Although “some people think that euthanasia shouldn’t be allowed…because it could be abused and used as a cover for murder” (BBC- ethics-euthanasia: Ethics…, 2014), the Hippocratic Oath obliges the doctors to preserve life and uphold specific standards. According to the article written by Gorman, the constant demand for euthanasia by many patients, states in America, such as California, Oregon, and a few other states, have proposed bills and passed laws that allows doctors to assist in euthanizing and be protected from any lawsuits that declares the action to be a misuse of authority and privileges. It has also been debated over that it is not giving the patient the right to die but instead allowing the third party the right to kill. In a biblical perspective, some may also consider it as unethical and sinful because “all life is sacred and it should be kept at all cost” (Argument for euthanasia, 2013). Therefore, many disapprove since it goes against the religious belief of a natural death.
Josie’s Story highlighted the importance of altruism, and the need for nurses and doctors to take a step back and truly listen. Josie’s death shouldn’t have happened, and would’ve probably been avoided if someone took the time to truly listen to her mother’s concerns. Reading Josie’s story opened my eyes to the dire need of communication between the medical team and patients and/or family members. Sorrel, Josie’s mother, tried numerous times to alert the medical team of the changes observed in her daughter, yet no one listened. She highlights the severe breakdown in communication and the necessary steps needed to rectify our medical
Pressure is experienced by many kids, and their parents are a primary source of it. The narrator in The Boat by Alistair MacLeod faces a tremendous amount of pressure from his parents. My parents also put a lot of pressure on me because they want me to be successful in their own way, and I do not find it helpful. To start, this pressure could lead to stress, which could then lead to long term problems such as anxiety and depression. Ever since I was young, my parents have wanted me to pursue a career in medicine.
I have personally seen that people have many different layers to them than what they let on. For example one of my friends has a couple mental illnesses that i would not have known if he had not told me and it changed my view of him in a good way. I have also had personal experience when it comes to talking to someone to help relieve some of the stress. Recently home life hasn 't been fantastic and i have had to rely on teachers and therapist to help work out the stress and helping me work through the anxiety. Lastly i have seen That determination for a goal can make you achieve that goal.
Hospice and End-of Life – Dispelling the Misnomer While virtually everyone has heard of Hospice care, far fewer people fully understand exactly what hospice does. Of course, a big part of the Hospice mission involves easing the passing of terminally ill people who are facing impending death. For this reason, the general public often confuses a hospice referral with a death sentence. This misperception can cause a lot of problems when it comes to caring for the terminally ill. The Financial Resource Center http://resourcecenter.cuna.org/21871/article/3932/html cites the father of Angela Esposito as just one example.
The idea “being with” includes conveying “you are not alone,” enduring with, not burdening, and being accessible” (Gemmill, William, Cooke, & Grant, 2012). This displays a powerful message to the family being there at all costs (Gemmill et al., 2012). In this scenario the child was dying but by allowing the family in, during this critical time, one knew personally and professionally that this was the right thing to do. This was done through attempting to save his life, I never left his side. By being emotionally present and connected to the patient and to the family, “that no matter how bad the circumstances might be, we don 't abandon them” (Swanson, 1998, para.18).
I want to be a surgical technologist, meaning I will assist with surgery. The patient sees me for a short amount of time, however, in that time I can show love and make that patient feel at ease in their frightened state of mind. Going along with this, I will reverence the unique dignity of each patient. Surgery caters to the patient not the procedure; each patient is different for instanced: one may be overweight, malnourished, or have allergies. All of these are obstacles and are approached with careful consideration of how to keep each unique patient safe.
As a medical assistant I would ensure that the patient understands that this is a judgement free zone. I would also remind the patient that we are professionals and there to help them. Skin disorders are common, and no patient should feel embarrassed in a clinic or hospital setting. It is our job to calm and reassure the patient that we are there to Help. I would speak very calming to help calm the patient down themselves.
If euthanasia is legalize, there might be a concern which poor patients and their family members refuse to accept treatment because of the high costing in order keeping them alive while the treatment will not guarantee that the patient will be cure. Therefore, some the them might choose to refuse treatment or even their family members do not want to spend the money on the treatment. Thus , legalize of euthanasia will serve death sentence to many disabled, elderly citizens and terminally ill patient and it might not their own will. 3.2 Euthanasia devalues human life It is one of reason why euthanasia should not be legalize. Proponents of euthanasia believe that it will do not degrades life for those who are suffering from incurable illness.
Euthanasia is the practice of painlessly ending a person or animal’s life because they are suffering and cannot be cured. It is a humane option compared to being forced to live out the rest of your life living off a machine and in great pain. Nevertheless, people still find it to be against their morals and do not want it to be in practice. Dating back two centuries, the argument of euthanasia has been debated on whether it should be allowed, and controversy follows it around everywhere it is allowed. There are two types of euthanasia: voluntary and involuntary.
