In rare cases, if the fire truck water runs out there is always a fire hydrant nearby to provide more water. The fire hydrant can also be a way to supply water to people in the community. What is Public health one may ask? Public health is preventing diseases, protecting and promoting the health of families, communities and population.
To become an orthopedic surgeon, the physician must now overcome the next obstacle along the path….residency and specialization. For a physician to specialize in general surgery alone, he must complete five to six years of residency. Residency is where the physician is training in a specified area of medicine and making the important decisions regarding patient care. In residency, doctors work many hours and are on call most of the time.
Even though the amount of injuries sustained by firefighters annually have dropped by 46% from 1981 to 2013, there are still over 65,000 firefighters injured or killed due to work related incidences. The leading types of injuries are strains or sprains, followed by thermal burns, then cuts or lacerations. Additionally, 58% of job related deaths are caused by overexertion, stress, and medical issues and another 14% died due to asphyxiation and smoke inhalation (NFPA, 2015). Although only 14% of people die from smoke inhalation, there are many other nonfatal diseases that are caused by the amount of toxic gases firefighters are exposed to on the job. One of the most common of these diseases is lung disease.
Since I was a young parent I worked in Buffalo until the late ninety’s, and moved to Sacramento CA and for twenty years leaving my daughter by her choice, and I took her young two year old son. I learned what humility was. My first job was working in a nursing home I received my nursing certificate, working with mental and physical patients, I learned a lot of empathy. Working with Transitional Living Community Support, taught me about mental health, and homeless, and how people suffer everyday with this disease, and how being homeless is not always by choice. While, working at TLCS I worked with CARE Connection, a program to recruit homeless hoboes and, homeless from the railroads and from under the byways and bridges.
Pretty much like a regular job, you work five days a week and get two days off unless you're a troublemaker then you might have to work some of those days. Being in the Army Reserve you report one weekend out of the month, which can be liberating because you get to go away and play. Being a member of the Army reserve means you still have to stay up to date with new information or equipment upgrades as the times change. So it can cut into birthday parties, weddings, because those frequently fall on weekends. Your unit provides you with a training calendar with eight months to a year out.
Attended Magnet Champion Meeting that was lead by Helene on September 23.rd Learned about accomplishments for each unit. For example, one unit had no falls for 30 days and another had no hospital acquired central line bloodstream infection (CLABSI). Helene provided the committee an update on Magnet Re-designation process. Challenges to Re-designation were discussed: new EMR taking the time of energy of staff, difficult increasing awareness of staff about re-designation, new generation “just doing their time.” Suggestions to increase awareness included spending a few minutes in daily huddles to give Magnet updates, providing tips on screensavers, having a bulletin board with updates each month, look at Magnet as “celebrating nursing.”
Children from the poorest 20% of households are nearly twice as likely to die before their fifth birthday as children in the richest 20%. Maternal mortality is a key indicator of health inequity. Maternal mortality is a health indicator that shows the wide gaps between rich and poor, both between and within countries. Developing countries account for 99% of annual maternal deaths in the world. Women in Afghanistan have a lifetime risk of maternal death of 1 in 11, while a woman in Ireland has a risk of 1 in 17 800.
Tubman spent 48 years taking care of injured slaves, she helped more than 288 people but, less than 400. There was less risks involved because there was no war or slavery. She enjoyed helping people who can't care from themselves. Harriet took time out of her day for 4 years for “taking care of poor people in her home.” However, “Harriet often only had six to eight people in her care.”
To cite an instance, Brown University wrote, “because of illness and death workers became exceedingly scarce so even peasants felt the effects of the new rise in wages”(“social”). The population decline affected the economy in many ways. Though there were many negative consequences, there were also some positives, such as higher wages. Additionally, an excerpt from 'The Black Death’ reads “The Black Death did more than kill large numbers of people. It also altered many social customs disrupted trade, and made most people fearful of contact with strangers”(Bender 65).
smokers see a physician on an annual basis, and most do so more than once. Glynn and Manley projected that if only half of U.S. physicians delivered even a brief “quitting” message to their patients who smoked and were successful with only 1 in 10, this would yield 1.75 million new ex-smokers every year—more than double the national annual quit rate. Using conservative estimates, over 5 million U.S. smokers could be reached through hospital-based programs each year. In all medical settings, given physicians’ very limited time for preventive interventions, non-physician health care providers (e.g., nurses, physician assistants, respiratory therapists) play a critical role as change agents. Similarly this “quitting” message can be translated worldwide by all physicians, nurses, physicians assistants, respiratory therapists and dentist we would yield millions of ex-smokers

The average stay of a patient in long-term care is 35 days, so there is a constant flow of new cases (SLPs in Long-Term Care). That is what has drawn me to nursing homes, the variety of disorders and patients. In a nursing home a Speech-Language Pathologist won’t always have to work alone. While seeing a patient, a Speech-Language Pathologist might work along side an Occupational Therapist or a Physical Therapist (SLPs in Long-Term Care). In Long-Term Care there are two different types of Medicare programs a Speech-Pathologist will have to work with (SLPs in Long-Term Care).
Today the life expectancy for someone with cystic fibrosis is their 40’s. Which is a massive improvement considering 50 years ago, people with this only survived through elementary school. Although many people who suffer with this disease are now able to live out their dreams, have careers, and families, there is still no
