Lennie tries to be in line with society however, his disability makes it much harder, especially in the time period that this story takes place in. To begin, public hospitals were understaffed and patients were often left without any kind of treatment. According to blogs.cofc.edu, conditions were also deteriorating due to a lack of funding during the Great Depression. This is important because it could explain why Lennie is not getting any actual treatment in the story. People who had a mental disability were also usually
Flannery spins a tale about human deficiencies and the pedestrian approach human beings take to various issues that make them look lame. In the short story, the author demonstrates how various actions by individuals make them appear lame. In medical terminologies, lame refers to a condition in which a person to be unable to walk properly. The inability to walk properly impairs the performance of some duties by a person. Figuratively speaking, the concept of lame refers to the various deficiencies in our inner beings that prevent us from being responsible persons.
The great depression had affect Canada socially, as population changes occurred, as less immigrants go to canada, and birth rate changes, as well as death rates. Throughout the 1930s, Canada’s population growth reached their lowest point since the 1880s. Canada’s birth rate dropped from 13.1 live births per 1000 people in 1930 to only 9.7 per 1000 people in 1937. The lowest ratio until the 1960s. This affected the nation significantly, as the population decreases, not much children would grow up to work for the nation, thus creating less income and therefore not increasing the nation’s GDP as much as it can.
Resilience Elderly mistreatment is a topic that is constantly talked about. Elderly people are believed to be weak and fragile which is thought to put them at risk to abuse. With old age comes the risk of not having family members or secure relationships. Elderly people are forced into homes or forced into trusting people they have no prior relationship with. The elderly population is more at risk to abuse on a physical, emotional, and mental level.
I believe that even if the hospital leadership are able to understand the climate and culture theory, it would be very difficult for them to translate to nurses, physicians and other professionals who already have a professional and organizational culture they are used to. Consequently, the implementation of creating or improving the climate or culture separately to aid stemming the crisis would be difficult. Although, I believe if it is introduced as trying to create a better organizational climate for the hospital or clinic in general with special focus on opioid addicted patients and organizational culture is treated as a component of the climate it may be easier to deploy and get good response. This is because as discussed/suggested in many of our readings people tend to hold on to culture so resisting change. But I believe people generally want a better climate to work in whatever the culture.
However the severe ones are the main reason for the inability to return to service. Now why should we help those who are not able to return to active duty? Because according to P.B.S., most veterans’ disabilities are preventing them from being employed. So what is the solution? The United States government is left to compensate their disabilities.
With the weight of student debt on a person’s shoulder, they are less likely to be financially successful in the future. “Over the last decade, college-loan balances in the United States have jumped to an all-time high of $1.4 trillion, according to a recent report by Experian” (Dickler). With student debt increasing a person’s financial
R. Belfield and H. M. Levin (Washington, DC: Brookings Institution Press, 2007) estimates that if dropouts who completed high school attended college at rates similar to those of high school graduates, the difference would exceed $550,000.) The results of drop out for a student of high school can be severe and can have lasting social and individual and effects. High school dropouts are found to work at low paying jobs earning less than $13,000 per year. The high cost of high school dropouts is not only the problem of the individual. The cost of social services, lost wages and taxes alone is $250 million in the United States.
Excessive power of autonomy changes a beneficent doctor-patient relationship to a client-consumer type relationship. I contend that this form of doctor-patient relationship will perpetuate the provision of inadvisable, harmful therapies. Without a beneficent objective, advances in technology and care provision of modern ICU would become ineffective for society. Care would be provided merely on request and provided excessively where it is unlikely to produce a meaningful benefit. I will argue that while the term “meaningful benefit” is open to discussion, it must consist of a significant component of medical judgement.
According to Gideon and Sung (2011) explains the three issues that concern successful reintegration was lack of treatment programs, lack of collaboration from resource providers, and need of specialized treatment (pg. 239).

As mentioned in one instance in video was that while they have a program to provide housing while in parole they are limited in budget to provide more housing. Employment was also another issue due to background checks leading the to prevent of a stable income to supporting themselves.
