The elderly population is more at risk to abuse on a physical, emotional, and mental level. With elder mistreatment comes the aspect of the elderly trying to work out the problems on their own which in turn can lead to the issue being neglected. Elders who are unable to live in assisted living facilities or nursing homes face the risk of going uncared for and not receiving medical attention
This behavior can be seen as demeaning, and the elderly see the message it sends as one of devaluing them (Williams 2012). Improper attitudes by healthcare staff toward the elderly can lead older patients to become complicit with their physicians, believing that the stereotypical symptoms of aging, such as cognitive decline, functional impairment, pain and others are to be expected to accompany all people into old age (Williams 2012). This shared, semiotic attitude of fatalism can prevent physicians and older patients alike from seeing the elderly as capable and productive managers of their own lives.
Clarrise thought for herself and that worried many people. Sooner or later, different scares people.Society has made an effect on every person, it could affect you positively or negatively. Mildred, Montag’s wife, in the book Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, is not the world’s best wife. Society has brought her down to this level because the community does not want the civilians to be thinking for themselves. It is as if the generation is being controlled with what they are able to say, or even do.
Ordinary people fear what they do not understand.” (paragraph 4). Regular and ordinary people, fear people who don’t try and fit into society. If you don’t fit in, then you are ridiculed as an individual by everyone else. Another reason I agree with Feys is because many people are put under so much pressure to conform and be like everyone else. They in turn sometimes lose who they are, or who they want to be and are left unsure.
No matter the time period or decade, there is always a norm that society pressures people to conform to and those who don’t are typically frowned upon. Those who struggle with mental illnesses or disabilities typically feel out of place and misunderstood. Society makes them feel like outcasts, which can lead to insecurities and sometimes depression. However, today, doctors and society know a lot more about different mental illnesses and the effects of them than in the past. Almost everything can be diagnosed and this means that a lot of symptoms can be fixed or subsided by medication or therapy.
Thought most people already know isolation is a dangerous to mental health it also can shorten a person 's life. Isolation can cause all sorts of problems for a patient from hallucinations,Dementia, Heart Disease, Liver Failure, and even induce a coma. In correlation to brain development, Elders who are lonely have a significantly higher chance to be diagnosed with dementia. The individuals who have experienced the effects of low spirits have a more serious danger of getting dementia, but the makers have over exaggerated this. The Hazardous results from having the emotions of being alone and not just the way that somebody lives by themselves or is socially isolated.
Unfortunately, unsafe conditions lead to abuse and neglect. The harmful settings create further complications to health and overall well-being of a vulnerable population. Millions of the elderly population fall victim to inadequate nursing home facilities. Contacting a
With the high rate of turnover resulting from high burn-out rates, managers are focused more on hiring and retaining staff, and not on implementing policy changes. In this nurse’s practice, many nurses would love to research and apply evidence to practice, but complain that lack of time is the biggest issue. Combined with the lack of encouragement from management, this has a devastating impact on the ability to perform this vital part of
Nurses fatigue is growing problem nurse face each day in the healthcare environment, and he can be caused by long hours, sleep deprivation, and possibly by accepting extra assignments can be dangerous for both nurses and patient. These inadequacies can result in major implications for the health and safety of registered nurses and can compromise patient care which can lead to fatalities. (American Nurses Association, 2014). In my experience, being fatigued from working much 12-hour shifts consecutively was very difficult as I felt extremely tired, resulting in lack of focus, missing important details during the handing over the process with impaired cognitive functioning. This I found was detrimental to the patients and myself as it impedes quality and has a deleterious effect on patient safety.
First is the topic of on the bias of ageism itself. Especially in the area of hiring, the bias against older aged people tends to be strong. The perception is that older people have less energy and may be unable to do a more stressful, demanding job. When Ben is first brought into the company, several employees assume several negative stereotypes. An example includes when Becky constantly made complaints about Ben’s lack of hearing, implying that this must be the result of old age.
Alzheimer 's is a hard disease to deal with, and more often, caregivers are needed for patients with Alzheimer 's disease. As a caregiver, it will not be an easy thing to do. In fact, caregivers are often stressed and overwhelmed because of the frequent care the Alzheimer 's patients require. They require help with eating, bathing, dressing, taking prescribed medication, communicating, help going to the bathroom, and more. Patients with Alzheimer 's are not able to perform these daily tasks because they may forget how to do them.
Secondly, many of the employees in the hospitals have fixed job status for a very long time and when there is no scope for any growth, they get frustrated and it is seen in their performance and when they get any offer from other organization even for the same position with higher salary they tend to move out of the organization. Thirdly, I believe that flexibility is very important today with the employees, because if the working hours are not flexible, they tend to either do not prefer working here or when they get the opportunity they move out. So if wee summarize, in my experience I believe that wages, growth and flexibility are the main reasons that cause turnover in the
