the same nurse was not
ready to face the various state of the patient because even though the photo is only for
personal pleasure alone, still there must be little in the photo that shows the condition or
condition of the hospital. It is unethical to spread the place where it should be a sterile
place where it should not be disseminated, because the patient's condition is included in
the patient's privacy and will lead to different understandings of each viewer.
Selfish nurses means breaking the nursing rules of the hospital and violating the
patient's privacy. The rule of thumb in the principle of confidentiality is that information
about clients should be kept private. Everything contained in the client's health records
document may only be read in the context of client treatment. No one may obtain such
information unless permitted by the client with evidence of consent.

2.3 Kontra Nursis Selfie

Perawat yang melakukan selfie dengan pasien secara alami melanggar kode etik keperawatan,
seperti yang dinyatakan dengan jelas dalam kode etik keperawatan bahwa Perawat harus
merahasiakan segala hal yang diketahui sehubungan dengan tugas yang dipercayakan
kepadanya kecuali jika diwajibkan oleh Pihak berwenang sesuai dengan hukum yang berlaku.
Jika melakukan selfie dengan pasien serta tidak menjaga kerahasiaan pasien. Jika pasien atau
keluarga melaporkan tindakan perawat maka obat tersebut dapat diproses secara legal yang
akan membahayakan perawat.

Tindakan perawat yang melakukan selfie dengan pasien sangat menunjukkan perbuatan tidak
profesional. Perawat diwajibkan untuk melakukan dokumentasi tapi tidak dengan melakukan
selfie dengan pasien.

Melakukan selfie dengan pasien juga termasuk dalam pelanggaran etika secara klinis. Etika
klinis adalah bagian dari bioetika yang lebih memperhatikan masalah etika selama pemberian
layanan kepada klien. Contoh etika klinis: adanya persetujuan atau penolakan, dan bagaimana
seseorang harus menanggapi permintaan medis yang kurang berguna (sia-sia). Selfies juga
termasuk dalam perawatan medis yang kurang berguna jika tidak dilkukan untuk dokumentasi.
Jika digunakan untuk dokumentasi juga tidak akan disebarluaskan di media sosial karena
termasuk tidak menjaga privasi pasien. Adalah tugas petugas kesehatan untuk menjaga
kerahasiaan pasien, dan jika melanggarnya, mereka dapat ditafsirkan melanggar sumpah
profesional mereka. Pasien juga tidak boleh berada dalam situasi di mana mereka harus
mengorbankan privasi demi kepentingan petugas kesehatan.

Selain itu, kurangnya kepercayaan dan ketidakamanan pasien. Karena pasien menginginkan
perawatan dan perhatian dari petugas kesehatan saat mereka mencari pertolongan atau orang
lain. Kurangnya privasi menimbulkan stres sehingga pasien tidak percaya dan merasa aman.
Kondisi ini bisa mengganggu proses penyembuhan karena mental pasien diketahui
mempengaruhi keefektifan penyembuhan.

Kemudian kejadian tersebut melanggar etika kerja petugas kesehatan. Di beberapa negara, ada
hukum perdata dan pidana yang mengatur layanan kesehatan untuk mengikuti kode etik
standar, dan undang-undang tersebut memastikan mereka mematuhi standar tersebut.
Membawa selfie tanpa izin dari pasien atau tidak memberi mereka terapi yang mereka inginkan
dinyatakan sebagai tindakan yang sangat tidak etis, dan mungkin juga dihukum karena
melakukan hal ini. Seharusnya dari petugas kesehatan menyadari masalah ini dan melatih
mereka cara mengatasinya agar tidak terjadi lagi.

Selfie membuat seseorang lupa waktu, lupa pekerjaan sehingga perawat yang sama tidak siap
menghadapi berbagai keadaan pasien karena meski foto hanya untuk kesenangan pribadi saja,
tetap saja harus ada sedikit foto yang menunjukkan kondisinya. Atau kondisi rumah sakit.
Tidak etis menyebarkan tempat yang seharusnya menjadi tempat steril yang seharusnya tidak
disebarluaskan, karena kondisi pasien termasuk dalam privasi pasien dan akan menimbulkan
perbedaan pemahaman masing-masing pemirsa.

Perawat egois berarti melanggar peraturan keperawatan di rumah sakit dan melanggar privasi
pasien. Aturan praktis dalam prinsip kerahasiaan adalah informasi tentang klien harus dijaga
kerahasiaannya. Segala sesuatu yang terdapat dalam dokumen catatan kesehatan klien hanya
dapat dibaca dalam konteks perawatan klien. Tidak ada yang bisa memperoleh informasi
tersebut kecuali jika diijinkan oleh klien dengan bukti persetujuan.
