Maisie Dobbs was a battlefield nurse in The Great War, and helped with wounded soldiers. After the war, she used her skills to help her solve cases. Because she was a nurse during World War I, and Maurice taught her medical things prior to the war, she could help figure out why her assistant was not functioning the way that he usually had. Although she was a nurse, her primary role in the story was a detective. This quote lists a few roles that she’s had: “She has proven herself as a psychologist and investigator, and has even won over Detective Inspector Stratton of Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad--an admirable achievement for a woman who worked her way from servant to scholar to sleuth, and who also served as a battlefield nurse in The

Cheryl Mattingly’s Moral Laboratories is an article, detailing the struggles of having sick children with sickle cell anemia, analysing the series of events both mother and daughter face in light of chronic illness (99). This reading revolves around the story of Dotty, a dedicated mother, and her 9 year-old daughter Betsy. Dotty’s life is solemnly focused on her daughter’s health, treatments, and happiness. Betsy condition of sickle cell, influences Dotty’s ambition to discover treatments and learn more about the disease. During this process, Betsy’s mother becomes rather knowledgeable about sickle cell anemia, and it is this knowledge that causes her to become rather critical of the ways in which doctors treat Betsy (Mattingly 115).
When you are charge nurse/team leader, making assignments is pure delegation. For example, I worked with Nurse M. and she was amazing when it came to taking care of patients who were confused, cantankerous, or agitated. She always seemed to know the right thing to say, in the right tone, and she had a way of establishing mutual goals and expectations. Most of the time, at the end of her shift, the patient would be calmer, relaxed and more willing to work with the nurses. Assigning Nurse M. these types of patients fit perfectly with the Five Rights of Delegation.

It is very clear to most that Grey’s Anatomy is an inaccurate depiction of medicine and the healthcare industry. Though heavily dramatized and ‘doctored’, there have been moments of learning, especially with this ethical issue.

Kim is a newly married patient with stage IV large cell lung cancer that has spread to her lymph nodes and liver.

ABSTRACT Florence Nightingale was born into a wealthy family; Nightingale was determined to enter nursing despite its low status at this time.

After meeting her friend, Ellen Gates Starr (which happens to be me) Jane went about searching for a position in life.
This short story is an embellishment to illustrate the impact of the Rest Cure. “The story is not intended to drive people crazy, but to save people from being driven crazy, and it worked,” Charlotte Perkins Gilman declared (Siegel, 2008). Similar to Lauren Hale, countless women are able to resonate with Gilman and “The Yellow Wallpaper” (2008). Lauren Hale explains being able to identify with the main character due to her own journey of motherhood and insanity thereafter. Charlotte Perkins Gilman successfully incorporated a realistic insanity into the main character of the short story as well as exposing the mental health diagnoses and cures for the 19th century.
