Outpatient services “eliminates inefficient, ineffective or unnecessary processes in a hospital setting” (Grubem et al., 2013). Not only does this benefit the hospitals with expensive procedures but it also helps the patient with costs. This will also benefit the hospitals so they could have more room for patients who really need to stay in the hospital for more serious diseases or use the hospital beds for “community based emergency” situations (Torrens & Williams, 2008). Other forms or alternative medical care is also available to patients such as chiropractors, acupuncture, or other holistic medicine that can help in a person’s well-being. There are more and more people turning to alternative medicine especially to those who do not have health insurance or ones that cannot afford “conventional” therapy because it is too expensive (Shi & Singh,
Once the insane were no longer being dehumanized, they got more liberties around the asylum, they were given the ability to have free- will, and the government was creating laws acknowledging them as human beings. One must take into consideration the amount of knowledge physicians received in the 19th century as oppose to now, the 21st century was exceedingly different. They will obviously not treat patients like we do so now, but the advancements of no longer chaining them marked a great revolution for change. How could someone be held responsible to treat the sick correctly if they don't know what “correctly” is? In a few years, a new discovery might say that the way we treat the insane now is incorrect and inhumane, but to us it’s the most advanced sense of training we have received—just as they did in the mid 19th
"Isolation as a Way of Protection" Sometimes people would rather walk away from their problems instead of facing them. Isolation is a way of feeling protected for some people due to their fear of being hurt because of bad experiences. Walking away and isolation are effective ways of avoiding problems, however, it will not change the reality of life and the good or bad that comes with it. In the movie, "The Village" directed by Shyamalan, the elders isolated themselves and their families in order to be protected from the real world but at the end, the movie shows the audience that people need each other in order to be happy or safe. Lucius helped Ivy when they were younger, but he stopped doing it because Ivy 's sister Kitty was interested in Lucius.
Inmates are more likely to have higher rates of infections due to their living conditions and exposure to persons with diseases. In order to reduce mental and medical health costs in the prison system, there are a few suggested strategies. As the warden of a prison system, my administrators and I can try several strategies to promote and increase the recruitment and retention of staff by offering a salary that creates competition, benefits, and additional incentives to the staff are essential. Nevertheless, instead of hiring from a private sector, hospitals or doctor’s office; the prison system can employ a staff of medical physicians of their own. The hiring of reliable and consistent staff can reduce the turnover rates and increase the chances of consistency in staff.
More people get incarcerated for non-violent crimes and crimes caused by mental illnesses or drug abuse (Webb, 2009) and because these people get put in regular prisons, instead of in mental health facilities or facilities to help against drug addiction, where they could be treated to further prevent crimes driven by their illness (Webb, 2009), the prisons get overfilled and cannot hold the more ‘important’ prisoners that needed to be locked away from the public. A strong link of the criminal justice process is that the system tries to keep it fair for everyone. Every defendant has the right to an attorney so they can be defended properly and fairly and “Only judges who are adequately informed about a case can effectively control the proceedings and examine evidence” (Tochilovsky, 2002) It is also important for the criminal justice system that those involved show discretion and although this is not always the case, discretion by the judges, police, etc. further ensure proper treatment of the
Dranitsin, the restraint leads to low morale in the internal order of hospital, but "to give freedom for the patient within the institution, treat him as a human being and fulfill his desires is actually the true humanity, which would not at all be disturbed by the fact that, if necessary, a strait waistcoat could be applied" (Dranitsin 1887, c. 437). Another psychiatrist from St. Petersburg, P. Y. Rosenbach supposed that abandoning physical violence would undoubtedly be an ideal, which all the psychiatrists should strain after. However, he was surprised by "the claim for the absolute deployment of the non-restraint, exposed by a number of psychiatrists, mostly in Western Europe, as an obligatory clause for a model of a psychiatric institution" (Rosenbach 1887, p. 438). Based on his observations of the foreign experience of psychiatric hospitals in Berlin and London, the author wondered what was better on this model: “The absence of any confinement, but at the same time locking the wild half-naked patients into small isolated rooms with stone floors, covered with decomposed urine?" (Rosenbach 1887, c. 438).
The 13th Amendment states that government is not obligated to impose harsh authoritative power upon its citizens, but current United States prisons are home to some of the harshest conditions because the prisoners are not malnourished enough. This is due to the poor working conditions and lack of food provided. Also, the United States implemented the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act that made it illegal for United States companies to buy from countries that allowed penal labor in the hopes of getting lessening the topic of penal labor. Instead, companies saw an increase in product from those countries, but the United States did not say anything because penal labor is a billion dollar industry. The solution to get rid of penal labor is the the United States Government should revise the 13th Amendment and have mandatory career training and education programs in prisons, because these will help the prisoners in their lives.
In an aesthetic and reconstructive ward, we see patients coming in for aesthetic surgery. Unlike most of the patients they would prefer non-disclosure of condition to their relatives. The APN also should not reveal patient’s personal information if it is not related to the medical care. In this case the APN would uphold the confidentiality standard by not revealing the condition without the consent of the patient. Justice –With APN in a ward it is unlikely for an APN to see to only one patient.
Human Experimentation The looming concern of human experimentation was enough to deter some individuals from seeking the medical care that they needed for their well-being. The thought that trusted medical professionals had the power to perform unethical experiments on them while they were in their care was enough to let them live with whatever ailment that they had. By not seeking out the care that they desperately needed in some cases only lead to further problems. Several doctors abused their patients' trust for their own curiosities. Those curiosity-driven procedures led to many medical discoveries, cures, and medications.
To such people I ask, then do people truly have control over their own mental health? The fact is, one always has more control on their own mental health than any external force. So no matter how difficult it can get, there is always a way to resist depression. Given these points, it is clear that isolation causes people to suffer from depression. Parental isolation, social isolation, and the refusal to try new things are all gateways to this awful disease.
This can lead to them changing as a person which is what we would want; a changed person to come out of those prison doors and back into society for another chance. Involving higher education in prisons would help stop the revolving door of the ghetto-to- prison that has now helped build America to be in this current time of mass incarceration. It would return these prisoners to our society as more job ready than when they went in and be able to legitimately support their families and be less of a threat to society than before. This wouldn’t always be the case but you would see a drastic change in the number of re-incarcerations. I would love to see a time where the system helps people get their life together and doesn’t prejudge and keep people in a hamster ball so to speak.
Suicidal thoughts would begin to take place, all because the medication had not been effective as the user didn’t affectively take the drug as ordered. If a death was to occur the medication would most likely not be to blame but the way the user had been taking the medication and not communication with their
