Orchids can live without being taken care of all the time. Similarly, Ruth lived without the love and nurture from her mother and this is why Ruth and the orchid have resemblances. Also flowers in general represent sadness to LuLing because flowers are at funerals and LuLing had to suffer through many loved ones dying. Also for much of LuLing's life she had to be strong and live without the help and love of others to get her through many tough situations in her life. Lastly Ruth tries really hard to be independent and doesn't accept the help she needs from others because just like orchids need water Ruth ends up needing the help she had denied.
And Vardaman is pretty much messed up for the entire book. Most of the problems they face during the journey to Jefferson are Anse’s fault. He is almost as bad as the grandma in A Good Man is Hard to Find; but luckily, he doesn’t get anyone killed in the process. I also sure that Addie really did not want to be buried at her families grave site. She really did not have a great relationship with her family and it begs the question, why is she not being buried at home with her immediate family?
In the text, it says,“Lyddie did not attempt to go to church. Her body wouldn’t have cooperated if she’d had the desire to go(98).” In this piece of evidence, Lyddie is too exhausted to go the church, due to overworking and long hours at the factory. If she wasn’t working at the factory anymore, this most likely would not be happening. Also in the text, it states, “It ain’t right for this place to suck the strength of their youth, then cast them off like dry husks in the wind(113).” In the quote, Lyddie’s friend, Betsy, is sent away with her uncle to Maine for being too weak to work at the factory due to being sick. Her illness was caused by all the dust and lint in the factories.
Often, sick and elderly people realize that their disability limits liveliness in their everyday lives, making living alone too challenging. They desire to change their conditions and stay in the warmth of home, yet, favor not to become a burden to their family. This is something that takes place to many of us at some point. It can be overwhelming to have a member of the family who needs constant care. Plenty of us simply doesn 't have enough time or the facilities to be available all the time, although we may want to.
This means that children need discipline sometimes, and the Hadley parents find themselves not being able to follow through with it. Since the children are rarely chastised, they don’t show respect for their parents because they infrequently get in trouble for their actions. In addition, when George started to turn off all of the technology sources throughout the house, Peter and Wendy begged their mother to let them have a couple more minutes in the nursery. She reported back to George and he said, “’All right—alright, if they’ll shut up. One minute mind you and then off forever’” (16).

While her children were learning to understand American culture, she was stuck in a small apartment alone, this time she didn 't even have her mother-in-law to keep her mind busy. She didn’t know the area or the language well enough so she couldn’t ask others for direction. She would have to wait until my grandfather was home or when one of her children weren’t too busy to take her
The bathing issue occurs for months without anyone saying anything about it, because most of the elderly family members don’t even go visit them, so they are not there to witness or defend their relative. I do believe nurses should be taking care of their patients with compassion (Peate 1). I am sure that when their family members get sick they want the best care they could get so why not treat your patients like they are part of your family. There are many nurses out there that I’ve seen from my experience not even liking to teach student nurses when they go to their clinical. If they are not happy with what they do they should not be there making sick patients feel worse than they already
Nurses have identified that, the busy nature of their work environment, the lack of time, privacy and resources prevent the development of therapeutic relationships with patients. Emergency department nurses have to continuously care for patients within four hours of admission (NHS 2013). The busy nature of this environment, understaffing and time constraints may result in nurses not identifying and addressing the reasons for patients’ self-harming behaviour. This could potentially lead to repeated admissions at a time when emergency departments are already under pressure. It is crucial that nurses in emergency department have to be compassionate, empathetic and effective in assessing and treating some patients, especially due to the associated risk of repeat episodes of self-harm and suicide following an initial
The patient, the foetus, has not be informed before the therapy as he or she is still in gravidity. That is the moral obligation of doctors to explain the procedures thoroughly to the patient for its risk and the type of approach used (Walters, Palmer, & Johnson, 1997). The decision is mainly made by their parents and not the baby itself. As ‘one made, it could not be corrected back’, patient may not agree to the procedures when they grow up and leads to a legal issues. Furthermore, it is also immoral to operate on foetus as the risk of operation is high.

The first essay I chose to read was called I Am in Dementia Prison with My Mom, Janet had no prior knowledge or understanding as to why her mother’s health, mind, and thought process was deteriorating. She couldn’t come to terms with her mom being mental sick and when she did she had help and support from her entire family. The second was titled Transferring Mom was New, But Restlessness and Inactivity Kindled her Agitation. Against her and he husband better judgment she took her mom to the store. I believe she did this because she did not want to tell her mom no, as a caregiver, especially to a loved one sometime following your intuition and saying no can be difficult being I may feel like you are taking away their rights as a person.
