It is not just about looking after the patients, it also is about understanding them and the care they want to receive. Every individual has beliefs and values that they follow. The nurse has to acknowledge that and then proceed with providing quality care. Nursing also is also about establishing strong relationships with the patients, patients’ family and co-workers. Providing care should
Patient’s safety is an essential aspect of nursing care that should be part of the culture of a nurse as she cares for her patients. This requires that the nurse behavior should be directed towards achieving total safety 0f the patients throughout hospitalization. It is imperative that a nurse leader should adequately check the safety culture that is in place in her working environment and articulates a strategy to guide personal approach as they work to improve the safety
However, in the past, people were not quite so accepting. Before the 21st century, gay people in the US were forced to live in shame, as they faced political and social discrimination. Ellen, being gay herself, refused to succumb to this injustice. In 1997, DeGeneres demonstrated incredible courage and self-confidence
Likewise, many people live in nations where their beliefs and the law do not match; citizens may be against an existing law, or citizens may wish for an amendment. Comparing statistics of those for and against same-sex marriage from only a few years ago and the most updated one, the decrease in the number of opposition is clear. From this, it can be hypothesized that media has worked its way through to guide the society to learn more about gay people before making any concrete judgments about them. As homosexuality was forcefully banned a few decades ago, people and nations have started to understand the idea of it through the help of media, something we encounter in our everyday lives. Nowadays, multiple TV shows that are aired in many parts of the
I knew that same sex marriage have been a very popular topic for not only the adults of america but also for kids my age. I never thought about reading court cases involving this topic but after I did it was a very eye-opening experience. The court case is outdated and there have been new laws set in place since then involving same sex marriage but it is still an important one that helped shape a newer United States of America.
Sexism and racism are two things which have been a big issue within human society for many years. In the past sexism and racism were both extreme phenomenon which had no boundaries. Racism is still prevalent in today’s day and age, however, it is not as bad as it once was. As Peggy McIntosh spoke about in White Privilege and Male Privilege, in 1988, there are many examples of white privilege which was going on in her time. For example, she stated how as a white you do not have to be scared others will not take your advice because of your race.
Perhaps it’s partly because of misinformation that has been believed for many years or that Asian-Americans “make few political demands and keep their heads down” (Bronner, 2012). Some Asian-Americans believe their parents taught them they must honor their family name and find ways to make the grades instead of causing trouble (Bronner, 2012). I do believe that Asian-Americans usually have higher values because in 18 years as a police officer I have only arrested one Asian-American and that was for DUI. It is true that many Asian-Americans are in the technical fields, but hardly any are in top management jobs and many more occupy service jobs (Williams, 2015). This model minority image of Asian-Americans has caused some problems with other minorities, but the problem is that experimental research has been done to look at the ramifications (Chao et al, 2013).
Treating them well and with respect etc. Compassion relates on how we provide our care through relationships, based on empathy, dignity and respect, and can also be seen on how individuals perceive their care. Competence relates to all individuals in health caring roles need to understand a person’s health and social needs, to be able to deliver the best care and treatments based on evidence and research.
As a first generation American, I have seen my family, specifically my parents, face certain societal preclusions, namely language based discrimination. Being immigrants, my parents do not have traditional eastern American accents, and therefore have been presumed uneducated by many people they have encountered. This would often lead to my brothers and me handling conversations with financial and educational institutions, because, as semi-articulate teenagers, we would receive more respect and have more authority than our middle-aged parents. However, one of the few places that my parents have never faced this kind of discrimination is a hospital. When I was ten I had to tell my father that he needed his gallbladder removed.
Elder Abuse The mistreatment of the elderly is not something as it has been there since antiquity and despite its severity, the society continues to ignore elder abuse. Various initial trials to understand the clinical spectrum of this phenomenon and to identify an effective intervention strategy have been limited by their unpredictable nature. In the past decade, there have been improvements on the research regarding this subject as a way of provoking interest in the field of nursing, particularly professionals who take care of the older adults and their immediate families. Though in most cases the term elderly abuse has been used to refer to physical mistreatment of the older citizens, financial exploitation as part of psychological mistreatment
In the news of 2017 there’s been quite an amount of bashing and opinionated laws being addressed. In the century we live in now you would think that everyone would be more open minded or more respectful to the point of where they don’t allow things to bother them. Transgender Equality Rights has been a powerful topic for ages and today the LGBT community are still fighting to just be treated like humans. People learn that “all men are created equal.” However, equality is something that men and women in the LGBT community struggle with and have yet to achieve. LGBT are fighting for bathroom rights, transgender marriage, and how transgender don’t qualify on health care.
