The Incident In 1998, Dr. Linda Reynolds of the Brooke Surgery in Hyde reached to John Pollard, who was the coroner for the South Manchester District, about Dr. Harold Shipman’s high rate of deaths of all of his patients. This was brought to the police attention and the police did not pay so much attention to it, assigning some of the newer police officers, which of course had little experience in being a police officer. These assigned police officers were unable to find enough evidence to charge Dr. Harold Shipman. Shipman’s investigation was then dropped and that same year Shipman killed 3 more people, with last victim being Kathleen Grundy, whose death certificate was recorded by Shipman stating that the cause of death was “old age.” Angela Woodruff, Kathleen Grundy’s daughter became concern of what could have really happened to her mother when solicitor Brian Burgess informed her that a will has been made by Kathleen, excluding her and her children, leaving most of the money to Harold Shipman. Once Woodruff reported this, Kathleen’s body was dug out and examined, containing traces of diamorphine.
“Based on the true story of physician and neurologist Oliver Sacks, “Awakenings” chronicles the life of patients who were struck with encephalitis lethargica during and after World War I, in the 1920s and 30s…”(Buckley,2012). Buckley continue to say that the disease hits the brain that in 1920s was irreversible. The disease killed a lot of people and most people that had been affected with the disease had cause them to be paralyze or went to sleep for a long period of time.

For example, my aunt works in a hospital, she read the report of a 23-year-old her patient that had ate 46 bags of heroin and now was in intensive care. My speech today on heroin will be divided in two parts, the first part of my speech I will be talking about, current problems we will face if we use heroin, the second
Each doctor received what amounted to barrels for storing water for sanitary purposes. By doing a lot of surgeries, doctors gained a lot of experience not only in dealing with war wounds, but also in their knowledge about the vertebrae, spine, and head. While men were in battle, women filled the need for bodies in the hospitals. It is estimated that 3200 women served as nurses. They risked their lives leaving home to work in the cesspools of infection.
She is married with John A. McCallum, a hearing man and they have four children’s. She lost her hearing when she was just eighteen months after she was rushed to the hospital with a dangerous high fever, which was later identifying as the Haemophilus influenzae virus.

They may have been an influence on the death, but it was never proved. She was often sick, which could have been a bigger influence. Since there are multiple influences on a person, this judge should not be able to determine if an influencer should have consequences or not. People should be responsible for their actions; however, due to an infinite amount of influences on a person’s life, not everyone should have repercussions. Likewise, only people who committed an act of murder should have consequences created by an unbiased court and not the morals of one man.

In 1966, while Dr. Oliver Sacks was on the staff of a New York hospital, he came across some very unusual patients. About a third of all victims died, and others could not sleep and so lost their lives as well. Still others fell into a deep coma in which they spent the rest of their lives. Ultimately, their long illness cost them a great deal because they never grew beyond the time almost fifty years before when they caught the disease. Most passed away in the years following their treatment, but they taught doctors much about chemical therapy and gave new insights into how the human brain works.

The New York Times revealed five infant deaths related to whooping cough and all under the age of three months old. These infants were not vaccinated against pertussis, which meant they had higher risk of disease exposures (New York Times). Pertussis is a preventable disease, if the child gets vaccinated. It’s been five year since the death of the five infants in California, but cases of whooping cough climbs each year due to refusal of vaccination. Vaccination should be required for all children enter school or daycare facilities because the risk of exposures is way higher than the side effects of a vaccine.
A vaccine is a dead or weakened sample of a disease that is injected into a person so if they happen to come across that disease their body will be able to identify it as well as destroy the bacteria or virus. The influenza first attacked people who were in close contact with each other, places like military bases and prisons had to face the deadly disease head on in it 's early stage. At first it was thought to be a small dilemma that would be over within weeks, instead it spread like wildfire. “By noon, the camp’s hospital had dealt with over one hundred ill soldiers. By week’s end, that number jumped to five hundred.” (1918 Influenza, Paragraph four).
