Here we can clearly see how Fadiman wants to show how people should treat others from a different religion. She says that she needs to “more like a Hmong” to understand their culture, religion and traditions. Doing so will help her understand why it is that they do what they do and why they have little trust on American doctors and medicine. If the doctors at the Merced hospital had tried to put themselves in Lia’s parent’s shoes to try and understand their culture they would of been able to come up with solutions that would of helped Lia more in the long run. Simply ignoring the fact that they are dealing with a completely different and trying to do what they can under the circumstances they should of been able to work with the parents.
Then the outcome came to the patients’ family who were open to the idea of continuing their sons’ legacy. Also, the physician suggested to the parents that another way of giving new life was through organ denotation instead of harvesting the sperm. The girlfriend and the parents came to the final decision of denoting the patients’ organ and they were transplanted into four people. This was an example of an ethical dilemma that occurred within the health care facility. Five guidelines are
The mere fact that her parents, who are also child psychologists, would use Amy’s childhood as a template for a book and to project their expectations of her through the book. This is shown by Amy’s commentary “My parents have always worried that I’d take Amy too personally – they always tell me not to read too much into her. And yet I can’t fail to notice that whenever I screw something up, Amy does it right: When I finally quit violin at age twelve, Amy was revealed as a prodigy in the next book. (‘Sheesh, violin can be hard work, but hard work is the only way to get better!’) When I blew off the junior tennis championship at age sixteen to do a beach weekend with friends, Amy recommitted to the game. (‘Sheesh, I know it’s fun to spend time with friends, but I’d be letting myself and everyone else down if I didn’t show up for the tournament.’) This used to drive me mad, but after I went off to Harvard (and Amy correctly chose my parents’ alma mater), I decided it was all too ridiculous to think about.
The novel is divided into five chapters, each one has its own story and narrative. The first one is titled “No Name Women”. This chapter of the novel discusses the story of the forgotten aunt, the one that shall not be named .Kingston’s mother tells her this story in order to warn her about the consequences of doing something that might bring shame to herself and her family. The aunt was a married woman whose husband has left long time ago and left her behind. One day the aunt discovers that she is pregnant and that she is carrying an illegitimate child.
As I continue reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks it makes me question why some of the people treated her the way they did. Like how Doctor Gey would only care about taking Henrietta’s cancerous cells for research rather than help her. It also has me wondering about what is going to happen in the remaining chapters and how everything will end up with Henrietta’s family. I think if Rebecca Skloot wrote another book similar to this I would read it because of how interested I am in this one. As for recommending this book, yes I would.
The article by Diana Palmer and Howard Bauchner discusses and compares the opinions and concerns that both parents and pediatricians have about antibiotics. The argument made was that parents are sometimes not knowledgeable about antibiotics and pressure pediatricians to unnecessarily prescribe antibiotics. However, Palmer and Bauchner believe that by educating the parents through proper communication between pediatrician and patient the proper prescription of antibiotics will increase. The assertion is backed by research done in Massachusetts, where a four hundred patient survey was concluded from both private practices and a public healthcare center and a survey answered by sixty-one pediatrics. The research discovered that parents do have
Government Site for Medicare (2010), “In 1981, Medicaid patients had more flexibility and choice to select their own health care providers” (p. 1). This was helpful so people could pick providers that they wanted and not forced to have providers they did not find useful. Growing up, I used Medicaid and I remember my mother not liking the pediatrician my siblings and I had. She wanted the provider that helped her deliver all her children and it was not a problem to go back. I find that very useful for people that do not know the dominate language to be able pick providers that are able to speak their language.
One negative for sure could be that you may never know your actual cultures ways and values for sure if your adopted parents are not willing to practice or even talk about where you may of came from, but in that situation it could also make the adoption a little easier on the child and also the parents who adopt the child because it could make the process go a little smoother and have the child get to know their new family more and their way of doing things. In
As a parent of an 11 year-old daughter, you would research a lot to be sure if there is any side effect or problem with the Gardasil vaccination. Parents are responsible for their children and must be wary not to blindly follow their doctor 's recommended vaccine schedule. They cannot rely or expect their doctor to know everything. They should do their own research and ask plenty of questions about devastating effects. Although I believe vaccines are central and essential components of public health, there are two kinds of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines.
When her mother was giving birth to the baby, he was born dead, she then needed to do a hysterectomy, she could not have more babies. Chanhassen then wanted to travel to find herself. When Sal 's mother got to Idaho, she died in the tragic bus accident, Sal started to blame herself "I didn 't want to blame her. She was my mother, and she was part of me." (Creech, page 109) .
