Need help with my Nursing question – I’m studying for my class.

Please select one of the movies to watch. Provide a summary of the movie and the ethics involved. Were ethics violated? Did they have any IRB (Institutional Review Boards) approval for the experiments they conducted? Were the participants injured in this study if so what were the injuries. If children were involved were the parents informed.These movies may be on Netflix, You Tube, HBO, or for a small fee on Google play
