You overhear a fellow student say to another colleague, “I
just pretended to treat her. She was sleeping and will never know the
difference. It’s such a drag to treat someone who is so out of it.” This
student has cheated a patient out of her treatment. Is this different from
cheating on a classroom test? Is so, why is it? If you observed a classmate
cheating, should your response to it be different than if you learned that a
patient was not treated? In each case, what should you do?
